Learn what you may see radiographically with joint replacement, and be amazed at the amazing medical progress made in this dynamic field. Is the biomechanical man on the horizon? Today replacement parts for the human body are reality. Learn how it’s possible to repair and replace worn out cartilage and joints. This story of the development, science, pathology involved, and beneficial outcomes of joint replacement surgery is an exciting insight into biomechanics and the future of medicine. Medicine today can provide “replacement” parts and although they do not make us super human, they provide a richer and pain free life. You will learn in this lesson about total joint replacement (arthroplasty), which is a common and very successful surgery.
