Sometimes it’s easy to forget how much you depend on healthy hips and knees. That is until the pain makes it hard to walk, get out of bed or even sit. Arthritis in your joints is the most common cause of chronic hip and knee pain.
You may reach a point where your hip or knee joint becomes too damaged and nonsurgical treatment doesn’t relieve your ongoing pain. Banner Health offers hip and knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty) to help you get back to the activities you love.
Hip and knee replacement surgery can relieve pain and help you be more active. After your surgery you’ll may be advised to avoid high-impact activities, such as contact sports and running. But, you should still be back to enjoying your everyday activities with less pain.
Our orthopedic surgeons are skilled specialists. Whenever possible, they use the least invasive procedures available. An advanced minimally invasive approach means smaller incisions, faster healing and a shorter hospital stay.
You and your family are an important part of the team, too. Talk with your doctor about your treatment options. Learn what to expect before, during and after surgery so you have the information you need to make the decision that’s right for you.
