Joint replacement is one of the great orthopedic surgical advances of the last century. This procedure involves replacing a damaged or arthritic joint with an artificial one. The most common reason for performing a total joint replacement is to relieve the pain and disability caused by severe osteoarthritis. The problem results from a gradual break down of cartilage, occurring most often in the hips, spine, knees, toes and fingers.
By treating joint conditions and diseases and performing reconstructive and restorative surgery, the physicians help patients regain their strength and mobility, returning them to a normal, active lifestyle.
If you would like your symptoms diagnosed or evaluated, or would like to see if you are a candidate for joint replacement, contact one of our physicians at a location near you.
