Total knee replacement.
With total knee replacement, the knee itself is not replaced, but rather an artificial substitute for the cartilage and arthritic bone is inserted and placed on the end of the bones. A metal alloy prosthesis is placed on the femur and the tibia, with a plastic spacer placed between the metal and on the kneecap. This creates a new smooth cushion and a functioning joint.

The most common arthroscopic procedure is knee arthroscopy. Knee scopes are often 30 to 60 minute procedures and can be done under local or regional anesthesia. A knee scope is commonly used to remove or repair a torn meniscus, reconstruct torn ligaments such as an ACL or MCL, restore or replace cartilage, trim torn cartilage or remove inflamed tissue.

Total hip replacement.
A total hip replacement is an operation that removes the arthritic ball of the femur, as well as damaged cartilage from the hip socket. The ball is replaced with a metal ball that is fixed solidly inside the femur. The socket is replaced with a liner that is usually fixed inside a metal shell. View medical educational videos
Hip resurfacing preserves the femoral head and neck. The head is trimmed and resurfaced and the socket is lined with a metal shell. This creates a smooth functioning joint. This procedure is intended for active adults under age 60 who have good bone stock and need a hip replacement. View medical educational videos
Hip arthroscopy is a 1 ½ to 2 ½ hour surgery that requires two to four small incisions around the side of the hip. Using a small camera, the surgeon assesses the hip joint and looks for cartilage damage. The surgeon is able to shave off bone spurs, reconstruct or repair the labral, restore or replace cartilage, re-contour the ball and socket and remove loose chunks of debris that may be floating around the hip.
