Severe joint pain is the most common reason patients undergo a joint replacement procedure. Whether your pain is the result of an old injury, of a degenerative condition like arthritis or osteoarthritis, or of a fracture, a joint replacement procedure may be the recommended treatment option.

Nearly any joint in the body can be replaced with a fully functioning artificial implant, but the most common joint replacements are of the hip, knee, or shoulder. 

When Should You See a Joint Replacement Specialist?

You may be a candidate for a joint replacement surgery if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe joint pain
  • Pain in the joint that keeps you awake at night
  • Joint discomfort that prevents you from participating in recreational activities
  • Joint pain that limits your ability to conduct necessary and daily functions, such as climbing stairs or standing up
  • You have attempted more conservative treatment methods, such as exercise or therapy, without success
