JOINT REPLACEMENT &
OAD's Joint Replacement Specialists are sought after
for their advanced training and skill in minimally invasive
surgery, computer-assisted surgical techniques, total joint
and partial joint replacement, and reconstructive surgery.
The effects of arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis,
degenerative joint disease, traumatic/acute injury or
long-term sports injuries can result in joint pain, chronic pain,
muscle weakening, joint dysfunction, cartilage damage/loss,
and possible disability.
If conservative treatments such as physical therapy,
cortisone injections, and/or medications are unsuccessful
in providing pain relief and restoring function, joint
reconstruction or joint replacement may be a beneficial option.
Reconstructive surgery preserves
and repairs damaged joints without replacing the damaged
joint with a prosthesis (artificial joint). Replacement
surgery involves replacing (i.e., implanting)
a total or partial joint with a prosthesis. Prosthetic
joints are highly-designed components made of very durable
metal (e.g., titanium) and plastic materials; each prosthetic
is uniquely shaped to restore joint function.
Thanks to incredible advancements in medical technology,
instrumentation, and surgical techniques, unbearable
joint pain shouldn't deprive you of a vital and active
