Are You Ready for Joint Replacement?

-A +A

The joint replacement surgeons at Professional Orthopaedic Associates say if you’re experiencing the following signs, you may be ready for a joint replacement procedure.

  • You’re experiencing joint pain that keeps you awake, or awakens you, at night.
  • You have joint pain that limits you from participating in activities you enjoy, such as exercising, traveling, walking, or shopping.
  • You have tried conservative treatment methods for a reasonable amount of time, and you are still experiencing persistent joint pain.

You and your doctor may consider several other factors when determining whether a joint replacement procedure is the right choice for you. “Your age, overall health, and bone density all contribute to whether you’re ready to undergo a joint replacement procedure,” explains Dr. Mark W. Gesell, joint replacement surgeon at Professional Orthopaedic Associates.
