Residents of Casper, Wyoming, who are living with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, cartilage degeneration, or a congenital deformity may need extra attention to relieve their discomfort, particularly when medications and physical therapy aren’t enough to do the trick. If that’s the case for you, it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery at Premier Bone & Joint Centers.

What Joint Replacement Surgery Entails
Both knee and hip replacements involve securing an implant to the weight-bearing sides of the joint. Post-surgery, you may need to use a walker to or cane, but eventually the bone will grow over the implant, allowing you to move freely like you could in the past. Joint replacement is a common procedure with a high success rate, so don’t be afraid to pursue this option if you’re finding it unbearable to live with your injury or condition.
