Joint replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure performed by an orthopaedic surgeon to restore a damaged joint by replacing all or part of it with a prosthesis. This prosthesis helps eliminate chronic pain caused by arthritis or another joint condition so that patients can regain full joint functionality and enjoy a better quality of life. This form of surgery is often recommended for individuals who have chronic joint pain that interferes with daily activities and that has not responded to conservative treatment options.
