Is joint replacement surgery for me?

Every year, roughly half a million people in the U.S. decide to undergo joint replacement surgery to treat chronic pain. Though surgery isn’t always the best option for everyone, it can be an excellent way to improve mobility and quality of life. You may want to consider joint replacement surgery if you:

  • Have severe joint pain or stiffness, and it has had a serious impact
  • Are in good health besides your joint pain
  • Can commit to maintaining a rehabilitative regimen
  • Are seeking improved comfort and function, rather than a complete cure
