Joint Replacement

Clearwater Joint Replacement

Knee, Hip & Shoulder Replacement Surgeries

Joint replacement is the last-resort treatment for chronic aches and pains that have not responded to conservative treatments. Joint replacement is often very effective and can significantly improve a person’s quality of life. However, the procedures are intensive and patients will need to set aside a decent bit of time to fully recover from the operation.

People are often recommended joint replacement surgery when they have severe pains caused by:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Severe joint injuries
  • Previous joint injuries that never fully recovered
  • Hip fractures
  • Bone tumors

Determining if a patient is a good candidate for joint replacement surgery will require a thorough assessment. At Comprehensive Spine Institute, our experienced joint replacement doctors provide personalized care and attention to every patient. We explore all treatment options before considering surgery.

What to Expect After Joint Replacement Surgery

Patients respond to surgery differently, but in most cases, they will return to a high level of activity after they have fully recovered from the operation. In many cases, patients will need to undergo physical rehabilitation while they recover to fully adjust to the joint and strengthen their muscles.

Patients normally do not have trouble returning to low-impact activities such as swimming, biking, aerobics, golf, or tennis. Running can be fine in small doses, but be sure to discuss this with your physician. For the most part, patients can resume their normal day-to-day activities without difficulty.

Joint replacements are usually made of metal, ceramic, and/or plastic. Although they are built for durability and mobility, they are not permanent. Typical joint replacements last for about 20 years.
