Considering Joint Replacement Surgery

Hip, knee, or shoulder joint replacement surgery may be considered when joint pain limits your everyday activities such as walking and bending, sitting or standing for long periods, or stiffness in your leg that limits your ability to lift or move your limb. Joint replacements are artificial joints that are designed to replace the damaged or diseased areas of cartilage in order to mimic the function of a healthy human joint.

What to Expect at your appointment:

  • A thorough evaluation and discussion of your specific needs
  • Review of your X-rays and any additional records
  • An in-depth conversation covering surgical and non-surgical treatment options
  • Customized treatment plan to get you back to your active lifestyle
  • Close follow-up to monitor your recovery and rehabilitation
