Is Joint Replacement Right for Me?

If you're suffering with stiff, painful joints caused by severe arthritis, even small tasks can feel like monumental challenges. And while medication or physical therapy may help ease your pain, sometimes surgery may be your best solution for long-term relief.

The board-certified orthopedic surgeons on the medical staff at Astria Regional Medical Center specialize in joint replacement of the hips, knees, shoulders and ankles—a procedure in which injured or diseased joints are replaced with artificial ones. These specialists are skilled in minimally invasive techniques—including robotic-assisted surgery for partial knee replacement and total hip replacement—which often offer less pain and faster recovery.  Additionally, our new wellness floor offers a unique healing experience, which you'll share with patients just like you on the road to recovery. Learn more about our simple steps to joint replacement success.

Am I Candidate for Hip or Knee Replacement Surgery?

Hundreds of thousands of people have hip and knee replacement each year, with success rates of 98 and 96 percent respectively, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. In addition to relieving pain, these procedures can enhance mobility and function, and help you rediscover the active life you love.

You may qualify for a life-changing procedure if you:

  • Have severe arthritis or irreversible damage from fractures, torn cartilage and/or torn ligaments
  • Struggle with daily functions like getting out of chairs or walking up and down stairs
  • Are unable to sleep at night due to pain
  • Haven't found relief with anti-inflammatory/pain medication or physical therapy
