A TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT (THR) is a surgical procedure in which damaged parts of the hip joint are replaced with artificial parts or prosthesis. The goals of THR are to relieve pain, improve function of the hip joint, and increase mobility.
Knee replacement (TKR), also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. The knee is one of the most complex joints in the body. The knees support the body's entire weight and are vulnerable to injury and arthritis.
Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure in which a joint (arthro-) is viewed (-scopy) using a small camera. Arthroscopy gives doctors a clear view of the inside of the knee. Arthroscopy is a very effective tool for treating knee problems.
