Where the ends of two or more bones meet is called a joint. There are different types of joints like the “hinge” joint of the knee, the ball and socket joint of the hip and shoulder. When damage is caused to the cartilage which lines the ends of the bones is when you need joint replacement surgery. The cartilage might get damaged because of a fracture, or arthritis, or any other reasons. If all the non- surgical treatments like physical therapies, medications, etc. are not working then your orthopedic doctor might recommend a joint replacement surgery.
In such cases, your search for the best joint replacement surgeon begins.

All this is done in order to move the joint like it used to be before which is a normal and healthy movement.
