Total Joint Replacement
When joint pain begins to affect your quality of life -- limiting the things you are able to do -- and other treatment options have failed, total joint replacement may be a viable option for you.
When medication, therapy, injections, and other treatments are no longer effective, and the joint has been damaged by overuse or arthritis, a total joint replacement may relieve joint pain.
More than 435,000 total knee and hip replacement surgeries are performed each year, according to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases. Today, total joint replacement has become a standard in medical treatment and modern technology has created new joints that will last for 20 years or more.
Physicians on staff with Sierra Surgery Hospital have expertise in this important area of orthopedics.
