While joint replacement is a major surgery, it can help improve your quality of life as well as get you back to enjoying the activities you love.

You may be ready for a joint replacement procedure if you’re experiencing the following signs:

  • Joint pain that keeps you awake or wakes you up at night.
  • Your joint pain that stops you from participating in activities you enjoy, such as exercising, walking, shopping or traveling.
  • Over time you have tried non-operative treatments, but you still have pain.

You and your doctor may also consider several other factors, such as your age and overall health, as well as your expectations after surgery when determining whether a joint replacement procedure is the right choice for you.

To determine whether or not you’re ready for a joint replacement procedure, schedule an appointment with one of our experts at EmergeOrtho: Blue Ridge Region by calling (828) 537-4032 or request an appointment online.
