Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint Replacement Surgery

Taking a walk, getting in and out of a chair, playing sports, driving a car – these and countless other activities may be difficult and painful if you are experiencing chronic joint pain.

Joint replacement surgery is a common, successful treatment option for people living with pain and discomfort caused by arthritis, injury or other joint-related conditions. Joint replacement involves implanting a mechanical joint and removing damaged bone and cartilage.  Through new surgical techniques and implants, pain and recovery time have been significantly reduced.

Before considering joint replacement surgery, our Norton Orthopedic Care specialists offer a treatment plan consisting of medications, physical therapy and/or other treatment options. Surgery may be recommended only when you are experiencing severe pain and loss of function or when other treatments are no longer effective.
