Joint Replacement Surgery Performed at New Jersey Joints Near Jackson, NJ
While generally viewed as a last resort treatment, joint replacement surgery may be the best option for addressing debilitating pain, stiffness, or swelling in a hip, knee, or shoulder. Most often, joint damage occurs due to age-related degeneration (arthritis), although it can also result from a traumatic injury. If joint problems are affecting your quality of life, a board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeon at New Jersey Joints, which is located near Jackson, NJ, can help you determine if joint replacement surgery is right for you.
After reviewing your symptoms, examining your painful joint, and discussing your lifestyle, a physician at New Jersey Joints may advise you to try exercise, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, or a walking aid, such as a brace or cane, before considering a joint replacement procedure. Depending on the nature and extent of your joint damage, your physician may also prescribe hyaluronic acid injections, which can be very effective for some patients.
