Hand Joint Replacement Surgery Perth
Hand joint replacement surgery involves the removal of destroyed cartilage from affected joint/s in the body, helping to relieve ongoing pain from arthritis.
Following the removal of the worn cartilage, the affected joint will be resurfaced with a replacement implant that functions just like a normal joint. Replacement joints have a longevity of up to 20 years or more and can provide much-needed relief from ongoing pain.
Why people choose joint replacement surgery:
- Overcome ongoing and debilitating pain
- Failure of non-surgical treatments
- Improve mobility
Dr Stewart will work closely with you to develop a surgical plan and treatment options to offer you life changing relief from your symptoms. To book an appointment or to find out more, contact our team today.
Taking care of yourself after surgery
The hands are highly pain-sensitive, and pain may be severe enough to require analgesics. To reduce movements and allow the repairs to hold firmly, you may need to wear a splint. Rehabilitation is also necessary to achieve maximal use of your hands after the procedure.
Success rates depend on the type of deformity, and complete recovery may take months to years.
