Frequently Asked Questions About Orthopaedic Surgery

Can’t find what you are looking for? Ask your own question here.

Will I be able to do everything I used to do after surgery?

While the goal of surgery is to restore function and get you moving without pain, there are usually some limitations after orthopedic surgery. Talk to your orthopedic surgeon about realistic expectations after surgery.

How long do artificial joints last?

The life expectancy of artificial joints is being extended by advances in medical technology, particularly the prosthetic materials used in whole and partial hip, knee, elbow, and shoulder joints. In general, today’s prosthetic devices can endure anywhere from 15 to 20 years. Your exercise level, overall health, weight, and if you have arthritis are all factors that might affect prosthesis durability.

What is revision surgery?

Like human bone, the prosthetic devices used in joint replacement surgery can become damaged or simply wear out. If you’ve previously had partial or total joint replacement surgery but need to have the joint operated on again, it’s considered revision surgery.

What is arthroplasty?

Arthroplasty is the reconstruction or replacement of a joint such as a shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee or ankle. Depending on the extent of the joint injury or condition, you may need partial or total arthroplasty.

What is arthroscopic surgery?

Arthroscopic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that requires only small incisions thanks to a device known as an arthroscope. It lets your surgeon see inside the body and view the specific area being worked on during surgery without the need for large incisions.

What should I expect immediately after surgery?

With just about any orthopedic surgical procedure, including joint replacement surgery and revision surgery (replacing a worn-out artificial joint from a previous surgery), you’ll have some pain and swelling. Your doctor and clinical team will work with you to effectively manage your pain and ensure you’re healing as expected.
