What about infection?
It is known that patients with joint replacements who are having invasive procedures performed or who have other infections are at increased risk of the infection spreading to their prosthetic joint. Antibiotic prophylaxis may be considered for those patients who are at risk. Most recent recommendations are that antibiotics be employed on the day of the procedure for such things as dental work and other more invasive procedures. This should be done for at least the first two years following implantation of your new joint. Some believe that it should be done indefinitely. I will discuss with you the best approach for your particular situation.
