Total Joint Replacement Surgery
Joint Replacement Surgery in Watertown, NY
Orthopedic surgeons have been performing joint replacement surgery since the early 1900s. The procedure consists of removing a damaged joint and replacing it with a new one. Over time, artificial joints have come closer and closer to performing and feeling like the real thing. Scientists continue to invent new designs and find better materials that can improve the function and durability of an artificial joint. If you have joint damage like arthritis, joint replacement surgery can become necessary when other less invasive and non-surgical options have failed to relieve pain. Joint procedures routinely performed by North Country Orthopaedic Group’s joint replacement specialists include:
- Reverse Shoulder Replacement
- Total Shoulder Replacement
- Total Hip Replacement / Arthroplasty
- Hemi-Arthroplasty of the Hip
- Knee Revision / Osteotomy
- Partial Knee Replacement
- Total Knee Replacement / Arthroplasty
Talk with a board-certified orthopedic surgeon in Watertown, New York about your options, and be sure to express your goals for recovery. If you are young and active and have no other option than to replace the joint, your doctor may use a different procedure than he would for an older, sedentary patient. To schedule an evaluation of your joint pain, contact North Country Orthopaedic Group at (315) 782-1650 or use our online appointment request form.
