Physicians Specializing in Joint Replacement
The Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center have highly trained and board certified physicians who are dedicated to managing and treating joint complications resulting from degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis, musculoskeletal disease or joint trauma.
For patients facing end stage arthritis, our team implements the latest advances in joint replacement surgery to restore and improve function for patients with severely degraded range of motion, mobility and pain.
Through the intervention of our Joint Replacement Specialists, pain free everyday activities like walking, tennis, gardening, golf and playing with children are restored to patients who have had to limit or cease these activities as a result of the chronic and debilitating effects of their conditions.
The joint replacement team at OSMS considers a patient's ability to tolerate the rigors of joint replacement. This includes assessing existing limitations, evaluating and diagnosing the degree and type of disease or degenerative process, evaluating the level of pain being experienced and conducting a thorough discussion with patients concerning the surgical options available and rehabilitation.
