Thinking About Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint Replacement Surgery Consultation

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is the wear, tear, or breakdown of cartilage that surrounds your joint. This can occur as a result of age, genetics, or significant injury. As the cartilage wears away the spacing between the bones will decrease until bone-on-bone rubbing occurs. This rubbing can cause significant swelling or pain.

What are my treatment options?

We offer several non-operative and operative treatment options. For arthritis of the knee or hip we begin treatments more conservatively with treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications, ice/heat, physical therapy or home exercise programs, bracing, or injections of cortisone or stem cells. These options may help at improving your pain but will not reverse the effects of arthritis. If our non-operative treatment options are no longer working, you may be considered a candidate for total joint replacement surgery
