This retrospective analysis examines the outcome of total joint arthroplasty for severe arthritis in patients with synovial chondromatosis. All 11 patients treated with total hip arthroplasty (n = 7) or total knee arthroplasty (n = 4) returned for follow-up at a mean of 10.8 years after surgery. Pain and functional scores improved significantly in all patients. Knee range of motion improved in all patients. Synovial chondromatosis recurred in 1 knee (25%) and 1 hip (14%). Total joint arthroplasty is a valuable treatment option for these patients with predictable improvement in pain and function. Knee range of motion is likely to improve but may be less than expected for primary total knee arthroplasty. Patients remain at risk for recurrence.
