Consult With a Joint Surgeon at New Jersey Joints in Freehold, NJ
At New Jersey Joints, every joint surgeon is board certified, fellowship trained, and highly experienced in performing hip, knee, or shoulder replacement using the latest minimally invasive techniques. Since our founding in 2007, athletes and other active individuals in the Freehold, NJ, area have been entrusting their care to our joint specialists. We take an evidence-based approach to treatment and tailor each plan to a patient’s unique needs.
For certain patients, a hip, knee, or shoulder replacement can be a life-changing event. However, it’s important to understand that joint replacement is not right for everyone. Surgery is generally considered only as a last resort, mainly because nonsurgical treatments can be very effective for most people.
During a personal consultation with a joint surgeon at New Jersey Joints in Freehold, a patient can explore all of his or her treatment options – both nonsurgical and surgical. In general, a joint surgeon may recommend surgery if a patient is experiencing:
- Very severe, persistent pain or stiffness that interferes with daily activities, such as walking and climbing stairs
- Poor quality of life due to chronic joint pain
- Bone damage caused by osteoarthritis or an injury
- Inadequate relief from conservative treatments like medications, injections, and walking aids
If a patient decides to proceed with a joint replacement procedure, the process at New Jersey Joints will start long before a joint surgeon performs the surgery. We’ll begin by fully educating the patient, helping him or her to understand the recommended procedure and its possible risks, benefits, and likely result. The joint surgeon will also carefully explain what the patient should do both before and after surgery to help ensure the best possible outcome. After having surgery, the patient will likely participate in a customized physical therapy program designed to strengthen the new joint and enhance the surgical result. The on-site team of experienced rehabilitation specialists at New Jersey Joints has helped many patients rebuild their joint strength following surgery and return to the activities they enjoy.
