Arthrodesis (Fusion)

Arthrodesis refers to the fusing of a joint. In this process, the diseased cartilage is removed, the bone ends are cut off, and the two bone ends are fused into one solid bone with metal internal fixation. There is no further motion in the joint, but importantly, there is also no further pain.
