As you age, hips, knees, and shoulders aren’t what they used to be. Here at the Citrus Orthopaedic and Joint Institute our surgeons specialize in getting your joints back on track. This option is usually one that comes after all other medical options are explored.
If you suffer from Arthritis, avascular necrosis, dislocation, or dysplasia, a total joint replacement may be the best option for you. During this surgery one of our orthopaedic surgeons will remove the damaged joint. They will replace your old joint with a new one that is made of high grade materials including titatinuim, durable cross-linked plastics, and/or ceramics. Your new joint will act just as your old one did, but without the pain and discomfort you had before. Usually, your new joint will last and continue to work in your body for over 15 years.
Once your surgery is complete our specialists can begin to guide you through the process of physical therapy. If all goes according to plan your new joint will significantly improve your activity level and quality of life. Many patients after surgery wish they had not waited so long to have it done. Make an appointment with one of our specialists today, if you think you could benefit from total joint replacement. Let us help you get out there and live again!
