Yakima Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint Replacement surgery is one of the most common and successful operations in modern orthopaedic surgery. It involves replacing a destroyed or diseased joint with an artificial joint. In knee or hip replacement surgery, the artificial joint is made out of metal and plastic. Joint replacement in the hand usually uses silicone rubber or the patient’s own tissues,such as a portion of the tendon, to form the new joint.
