The major joints of the body – knees, hips, shoulders – will incur damage, degenerate and lose some measure of function over the course of your life. This deterioration can be the result of athletic stress, past injuries or contributing factors like obesity or poor strength. Regardless of the cause, these arthritic conditions—most commonly osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis—in can cause intense pain and severely negatively impact your quality of life.
The goal for total joint replacement is to reduce pain, increase mobility and improve a person’s quality of life for years or even decades to come. Leading surgery centers like Center for Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery can now confidently offer same-day total shoulder, total hip and total knee replacements, followed by recovery in the comfort of your own home.
Home recovery has many benefits including decreasing infection risk, avoiding unnecessarily high costs of a hospital visit, and immediate control over post operative pain and therapy. Allowing you to rest and recover in a familiar environment increases your comfort and makes your journey back to full health simpler and easier.
