Orthopedic Surgery Replaces Damaged Cartilage With Artificial Parts

Arthritis and years of use take their toll on your body, leading to pain, stiffness and swelling. Bones in the joints are connected by tissue, with cartilage covering the ends of the bone. Total joint replacement at North Idaho’s Northwest Specialty Hospital takes place when an entire damaged knee, shoulder, or hip is exchanged for a new artificial one. The cartilage is swapped out for a metal or plastic prosthesis. This prevents the bones from rubbing together painfully and causing limited movement.

Patients Regain Quality Of Life Through Total Joint Replacement In North Idaho

We perform total joint replacement in North Idaho at our top-ranked hospital. The procedure is performed while the patient is under anesthesia and usually takes a few hours. Patients are usually encouraged to use their new knee, shoulder, or hip shortly after the surgery. Physical therapy most often begins the next day. Exercise is important to a full recovery after total joint replacement. In North Idaho, our patients receive education on how to use their new joint to ensure success. New knees, shoulders, and hips usually last at least a decade. This means you can enjoy pain-free mobility that can improve your quality of life for years to come.
