Caption

Knuckle joint replacement surgery. Close-up of the closed incisions in a patient's hand after surgery to replace two arthritic knuckle joints with a prosthetic implant. The head of the metacarpals (hand bones) and phalanges (finger bones) were replaced with a pyrocarbon implant. Here, a surgeon is injecting a local anaesthetic around the wound to reduce the pain felt after the operation.
