The wear and tear of daily activity, as well as occasional abuse, may lead to painful, stiff joints. This pain may be life-changing because it hinders people's ability to participate in the daily activities they enjoy. The most common cause of chronic joint pain is arthritis, which can be caused by disease, overuse or serious injury or fracture.
Surgery is not the preferred option for everyone with joint problems. Severity of the injury, level of pain, age and general health may all affect the decision whether surgery or non-invasive treatment is preferred. Our physicians work collaboratively with patients to make the best decision for each patient.
If surgery is the preferred option, our nationally-recognized orthopaedic surgeons have the experience to replace all major joints, including:
