A joint is where two or more bones come together in your body, like the knee and shoulder. Sometimes, joints can be damaged by arthritis and other diseases, injuries, or other causes. When this occurs, you may need to consider joint replacement surgery, where an orthopaedic surgeon removes all or part of the damaged joint and puts in a new one. Replacing a joint can relieve pain and help you move and feel better.
