THE GOAL OF TOTAL JOINT REPLACEMENT IS TO HELP YOU RECLAIM YOUR ACTIVE LIFESTYLE.
At Forsyth, experienced surgeons use a minimally invasive approach that offers reduced recovery time as well as less pain.
Conditions that can be treated by joint replacementArthritis, in its various forms, is the most common reason for joint replacement because the disease attacks and damages the joint's cartilage. Other conditions that may call for joint replacement include hip fractures and vascular degeneration.
potential benefitsA diseased or damaged joint creates a downward cycle. The pain of trying to move the joint results in less use, which in turn weakens the muscles that move the joint. By replacing the affected hip or knee joint with a new one, the patient's range of motion can be enhanced – and less pain will result in more joint use that will gradually strengthen the surrounding muscles.
