If you are in search of the reason behind the surgery of joint replacement then different options regarding arthritis may come to your mind. Rheumatoid or Osteoarthritis arthritis is the main kind of arthritis that is responsible for the surgery. This type of arthritis arise the cause of knee replacement and hip replacement.

The doctor usually recommends the patient to go for a surgery when all other treatments given to the patient to recover him had failed and the pain had grown unbearable causing difficulty in doing his daily works. Cartilage is a cushion between the bones in a joint which provide a protection to the bones. When this cartilage is damaged it causes inflammation in the tissues around the joint and the chronic situation arises for the patient. Slowly the cartilage wears and then the bones to get rubbed between them.

In case of arthritis surgery is not the first option to go for. First the patient is treated with medicines, exercises, physiotherapy or yoga. When it is seen that all this treatments are not capable in improving the patient then only the orthopedist go for surgery.

Osteoarthritis is the most well known type of arthritis that causes a surgery for joint replacement. Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis which ruins the joints mainly spine, knee, hip and wrist joints. It causes swelling, redness, stiffness and tenderness in the joints. The symptoms of this type of arthritis gradually increases and can make you reach the situation of knee replacement, hip replacement or replacement of any other joints effected by this. Age, obesity and injury are the main causes of Osteoarthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis is also responsible for the surgery of joint replacement. It is a chronic disease. In this the layers around the joints are affected, this disease is auto immune. Rheumatoid arthritis usually attacks the bones and cartilage of the patient. This causes stiffness and swelling in the affected area.

Actually a joint replacement surgery is quite different from other type of surgery. Knee replacement and hip replacement comes first in this type of surgery where as it can cover other parts of the body such as wrist, foot, elbow, shoulder and wrist. It depends upon the seriousness of the problem.

A total hip or a partial hip is replaced in a hip replacement surgery. The partial hip surgery is also known as Hip Resurfacing. In this type of surgery only a part of the hip is replaced. In case of knee the orthopedic usually suggest minor surgeries such as knee arthroscopy or torn meniscus surgery but if the arthritis is harsh a partial knee replacement may be the solution. In a partial surgery only a part of the knee is replaced where as in total knee replacement the whole knee is replaced. The partial surgery of knee heals soon and causes less suffering in comparison of total knee replacement.

So before consulting your doctor for surgery make sure that you have gone through all non surgical action. You should also be aware of the treatment given to you and the effect of the treatment.
