If you are experiencing pain and think it might be time for a new joint, turn to the joint replacement surgeons at Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates.
Joint damage can develop from normal wear and tear as you age. Pain can also develop in joints that have been damaged from injury earlier in life, such as an old high school sports injury. Osteoarthritis pain is caused by bone-on-bone rubbing as cartilage wears away inside the joint. For many people, the only solution is joint replacement surgery (arthroplasty).
The decision to have a joint replacement procedure is not an easy one. It typically comes only after all nonsurgical options have been exhausted. When considering joint replacement surgery, the orthopedic surgeon will take into account various factors such as your age, health profile, and desired activity level.
When only some of the joint is damaged, a surgeon may be able to repair or replace just the damaged parts. When the entire joint is damaged, a total joint replacement is performed. To replace a hip or knee joint, a surgeon removes the diseased or damaged parts and inserts artificial parts, called prostheses or implants.
We perform arthroplasty (joint replacement) for the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle using the latest, most advanced surgical techniques.
