Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure where parts of a damaged or arthritic joint are removed and replaced with plastic, metal, or ceramic devices. These devices are called a prosthesis.
A prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a healthy, normal joint in the body. This is a procedure that can be performed on many joints, including the ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow. However, it is most commonly performed on the hip and knees.
Several conditions can cause joint pain and patients often consider total joint replacement as a last step after nonsurgical treatments, like medication and physical therapy, do not work.

Great staff and I enjoyed visiting with a reasonable and knowledgeable doctor. Don't let the storefront drive up spook you.
Very thorough exam, extremely nice physician. I highly recommend him.
Superb! Dr. Ikram was very thorough with the treatment plan and answered the many questions I had which ultimately put me at ease.
Dr K. Nimr is very professional. This is my first visit, everything is better than I expected.
I highly recommend Dr. Ikram! He was very professional and his staff were excellent. I hope to never see him again (who wants to break a bone again, right?)
