Do you experience a grinding sensation when moving your hip or knee? Does medication fall short in relieving your pain? Your discomfort could be the result of an orthopedic condition like osteoarthritis, cartilage degeneration, rheumatoid arthritis, or a congenital deformity. At Premier Bone & Joint Centers, our board-certified, fellowship-trained specialists in Riverton, Wyoming, are experienced in providing accurate diagnosis and treatment to individuals with these conditions. In the event our non-invasive treatment options do not provide enough relief, we can perform joint replacement surgery as a final recourse.
What Does Joint Replacement Surgery Entail?
If you are experiencing pain in your hip or knee joints, we encourage you to schedule a visit to meet with one of our physicians at our satellite clinic conveniently located in Riverton, WY. We will assess the condition of your joints and severity of your pain, and if joint replacement surgery is determined to be the most effective treatment option for you, we’ll use the most advanced technology and techniques to ensure the best possible care.
When performing your joint replacement, our surgeons will remove all damaged areas of the joint and replace it with a prosthetic ball and socket. Total knee and hip replacements, in particular, involve replacing both sides of the weight-bearing joint surfaces with an implant. After your joint replacement surgery, we may recommend you temporarily use a cane or walker to get around. However, once your bone grows over the implant, you’ll be able to move around freely.
