Here's another common question that comes into my office on a regular basis. "I have a new knee (or hip) replacement, but I still have pain. Why?"
Recent research out of Rutgers University has found that microparticles or "debris" from artificial joints can trigger an immune system response around the surgical site. Swelling and pain can be the result. Over time, this chronic inflammation can cause tissue damage that eventually wears out the implanted joint.
