Will I Need Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint replacement is a life-changing decision, often the last resort when less invasive treatments fail to alleviate severe pain and mobility problems. While hip and knee replacements are most common, our expertise extends to ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow replacements.

What Are The Causes of Joint Replacement Surgery?

Persistent Joint Pain: Often a result of severe arthritis, chronic pain is the primary reason patients opt for joint replacement.

Injuries and Fractures: Previous injuries can lead to joint deterioration, necessitating surgical intervention.

Arthritis-Related Joint Damage: Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and similar conditions frequently lead to joint replacements.

Osteoarthritis: This wear-and-tear arthritis is a prevalent cause of knee and hip replacements.

Osteoporosis (Brittle Bone Disease): Causes fragility fractures that may require hip replacement.

Degeneration from Wear and Tear: Regular activities, occupational demands, sports, or aging can contribute to joint degeneration.

How Will I Know If I Need Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint replacement may become a necessity when you experience relentless joint pain and functional limitations despite trying medications, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes. It’s about restoring your ability to enjoy life, perform daily tasks, and engage in your favorite activities without debilitating pain.

What Can I Expect Recovering From Joint Replacement Surgery?

Recovering from joint replacement surgery is a journey. Most patients report a dramatic reduction in pain and a significant improvement in their ability to perform everyday activities. Our post-operative care includes an extensive rehabilitation program to help you regain strength, mobility, and confidence in using your new joint.

Your recovery time will depend on the type and placement of the replacement joint.
