Are you dealing with damaged joints? Total joint replacement may be necessary. The goal of total joint replacement is to relieve the pain in the joint, which is usually caused by damage done to the cartilage and to restore function. When other treatments fail to relieve your pain and disability, you can count on total joint replacement.
Our Operations at El Paso Specialty Hospital
At El Paso Specialty Hospital we specialize in three different operations:
- Total Hip Replacement- If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a fracture, or other serious conditions, you may wish to consider a total hip replacement. By removing the damaged bone and cartilage and replacing them with prosthetic materials, you may no longer suffer from hip pain.
- Total Knee Replacement- If you have severe knee pain or suffer from various knee conditions and nonsurgical treatments are no longer helping you, your doctor may recommend total knee replacement surgery. Total knee replacement surgery involves replacing the damaged surfaces of the knee bones with implants on the femur and tibia. These implants are constructed from artificial material consisting of either metal alloys, ceramic material, or strong plastic parts. If total knee replacement surgery is in your future, your surgeon can help you decide which type of implant is right for you to help relieve your pain and restore you back to an active lifestyle.
- Total Shoulder Replacement- Shoulder joint replacement surgery is a procedure to be considered if traditional nonsurgical treatments are no longer successful in relieving you of your pain. This procedure involves replacing the damaged joint surfaces with a prosthetic material and consists of either the replacement of the head of the humerus bone (ball) or the replacement of both the head of the humerus bone and the glenoid (ball and socket).
Total joint replacement can give you years of pain-free living that would not be possible otherwise.
