Total and Partial Joint Replacement Procedures Offered to Dayton, NV, Area Residents at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic
Although joint replacement can be intimidating, it’s often necessary in cases where conservative treatment has failed to relieve a patient’s chronic joint pain. Dayton, Nevada, area residents can count on the specialists at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic to meet all of their joint replacement needs.
Some joints, such as the knee, are considered to be “hinge” joints, while others, such as the shoulder, are considered to be “ball and socket” joints. Patients in Dayton, NV, may require joint replacements if they’re living with a chronic condition like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, if their family has experienced cartilage issues in the past, or if they’ve sustained a traumatic injury like a fracture.
Replacing a joint involves removing the damaged portions thereof and replacing them with prosthetic components — often metal, plastic, or ceramic — that can mimic the movement of an otherwise healthy joint. Our surgeons routinely perform the following joint replacement surgeries:
- Ankle replacements
- Elbow replacements
- Hip replacements
- Knee replacements
- Shoulder replacements
- Wrist replacements
In some cases, our surgeons may be able to perform joint replacement procedures using minimally invasive techniques. Because minimally invasive procedures involve smaller incisions and less muscular trauma as compared with traditional procedures, they often result in shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times.
