Our talented orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Chris Miller, has specialized experience with joint replacement procedures for the hip, knee, and shoulder. Dr. Miller takes the time to explain exactly what to expect from a joint replacement. He will follow up with his patients after surgery on a regular basis to make sure the replacement is working as expected.
Arthritis is one of the most common conditions that can lead to a joint replacement procedure. Dr. Miller has treated hundreds of arthritis patients who are now enjoying life without joint pain, but surgery is usually a last resort for most patients. When conservative pain treatments are not enough, it may be time to consider joint replacement.
Not everyone is a candidate for joint replacement surgery, and not all joint replacements are created equal. Modern medicine and technology are continually advancing to make a better joint replacement that feels and functions like a natural joint. If there is a specific type of replacement you’ve heard about, be sure to ask Dr. Miller about it during your appointment.
