We Do

Joint Replacement

Normal activities such as walking, golfing, tennis, gardening, and playing with children are just a dream to many people suffering from arthritis, musculo-skeletal disease, or joint injury. For these patients, joint replacement, such as hip replacement, knee replacement or shoulder replacement,  may be the only alternative to chronic and debilitating pain. These operations are performed when other measures have failed to help patients relieve their pain and restore mobility.

Before surgery is recommended, other more conservative measures should be tried, such as weight loss, anti-inflammatory medication, orthotics, steroid injections, and physical therapy. If, despite these efforts, functional limitations persist, the physicians at SportsMed can help restore a more active, pain-free, and independent lifestyle.
