Total joint replacement, also known as arthroplasty, is a treatment option when less invasive procedures do not relieve severe joint pain. At Specialty Orthopaedics, our surgeons specialize in total and partial joint replacement. We use the newest technology and state-of-the-art facilities to provide less invasive, faster recovery techniques.
Why is joint replacement necessary?
Our goal is to help you resume your daily activities as quickly as possible. With total joint replacement, the damaged bones and cartilage are replaced with metal and plastic surfaces that are shaped to restore movement and function. We want you to experience a vast improvement in your range of motion within a matter of weeks.
What is the recovery process?
In general, our surgeons will encourage you to use your “new” joint shortly after the operation. Most patients will experience temporary pain because the muscles are weak and the tissues are healing, but it will end in a few weeks or months. Our team will develop a personalized exercise program for you after surgery and the motion of your joint will begin to improve in as little as 6 weeks.
