If you suffer from pain and limited mobility due to a damaged or arthritic joint, a joint replacement surgery may be able to improve your quality of life and enable a higher level of activity. A joint replacement surgery, or arthroplasty, involves the replacement of the joint (or part of the joint) with a prosthesis.
OSMC has the most experienced team of joint replacement surgeons in the area. Our surgeons have performed hundreds of joint replacements, and patients consistently report a better quality of life after recovery.

Your primary care physician will do appropriate pre-operative testing, such as lab work, a chest X-ray and an EKG. After surgery, physical therapists, occupational therapists, case managers, nurses and social workers work as a team to enhance your recovery.
