Americans today are enjoying longer, more active lives than any other time in history. The OrthoGeorgia Joint Center through clinical and diagnostic expertise is designed to help relieve pain, increase mobility, and enable individuals to live a fuller more active lifestyle. OrthoGeorgia Total Joint Center is dedicated to ensuring the best outcome for our patients for the things that matter most. OrthoGeorgia now offers partial knee replacement surgery in an out-patient setting. This minimally invasive surgical procedure offers less down time, shorter rehabilitation time for recovery, and no overnight stay in the hospital.
Joint replacement surgery is performed to an arthritic or damaged joint with a new, artificial joint called a prosthesis. The knee and the hip are the most commonly replaced joints, although the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and ankle joints can also be replaced. OrthoGeorgia board certified and fellowship trained physicians specialize in all types of joint replacement procedures.
Joints contain cartilage, a material that cushions the ends of bones and facilitates movement. Over time, or if the joint has been injured, the cartilage wears away and the bones of the joint start rubbing together causing bone spurs to form. The joint becomes stiff and painful/arthritic. Most people have joint replacement surgery when they can no longer control the pain with medication and other treatments and the pain significantly interferes with their daily activities. It can be a life-changing procedure enabling patients who are battling chronic pain or disability in their joints to live fuller, more active lives.
