Joint replacement hand surgery is a medical procedure that involves replacing damaged or diseased joints in the hand with artificial ones.
If you’ve been experiencing issues with the joints in your hands or wrists, joint replacement in Glasgow may be ideal for you. The primary goals of this surgery involve reducing pain, improving function, and enhancing your quality of life. Joint replacement surgery is typically recommended for those who have tried non-surgical treatments without success.
Common conditions that may require joint replacement surgery include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and involves removing the damaged joint and replacing it with a prosthetic joint made of metal, plastic, or ceramic materials.
