Joint replacement for relief of chronic pain
Advances in medical technology have made joint replacement therapy a highly effective option to treat chronic joint pain from arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases or injury. Physicians Regional’s comprehensive joint replacement program draws from the expertise of a multidisciplinary care team including orthopedic doctors, surgeons, pain management specialists and physical therapists. We offer the latest advancements in joint replacement surgery, including:
- Total joint replacement for knees, hips, elbows and shoulders
- Hip resurfacing
- Minimally invasive options
State-of-the-art robotic technology for knee replacement
Physicians Regional’s surgeons can offer a minimally invasive option to alleviate knee pain associated with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. Surgeons use the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System to perform MAKOplasty® partial knee replacement, a procedure that allows them to resurface the diseased area while sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. The digital tracking system constantly monitors and updates the patient’s anatomy and allows the surgeon to make real-time adjustments to optimize implant positioning and placement.
MAKOplasty offers a number of benefits over traditional knee replacement techniques, including:
- Optimal implant positioning that results in a more natural knee motion.
- Less pain, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
- As a knee arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplasty is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
