Is Joint Replacement Right For Me?
If you're suffering with stiff, painful joints caused by severe arthritis, even small tasks can feel like monumental challenges. And while medication or physical therapy may help ease your pain, sometimes surgery may be your best solution for long-term relief.
The orthopedic surgeons on the medical staff at Pottstown Hospital specialize in TOTAL JOINT REPLACEMENT, a procedure in which injured or diseased joints are replaced with artificial ones. We're proud to offer our Montgomery County communities a program that has been certified with the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for both total hip and total knee replacement. Additionally, our dedicated orthopedics wellness floor offers a unique healing experience following surgery - complete with all private rooms, dedicated orthopedic staff and a host of special amenities.
Am I Candidate for Hip or Knee Replacement Surgery?
Hundreds of thousands of people have hip and knee replacement each year, with success rates of 98 and 96 percent respectively, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. In addition to relieving pain, these procedures can enhance mobility and function, and help you rediscover the active life you love.
You may qualify for a life-changing procedure if you:
- Have severe arthritis or irreversible damage from fractures, torn cartilage and/or torn ligaments
- Struggle with daily functions like getting out of chairs or walking up and down stairs
- Are unable to sleep at night due to pain
- Haven't found relief with anti-inflammatory/pain medication or physical therapy
