Joint Replacement or Joint Arthroplasty is the most widely practised surgical option for arthritis all over the world and its application in India has risen significantly too. According to a recent data, the age of the patients suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis & Osteoarthritis who opt for joint replacement, ranges from 22 to 74 years. Rheumatoid arthritis is the major cause of arthritis among the younger population who might need joint replacement. The male-female distribution of patients is 25% and 75% respectively. It is estimated that over 1,20,000 joint replacements are done annually in India. Previously, joint replacements were done on the elderly patients and people were advised to delay the operation as much as possible but now with the availability of better implants & advanced procedures like Fast Track Computer Navigation has increased the acceptability of the procedure. At the same time, even for the older population, with more efficient procedures & skilful surgeon practices, anyone can get their joints replaced.
