Alzheimer and other injuries to the bones are increasingly common as the years roll by. When we are seniors, our joints begin to hurt.
There are a few reasons to consider joint replacement surgery. The most common reason is pain relief. During a hip or knee replacement, a surgeon removes the painful, damaged
surfaces of the joint and replaces them with plastic or metal implants.
This gets rid of the pain, because the diseased cartilage and bone are
no longer there.
However, surgeries always come with risk. Elders are more likely to suffer complications in post surgery recovery than their younger counterparts. Also, implants may not always be successful.
