Determining whether to undergo total joint replacement and revision surgery is a big decision, but one that can result in improved function and mobility. Joint replacement surgery entails replacing a diseased joint—most commonly the hip, knee, or shoulder—with a well-designed and functional artificial implant. Joint replacement surgery is a necessary procedure when considerable cartilage loss occurs in your joint, causing bone-on-bone friction, debilitation, and overbearing pain. Additionally, revision joint replacement surgery is required when there's an infection in the replaced joint, instability in an implanted joint, or when a worn-down artificial joint needs to be replaced and improved.
