Joint Replacement Surgeon in Delhi
At Apollo Spectra, we have best joint replacement surgeons in Delhi who are committed to helping you make the right medical decision. Joint replacement surgery replaces the damaged parts of a joint with new, externally made parts. A joint is the part of the body where the ends of two or more bones meet. Replacing a joint can reduce the joint pain and thereby help in better movement. The joints of the hips and the knees are the most common joints replaced. There are other parts of the body where the joints are replaced too like one of the shoulders, ankles, elbows, wrists and fingers but they are less common. The joint replacement helps in walking and aids in reducing stiffness. Solely relying on pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications may not help in the long run and may lead to wearing away of the joint surface. There are different kinds of joints within the body like the knee that has a ‘hinge sort of a joint’ similar to a hinged door due to its ability to bend and straighten, whereas, the hip and shoulder joints are ‘ball and socket joints’, in which the rounded end of one bone fits into the cup-shaped end of another bone.
