If You’re Considering Joint Replacement Surgery, Turn to the Experts at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic’s Reno, NV, Office
Many people in the Reno, Nevada, area consider joint replacement surgery as a way to relieve their chronic joint pain. Indeed, joint pain can be unbearable, especially when it lasts for months or even years on end, and surgery may seem like an ideal fix. In many cases, however, patients living with joint pain are able to find relief using nonsurgical treatment methods. For this reason, we generally recommend that patients first attempt conservative treatment techniques before turning to surgery.
In some cases, though, joint replacement surgery may be needed to achieve relief from chronic joint pain. That’s why, at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we’re so pleased to make the following joint replacement procedures available to patients in Reno, NV, and the surrounding area:
- Shoulder replacement
- Elbow replacement
- Wrist replacement
- Hip replacement
- Knee replacement
- Ankle replacement
In some cases, we may be able to perform joint replacement surgery using minimally invasive techniques. Doing so requires a smaller incision and causes less trauma to the surrounding muscles and tendons, allowing for a shorter hospital stay and a faster recovery. The orthopedic specialists at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic can let you know whether you might benefit from joint surgery, and if so, whether you qualify for a minimally invasive procedure.
If you’ve been living with chronic joint pain that you’ve been unable to relieve using conservative treatment, please call Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic today for more information about our various joint replacement procedures, as well as the other services we perform. We would be happy to answer your questions and help you schedule an appointment at our Reno, NV, location or any of our other nearby offices.
