Joint Replacement Surgery Today
Each year in the U.S., more than a million men and women undergo hip and knee replacement surgery, replacing worn, diseased, painful joints with state-of-the-art prosthetic joints that can enable them to leave their pain behind, restore their mobility and lead fuller, more comfortable lives.
Today’s joint replacement patients benefit from significantly improved technology and innovative, minimally-invasive surgical techniques developed to promote faster, less painful recovery while substantially reducing the risk of complications.
New designs and amazingly durable materials support more customized approaches to joint replacement surgery so patients can achieve a more “natural” fit and enjoy far superior long-term outcomes compared to surgeries performed even a few years ago.
