Orthopaedic Joint Surgeon Seeing Patients in Freehold, NJ
Each orthopaedic joint surgeon at New Jersey Joints is board certified and fellowship trained in joint replacement surgery using the latest minimally invasive and computer-assisted techniques. Since our founding in 2007, many people from Freehold, NJ, have entrusted their surgery to our experienced team. With a dedication to providing personalized patient care, we begin with an evidence-based approach and then customize each treatment plan to meet the specific needs of the individual.
For certain people, a shoulder, hip, knee, or ankle replacement can be a life-changing experience. Even so, we do not recommend joint replacement surgery for every patient who consults with us about a joint-related problem. During a personal consultation with an orthopaedic joint surgeon at New Jersey Joints in Freehold, an individual can expect to learn about all of his or her treatment options, which may include both nonsurgical and surgical approaches. In general, we view surgery as a last resort; however, we may suggest joint replacement for an individual who has:
- Persistent joint pain or stiffness that interferes with walking, climbing stairs, standing up from a seated position, or performing other daily activities
- Joint damage due to arthritic degeneration or a traumatic injury
- Been unable to find sufficient symptom relief with conservative treatment approaches, such as pain relievers, anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroid injections, and walking aids
At New Jersey Joints, the joint replacement process starts well before an orthopaedic joint surgeon performs the procedure. Because we believe well-informed patients make the best treatment decisions, we educate our patients, helping them to fully understand the joint replacement procedure we are recommending, along with its benefits, risks, and likely outcome. We also explain the important role of physical therapy in rebuilding joint strength after surgery, which can be facilitated by our outstanding team of rehabilitation specialists. These experienced professionals help many joint replacement patients return to activity as quickly and safely as possible.
