(Total knee or hip replacement)
Arthroplasty is surgery intended to relieve pain and to restore function to an arthritic knee or hip. The most common reason for knee or hip replacement is that other treatments (weight loss, medicines, and injections) have failed to relieve arthritis-associated knee pain. The goal of knee replacement is to relieve pain, improve quality of life, and maintain or improve knee function.
The doctors at Southeast Michigan Center for Orthopedics are hip and knee experts that perform state-of-the-art surgery and communicate closely with physical therapists for effective post-rehabilitation. The goal is to restore pain-free hip, knee, and joint motion to allow patients to enjoy life to its fullest!
