Am I a candidate for joint replacement?
The goal of joint replacement surgery is to help relieve pain and restore function and movement to the affected area. Highlands Regional provides state-of-the art surgical procedures to ensure this goal becomes a reality. The first step is to determine if you are a candidate for joint replacement surgery.
You may be a candidate for joint replacement surgery if:
- You have moderate to severe arthritis in your joint, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or post-traumatic arthritis
- Pain in your joint is present even when resting, or interferes with sleep
- You have stiffness or reduced range of motion during normal activities
- Non-surgical treatments, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections or physical therapy have failed to provide relief
