The Surgeon Said I had Osteoarthritis


Severe cases of osteoarthritis might need surgery to replace or repair damaged joints. Surgical options include:

* Arthroscopic surgery to trim torn and damaged cartilage
* Changing the alignment of a bone to relieve stress on the bone or joint (osteotomy)
* Surgical fusion of bones, usually in the spine (arthrodesis)
* Total or partial replacement of the damaged joint with an artificial joint (knee arthroplasty, hip arthroplasty)"
