Total Joint Replacement and Reconstruction
Total Joint Replacement
Sometimes the best way to relieve pain and restore function to a joint is to replace all or part of it with a prosthesis (an artificial joint). Prostheses are intended to restore function to the joint and relieve pain associated with arthritis, other chronic conditions, or traumatic injury.
Adult Joint Reconstruction
Through overuse and aging, our joints often become weak and painful, limiting movement and affecting daily lives. Healthy joint ends are covered with a cushioning layer of cartilage that protects the bones from rubbing against each other and causing pain. The effects of time and excessive wear-and-tear causes this cartilage to slowly wear away and leave our joints weak and unprotected.
