Frequently Asked Questions

Joint replacement surgery is a procedure in which a damaged or worn-out joint is removed and replaced with a prosthetic implant. The goal of joint replacement is to alleviate pain, restore function, and improve quality of life for patients with advanced joint conditions.

The most common joints replaced are the hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle. These joints are often affected by conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic injuries.

Candidates for joint replacement surgery typically have severe joint pain and limited mobility that interferes with daily activities and quality of life. Non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy and medications, should be tried first before considering joint replacement.

The duration of joint replacement surgery varies depending on the specific joint being replaced and the complexity of the procedure. In general, most joint replacement surgeries take between 1 to 3 hours.

Recovery time after joint replacement surgery varies depending on the individual and the specific joint replaced. In general, patients can expect to spend several days in the hospital followed by several weeks of physical therapy. Full recovery and return to normal activities may take several months.

As with any surgical procedure, joint replacement surgery carries certain risks, including infection, blood clots, nerve damage, and implant failure. However, these risks are relatively low, and our team takes every precaution to minimize them.

Modern joint replacements are designed to last for many years, with some lasting up to 20 years or more. However, the longevity of a joint replacement depends on factors such as the patient’s age, weight, activity level, and overall health.

During the recovery process, you will work closely with our team of physical therapists to regain strength, flexibility, and function in the replaced joint. You may need to use assistive devices such as a walker or cane initially, and will likely need to make some temporary modifications to your home environment to ensure safety and comfort. Our team will provide detailed instructions and guidance throughout the recovery process to ensure the best possible outcome.
