Lifespan of a New Joint

 

Joint replacement_social

It is difficult to predict how long an artificial joint will last. A person’s age, activity level, and weight influence the lifespan and durability of a new joint. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, more than 90% of modern total knee replacements are still functioning well 15 years after the surgery. Many artificial knees still work after 20 years.

Two studies published in The Lancet medical journal last year, pooled registry data that showed 82% of total knee replacements and roughly 58% of hip replacements will last 25 years.

The specially-trained orthopedic surgeons at Lakeland are here to help relieve your pain, restore your mobility and independence, and get you back to work and other normal activities.
