Your hips and knees bear the burden of carrying your entire weight - every step, every day. These joints are put through rigors of deep bends, long walks, short stops and sharp turns.

Injury or advanced bone or joint disease usually necessitates total joint replacement surgery. In either case, weight bearing surface joints become rough as the cartilage wears away, leaving bone grinding against bone with each step. The result is a joint that no longer works properly, while movement becomes difficult and painful, and eventually almost impossible.

Fortunately, most of us will never know a severe problem with our legs. But for those who will, medical technology and the Center for joint Surgery at Atlantic General Hospital hold the promise of pain-free, lasting mobility.
