Heraeus Medical Patient Service: Useful information about joint replacements

Joints have an important function in our bodies: they ensure that a person is able to move while at the same time absorbing any impacts.

When joints become especially worn or are damaged, they cause pain and restrict mobility. In this case your doctor will often recommend a joint replacement.

On the following pages we have prepared answers to your questions about joint replacement surgery. Artificial joints can now remain in the body for decades thanks to modern surgical and anchoring techniques.

Please note that this is general information and cannot replace a medical consultation and examination. It is only intended to prompt any questions and supplement the discussions you have with your doctor. He or she can individually assess your symptoms and recommend the best treatment for you.
