Hip and knee joint replacements are successful procedures that typically last 15-20 years. However, it’s possible for your joint replacement to fail, and when that happens, you need a hip or knee revision. Jaspreet Sidhu, DO, specializes in hip and knee revisions, successfully performing complex revision surgery that rebuilds your joint and restores your mobility. If you develop pain or stiffness in your joint replacement, call the office in Stockton, California, or schedule an appointment online.
Of the joint replacements performed in 2017, 79% of all hip replacements and 83% of all knee replacements were due to osteoarthritis. As cartilage covering the bones continues to degenerate over time, you develop more pain, inflammation, and increasingly limited movement.
When osteoarthritis reaches an advanced stage, your only treatment option is a total joint replacement. During replacement surgery, Dr. Sidhu removes all the damaged cartilage and bone, and securely attaches metal replacements.
