Joint replacement surgery
The goal of joint replacement surgery is to relieve pain and restore function to the affected area. Our orthopedic surgeons perform advanced procedures using the latest technology to ensure this goal is met. You may be a candidate for joint replacement surgery if:
- Non-surgical treatments, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections and physical therapy, have failed to provide relief
- Pain in your joint is present even when resting, or pain affects your ability to fall or stay sleep
- You have moderate to severe arthritis in the joint
- You have stiffness or reduced range of motion during normal activities
Knee replacement surgery
Knee replacement is often recommended for patients with an arthritic knee joint, which is caused by the wearing down of cartilage. Knee replacement surgery can help restore range of motion, minimize pain and allow you to move more easily.
Hip replacement surgery
Cartilage in the hips can wear down due to age, an injury or a chronic disease. Hip replacement can restore range of motion and eliminate joint pain. However, surgery is only recommended after careful consideration and a thorough diagnosis of your joint problem.
Shoulder replacement surgery
Shoulder replacement involves replacing all or part of the shoulder joint with a prosthetic implant. This procedure can help relieve arthritis pain or repair severe joint damage.
