What causes joint problems?
The most common causes of the joints not working properly are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. While nobody is certain what causes arthritis, several things may contribute to joint weakening and lead to arthritis, including:
- Heredity (runs in the family)
- Problems with the development of the joint
- Genetic (inherited) tendency to problems with the cartilage
- Minor repetitive injures
- Sport Injury
- Severe trauma to the joint cartilage (the cushioning tissue at the end of the bones)
What happens during joint replacement surgery?
Joint replacement surgery is designed to replace the damaged cartilage and any bone loss. During the procedure, the damaged joint is resurfaced, and the patient's muscles and ligaments are used for support and function.
The prosthesis (replacement joint) is made of titanium, cobalt chrome, stainless steel, ceramic material, and polyethylene (plastic). It can be attached to the bone with acrylic cement or it can be press-fit, which allows bone to grow into the implant. Once the joint replacement is in place, the patient has physical therapy to be able to move and use the joint.
