Joint Replacement Surgery
Why tackle the hustle and bustle and extreme traffic of Little Rock when you can get superior joint replacement surgery close to home, right here in Conway?
Do you suffer from chronic joint pain? Osteoarthritis, a condition in which the protective cartilage that covers your joints disintegrates and causes the bones to rub together, is the most common cause of joint pain and the leading reason for joint replacement surgery. When you become crippled by pain and immobility and non-surgical treatments no longer help, it’s time for surgical intervention.
At Conway Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic, our board-certified surgeons are experts at joint replacement surgery of the shoulder, knee, and hip. Also called arthroplasty, joint replacement surgery involves removing the damaged portion of the hip, knee, or shoulder and replacing it with an artificial joint that allows for pain-free movement.
In conjunction with Conway Regional Medical Center, Conway Orthopaedic offers a Joint Replacement Academy on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at 4 pm. Many of our patients have told us that this class was extremely beneficial in preparing for joint replacement surgery. It informs the patient of which exercises to do before the surgery to help with recovery and what to do to get your home ready for the use of a walker or crutches, as well as additional beneficial information.
Some of the most common joint surgeries that our doctors perform include:
