Fellowship-Trained Joint Surgeons Treating Active Individuals in Freehold, NJ
The joint surgeons at New Jersey Joints in Freehold, NJ, are board-certified, fellowship-trained, and highly experienced in using the latest minimally invasive and computer-assisted techniques. With a firm commitment to providing personalized orthopedic care, we take an evidence-based approach to treatment and tailor each plan to the specific needs of the patient.
For the right candidate, a knee, hip, or shoulder replacement can be a life-changing procedure. However, joint replacement is not appropriate for every person who is experiencing severe pain or limited mobility. Before recommending surgery, the joint surgeons at New Jersey Joints in Freehold fully educate prospective patients on all of their options, both nonsurgical and surgical, to help them make the best possible treatment decisions.
In general, our joint surgeons may recommend a joint replacement procedure for someone who is experiencing:
- Severe pain and stiffness that limits mobility and makes it difficult to perform daily tasks, such as walking, climbing stairs, and standing up from a seated position
- Insufficient relief from conservative treatments like medications and walking aids
- Progressive bone damage
- Poor quality of life due to joint problems
For patients who elect surgery, the joint surgeons at New Jersey Joints begin the joint replacement process long before entering an operating room. We meet with each patient face to face to fully explain the recommended procedure, as well as its potential risks, benefits, and results. We also provide detailed instructions on what a patient will need to do before and after surgery in order to help ensure the best possible outcome.
After a joint replacement procedure, physical therapy is essential for strengthening the new joint and enhancing the surgical result. Toward that end, the certified physical therapists on our in-house team work closely with both our patients and our joint surgeons. In this way, we have helped many joint replacement patients regain their joint strength and return to the activities they enjoy as quickly and safely as possible.
