Joint Replacement

One of the most common causes of knee pain and loss of mobility is the wearing away of the joint's cartilage lining. When this happens, then bones rub against each, causing significant pain and swelling- a condition known as osteoarthritis. Trauma allows stress to build up in the bones and contributes to pain.

In a knee joint replacement surgery, the knee joint is replaced by an artificial joint called a prosthesis.Over the years, knee replacement techniques and instrumentation have undergone countless improvements. Today, knee replacement is one of the most common procedures performed at OSSMSA, and we take pride in using the latest minimally invasive, tissue sparing techniques.
