Joints that are damaged by injuries, wear and tear from years of use, or diseases such as arthritis can not only be painful they can also impact a person's lifestyle. If damage is severe and joint preservation is not an option, joint replacement can be the answer to reducing pain and restoring your mobility. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Carroll is an expert in the field of joint replacement, performing the most advanced techniques available.
Joint Replacement / Joint Preservation
Joint preservation is a concept of restoring normal and pain-free function to the knee, hip, and shoulder joint. Joint preservation is achieved through the use of treatment methods that can include activity modifications, physical therapy, medications, injections, and sometimes surgery. Just as every patient is different, each patient’s joint preservation strategy is personalized for his or her age, activity level, expectations, and degree of joint dysfunction.
Anterior Hip Replacement
Dr. Carroll is now offering anterior approach total hip arthroplasty. This is a new way to implant a hip replacement with minimally invasive techniques that allow for muscle sparing instead of muscle splitting. This approach will allow a faster recovery and fewer restrictions on activity after surgery.
Dr. Carroll is now offering minimally invasive partial and total knee replacement. These procedures can even be done on an outpatient basis, meaning no hospital stay. With many years of experience and dedication to providing patients with individualized, compassionate treatment, Dr. Carroll can help alleviate your pain and get you on the path to recovery.
