Concept of Joint Preservation Surgery
Joint preservation surgery is a term borne from the concept that prosthetic joints, although durable and associated with pain relief, do not have the same biological restorative capacity as native joints. Additionally, they are associated with a number of complications such as bone digestion secondary to particulate debris, fractures around implants, infections, and persistent pain. As a result, the goal of the joint preservation surgeon is to make every attempt to correct the anatomic abnormalities that are responsible for the patient's symptoms. The spectrum of joint preservation surgery includes minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy, articular cartilage restoration techniques, bone realignment procedures, and partial joint replacements.
