Joint Restoration

During a joint restoration procedure (also called joint resurfacing), a surgeon reshapes and smooths the existing bone, removes damaged cartilage and then matches the joint surface with a new smooth implant that keeps the patient’s joint intact. In some instances, this procedure is preferred over a joint replacement, because it allows more bone and tissue to be preserved. It may be ideal for patients who need help alleviating pain and increasing mobility but have strong bones and don’t need total joint replacement yet.
