Daily life requires that we place an incredible demand on our joints. As we age, this demand can result in severe discomfort and pain. However, a proper diagnosis and treatment plan can lead to relief. In some cases, a joint specialist may suggest a joint replacement to achieve total pain relief. If you are considering a joint replacement or if you need a joint revision to ensure that your existing artificial implant is working as it should, our team can help. Comprehensive Orthopaedic Global employs a specially trained doctor who is recognized across the country as an expert in joint replacement and revision. Primary candidates for joint replacement surgery are people with arthritis and chronic joint pain and knees and/or hips that interfere with walking, exercise, recreation, and work. The surgery aims to relieve pain, restore your independence and return you to work or daily activities. Total joint replacement patients recover quickly—they are able to walk as soon as the first day after surgery. Read more about Total Joint Replacement Program

One of the most vital aspects of your quick recovery is working with a physical therapist as soon as possible. We ensure that a physical therapist will visit you within just a few hours of your procedure, helping you to get moving and focus on restoring your joint movement as quickly as you are able. Our team is always available to answer your questions and put you in total control of your recovery.
Blood clots are some of the most common risks in a joint replacement procedure. If you’d like more information about blood clots and how to prevent them during a hip or knee replacement, please visit the Stop the Clot Patient Toolkit provided by the National Blood Clot Alliance.
