Arthroplasty is a conventional orthopedic process.

Wear and tear of joint ligaments either from an injury or a result of arthritis are among the leading causes of musculoskeletal problems that require arthroplasty. Patients in need of this service undergo an extensive examination process to ascertain the extent of the damage to the affected joint before the creation of a treatment plan. An artificial joint known as prostheses replaces the affected part through a surgical process.
