Total Knee Replacement
First performed in 1968, total knee replacement is now one of the most successful procedures in medicine. Today, you and your doctor can choose from a variety of designs that factor in age, weight, and activity level.
Herniated discs are one of the most common causes of back pain, especially pain that radiates from the back into another part of the body. Most are caused by age-related disc degeneration, but they can also be caused by repetitive stress.
Total Shoulder Replacement
For patients tired of living with shoulder pain and stiffness, total shoulder replacement can offer relief. The procedure is highly effective in treating symptoms caused by arthritis, particularly in patients whose rotator cuffs are still intact.
Total Hip Replacement
If you suffer from a painful hip caused by arthritis, a total hip replacement could be a life-changer. The success rate for this surgery is high, with greater than 95% of patients experiencing pain relief.
Total Ankle Replacement
As medical technologies have evolved, total ankle replacement has become a viable option for those looking to relieve ankle stiffness and pain. For eligible candidates, the procedure is a safe and successful way to return to an active lifestyle.
Partial Knee Resurfacing
If arthritis is confined to a single part of your knee, partial knee resurfacing may be the best treatment option for you. The procedure is designed to treat damage limited to one part of the joint, while leaving the healthy portion of the knee intact.
Physical Therapy After Surgery
It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the best ways to recover from orthopedic surgery is to get moving. Working closely with a physical therapist will help your body heal safely and ensure you don’t wind up back in the hospital.
