Joint Replacement

As we age, our joints undergo natural “wear and tear.” Some patients develop arthritis which is more severe "wear and tear" that can result in pain, prevent them from participating in the activities we enjoy.
Our experienced staff will accurately diagnose your joint problem and develop a plan of care that fits your needs. We make every attempt to offer non-surgical treatment when appropriate before considering surgery. If surgery does become necessary, our experienced surgeons have the ability to replace all major joints, including hips, knees and shoulders. We will compassionately and efficiently guide you through the entire process of joint replacement surgery, beginning with diagnosis and not ending until you have returned to your desired lifestyle.
The goal of joint replacement surgery is to relieve pain and restore the ability to work, care for oneself and loved ones or participate in recreational activities. Our comprehensive program is designed to return you to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible.  In addition, we will keep you involved in your treatment every step of the way because we believe that you play the most important role in achieving a successful recovery.
Our experienced Joint Replacement team includes physicians, physician's assistants, patient care assistants, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, and many others who specialize in the care of the Joint Replacement patient. Our Joint Care Team will help you plan your individual treatment program and act as your guide. Before your surgery, you will be asked to attend a preoperative class that will prepare you for the process and answer any questions you may have. Our team looks forward to helping you achieve better mobility and return to enjoying your daily life.
