Knee and Hip Replacement – Serving Hampton, IA

The aging process or trauma can impact the knee or hip joint, resulting in damage or wear and tear. If knee or hip problems cause severe pain and affect your quality of life, our orthopedic surgeons at Mason City Clinic may recommend a knee or hip replacement surgery. Our goal is to relieve your pain, restore your mobility, increase your independence, and enhance your quality of life. 

Knee and Hip Replacement Surgery – An Overview

Knee or hip replacement surgery involves replacing the damaged or diseased joint with an artificial one. Your new prosthesis will replicate the function of your natural joint, relieving your pain and restoring your mobility. 

Knee Replacement Surgery: Knee replacement surgery, also called knee arthroplasty, is recommended for individuals suffering from chronic knee pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility, usually resulting from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. The procedure involves carefully removing the damaged parts of your knee joints, such as the ends of your thigh bone or shin bone, and replacing them with artificial joint components made from metal alloys, high-grade plastics, or polymers. We may also resurface the kneecap (patella) if necessary. 

Hip Replacement Surgery: Also known as hip arthroplasty, hip replacement surgery offers an excellent solution for individuals suffering from severe hip pain and limited mobility due to conditions including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or hip fractures. It involves removing your damaged hip joint and replacing it with an artificial ball-and-socket joint. The ball component replaces the head of the thigh bone, while the socket component replaces the damaged socket in the pelvis.

What Are the Benefits of Knee and Hip Replacement Surgery?

  • Pain Relief: Chronic joint pain continues to be one of the most significant benefits of knee and hip replacement. 
  • Improved Mobility: Knee and hip replacement surgery can significantly enhance mobility, allowing you to regain your sense of freedom and enjoy your favorite activities once again. 
  • Long-Term Durability: Modern prosthetic knees and hips are highly durable, ensuring optimal function for many years and reducing the need for future surgeries or interventions. 

Promoting Recovery After Knee or Hip Replacement Surgery

Recovering after knee or hip replacement surgery requires patience and adherence to your rehabilitation plan. Physical therapy is integral to recovery. It helps to strengthen the muscles around your new joint and improve its range of motion. Make sure you follow our post-operative instructions to promote healing and ensure a successful recovery.
