The Experts of Total Joint Replacement
We help you get back to doing the things you love most
Whether you run a marathon or simply drive your car, joints are what keep the human body moving. But many people experience chronic joint pain brought on by inflammation, a fracture, or other musculoskeletal disorders that involve bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves.
Some of the more common causes of chronic joint pain include the following:
- The normal aging processes which cause wear and tear on joint linings and cartilage.
- Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that over time wears away the synovial membrane.
- Excess body weight which can cause stress on joints and wear away the joint lining and cartilage.
- Injury or trauma from a fall or accident.
- Severe infections that attack the joints.
You may have tried a number of ways to treat your symptoms, such as injections, medication or physical therapy. If you’ve tried these methods and are still not seeing a change in your pain or discomfort, we encourage you to make an appointment with a specialist at Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Clinic to discuss a possible joint replacement.
Thanks to new technology, implants last longer today because they are modular, meaning our specialists can go in and replace the plastic pad for hips and knees after 20 years or more with a relatively simple operation.
Quality of life is the bottom line in deciding whether to have a joint replacement. If your quality of life is deteriorating or if you’re giving up the things you enjoy most – then it may be time for a hip or knee replacement.
Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center joint specialists have the experience and expertise to treat your hip or knee condition. Our specialists will discuss all the options available — surgical and nonsurgical.
