Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint pain can be progressively debilitating and make daily life very uncomfortable. Activities you once enjoyed, like taking walks, going shopping, or even doing simple household chores can become unbearable. You may have even tried some nonsurgical treatments like improved diet and taking prescription medications that no longer provide enough relief from the pain. If this describes your life, it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery.

If you’re looking to change your life and get you back to living more freely with improved mobility and comfort, you can rely on joint replacement surgery because it gets results. An important part of your journey in joint replacement recovery is attending physical therapy and/or occupational therapy to have the tools and knowledge you need while healing and building up strength and mobility. We aim to make this transition from hospital to home as seamless as possible to get you back to doing your favorite activities sooner.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee pain resulting from injuries or arthritis can be so severe that it keeps you up at night. If nonoperative treatments are insufficient to relieve your pain, you may be a good candidate for total knee replacement surgery. Wabash General Hospital offers both total knee replacement and partial knee replacement surgery, depending on your needs. Your orthopaedic surgeon will assess which knee replacement option is best for you.

Hip Replacement Surgery

The hips are a weight-bearing joint that can become arthritic through wear and tear and use over the years. Hip replacement surgery is a permanent joint pain solution for those with late-stage hip arthritis. Your orthopaedic surgeon may recommend hip replacement surgery if conservative therapies provide sufficient hip pain relief and keep you from doing things you enjoy.
