replacement surgery has revolutionized the quality of life for many patients with chronic joint problems.
it leads to significant reduction of pain and improvement and mobility in the large maturity of patients undergoing surgery.
nowadays if you get the joint surgery done in a good Centre with an experienced doctor experience (meaning a doctor who does a lot of surgeries.) then the likelihood of complications of current is around<5%.
however I would also suggest that your mother should meet a Rheumatologist as he or she will be able to assist and make sure that your mother does not have inflammatory Arthritis.
Inflammatory Arthritis reduces the chances of success of surgery substantially and hence a Visit with a Rheumatologist is probably appropriate before finalizing the decision to go ahead with surgery.

This could be due to arthritis related to old age, where the cartilage/ cushion between the bones wear off and the bones rub against each other, causing the pain.
In knee replacement, we remove the pain causing portion of the bone and replace it with metal parts with an artificial cushion in between. Knee replacement when performed well is a highly successful procedure. Over 1 million procedures are performed every year in the US alone.
