Many Indians suffer from arthritis of the hip and knee. Such joint problems can be successfully treated conservatively with rest, heat, ice, and anti inflammatory medications. But at some point of time when there is pain and loss of mobility it begins to affect the lifestyle of the patient and even his ability to work. The doctors might suggest some regular medication and regular physical therapy to come out of the pain and disorders. In many cases small procedures like arthroscopy or arthroscopic cartilage transplantation procedures is of great help, but usually with advanced arthritis, joint replacement becomes the best option to eliminate severe pain and restore patients to their usual lifestyle.

One of the most demanding joint procedures is total hip replacement procedure which is recommended for patients with arthritis who have severe pain and limited function, which significantly affects quality of life. Every individual have a different level of pain and the degree of pain sufficiently justifies surgery should be decided by the patient and the doctor together. Most of the arthritic hips are also a result of degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis.
Total knee replacement is one of the most recommended procedures for patients after hip replacement surgery. The patients who have arthritis and have severe pain have their life affected. The most common reason to have a total knee replacement is to relieve arthritic pain.The pain is often chronic and disabling and everyone’s pain is different, and the degree of pain should be sufficient to justify whether surgery should be done or not. Most of the painful and arthritic knees can become unstable, causing falls and other injuries.
Climbing stairs, getting up from chairs and extended walking can all be difficult. While most arthritic knees are the result of degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis, other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis (osteonecrosis), trauma, prior surgeries, instability and tumors can also be treated by total knee replacement.
