Arthritis or injury can damage a joint to the point of needing replacement. The joints that are most often affected include the shoulders, knees, and hips. Other joints can also be replaced, if needed, including the ankle, wrist, or elbow. Once replaced, your new joint will function just like a natural joint, allowing for a full range of motion and mobility.
During joint replacement surgery, damaged cartilage tissue is removed and a prosthetic joint is put in. The materials used in joint replacement can be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic.
After recovery from surgery, you will attend physical therapy to help strengthen your muscles, restore stability, and increase flexibility. Our treatment approach provides exceptional care from start to finish so you can live a better quality of life with your new joint.
