When more conservative methods of treating pain and loss of motion prove ineffective, reconstruction or replacement of the knee, hip or other joints may offer the best hope for long-term improvement. Dramatic advances in the procedures and devices used to reconstruct and replace joints can bring remarkable relief from chronic pain and disability. Our surgeons have access to the latest technology. This access and our sugeons’ expertise ensure that you will receive the highest quality care possible.
Effective joint reconstruction or replacement requires a combination of surgical skill and collaboration among a variety of specialists throughout the course of treatment. Rehabilitation begins soon after your surgery. While still in the hospital, you will participate in physical therapy and exercise, practice safely transferring to and from bed, and walk short distances. After discharge, you will continue with physical therapy and a home exercise program focused on motion and strength.
