Total Joint (Knee & Hip)

If you’re dealing with joint pain, you know how drastically it can affect your daily life. Fortunately, there are ways to find relief so you can get back to the activities you once enjoyed.

If you’ve been dealing with joint pain and non-surgical methods have not been effective in relieving your pain, joint replacement may be an option. Joint replacement is a common surgical procedure that involves removing the damaged portion of the joint and replacing it with a prosthetic. While this procedure is fairly straightforward, it’s best to understand everything that will be involved so you’re thoroughly prepared for the process.
