If your answer is yes to the any of these questions, you might be suffering from arthritis-a degenerative joint disease, and you are the candidate for joint replacement procedure. Contact us for consultation. Arthritis is caused by eventual loss of cartilage lining the joints. Arthritis may cause pain, swelling, stiffness, tenderness, deformity of the joint and limit the range of motion. Arthritis may be treated by a total joint replacement where the damaged cartilage is removed and a new artificial implant or prosthesis is placed in the knee.
