Our Total Joint Program has been developed to provide a completely patient-focused experience. This means that members of our Total Joint Team will be with you every step of the way to insure your surgery and recovery is a complete success.

Is it time for surgery?

You may be wondering if it’s time to speak with your doctor about the pain you’re feeling in your hip(s), knees or other joints. Well, if you can answer "yes" to the following questions, you just may be ready to learn more about our Total Joint Program:

  • Is it painful to perform everyday activities?
  • Does the pain interfere with your sleep?
  • Does your affected joint hurt one or more days per week?
  • Are pain medications no longer working?
  • Is joint pain limiting your participation in activities you love?

What Is Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint replacement surgery is done by removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one. There are many reasons why a joint is damaged, but the most common one is known as “wear and tear” arthritis. When the protective cushion of cartilage covering the ends of bones breaks down and wears away, it causes irritation, stiffness and pain.

When the pain can no longer be managed by medication and is so severe as to drastically limit your activity, it then becomes time to consider seeing an orthopedic (pronounced or-tho-PEE-dik) surgeon. Replacing a joint can relieve pain and help you move and feel better. Studies have shown that hip and knee joints are replaced most often.
