Is joint pain keeping you up at night?
Have you been diagnosed with arthritis in one or more of your joints?
Are you experiencing difficulty standing, exercising, or participating in regular daily activities?
An average of 500,000 people undergo total joint replacement surgery every year. Candidates for joint replacement are individuals with chronic joint pain, typically from arthritis. When preventative and restorative treatment for arthritis fails, and the pain interferes with daily activities such as exercise, leisure, and work, it may be an appropriate time for a joint replacement. The surgery aims to relieve pain, restore your independence and help you return to work and other daily activities.
There are many different types of arthritis, the disease of wear and tear of the joint. Cartilage serves as a cushion and allows for a smooth range of motion. Eventually, cartilage wears down to the bone. Rubbing of bone against bone causes discomfort, swelling and stiffness. Speak to one of our orthopedic specialists if joint replacement is right for you.
