What are the benefits of joint replacement surgery?

Relief from pain is a key benefit but other benefits include:

  • increased mobility and, with it, improved quality of life – you can get back to doing the things you used to love
  • reduced need for pain medications
  • improved gait (the way you walk)
  • improved joint stability, which reduces your risk of falls and injury
  • less reliance on other people or aids to enjoy daily life.
