Joint replacement surgery
is one of the most common and helpful surgeries available to people with joint pain or joint disease. Crisp Regional Hospital diagnoses joint problems in patients and can help form a plan for each patient about the best options for treatment.
If surgery is recommended, the team at Crisp Regional hospital will walk through the whole process with patients from diagnoses to recovery, ensuring patients have the best experience and are able to resume their healthy, active lives post-surgery.
When is replacement surgery needed?
You may be eligible for joint replacement surgery if you have
Joint disease such as arthritis
Trauma or injury to a joint
Unusual bone growth or bone deformity
Why it’s important
Joint replacement surgery is sometimes necessary in order to prevent further injury or damage to a joint that is already experiencing problems.
Often, joint replacement surgery allows people to regain mobility and functionality in a joint.
Crisp Regional Hospital will continue to oversee your care and recovery after surgery. Physical therapy
is often recommended after joint replacement surgery, and with Crisp Regional’s on-site physical therapy center, you will be able to receive the care you need to make a speedy recovery.
