If you are considering joint replacement surgery, you've probably got a lot of questions. Am I too young for joint replacement surgery? How long before I can get back to work?
This means joint replacement surgery is now a viable option for patients in their late 40s and early 50s who are tired of the pain and limitations caused by injury, arthritis or just wear and tear on their joints.
Learn more about when to get joint replacement surgery in this podcast from orthopedic surgeon Dr. Adam Rothenberg:
You'll want both a surgeon and an operating room team who are experienced in the minimally invasive and computer-navigation techniques.
EvergreenHealth has been the area leader in minimally invasive joint replacement. In fact, our surgeons helped to develop many of the techniques and the miniaturized instruments used in the surgeries. We pride ourselves in the large percentage of our joint replacement surgeries that are performed using minimally invasive techniques.
The advantage of minimally invasive surgery for the patient is less pain, less blood loss, less scarring and less risk of infection, meaning a faster recovery.
Computer-navigation results in a better fit for your new joint, meaning it will last longer.
