Artificial Joint Center

What is an artificial joint?

When degenerative arthritis becomes severe, the knee joint loses function and the patient is unable to walk due to extreme pain. Artificial joint replacement is needed in this case. The damaged knee joint bone is removed, and an artificial joint made of special metals and plastic materials is inserted to complete the procedure. Bon Hospital aims for carrying out safe surgeries by conducting pretests, including x-rays, blood tests, urine tests, ECG, and blood pressure/diabetes tests in order to determine surgery suitability.
