Every detail, from pre-operative teaching to post-operative exercising, is considered and reviewed with you.
The Metroplex Joint Care program is designed to help restore you to a higher quality of living with your new prosthetic knee or hip joint.
Annually, over 400,000 people undergo total joint replacement surgery. Primary candidates are individuals with chronic joint pain from arthritis that interferes with daily activities, walking, exercise, leisure, recreation and work. The surgery aims to relieve pain, restore your independence and return you to work and other daily activities.
Total knee or hip replacement patients recover quickly. Patients may be able to walk the first day after surgery. Generally, patients are able to return to driving in two to four weeks, dance in four to six weeks and golf in six to twelve weeks.
