Knuckle hand pain osteoarthritis

Hi could anyone give me more input if possible, I am about to have a knuckle manipulation on Monday under G.A and steroid injection, yet I've been told I need a knuckle replacement, the consultant said he will do this first to give more time see if works, if not then refer to hand specialist, yet this is what I thought I was seeing, different feedback different Drs, it's all confusing, if anyone as had this I would appreciate feedback.
