Get hip/knee replacement surgery while you're still healthy and can recover from all that surgery. Maybe even have them all done at once!

       Why not replace the entire endoskeleton with a carbonfiber composite endo/exo skeletal hybrid? I suppose you'd have to wait until you were fully grown, and the attractiveness of the idea had waned somewhat.

       Surely the lifetimes of these things will get longer. It becomes an optimization problem. I would say that soon after your present parts become too inferior to the spare parts, but before you are so old that recovery from surgery will be problematic, would be a good time.

       Within 30-50 years we'll be regenerating duplicate organs to replace your worn out ones. No more titaninum/teflon joints but your own flesh and blood.

       Even still, bromide, it would make sense to undergo "freshening" before the shock to your system would make it too difficult to undergo surgery.

       Matt Hoffman had all his bones replaced by titanium replacement bones? Creepy. No wonder he recovers from crashing his BMX so fast.
