Total Joint Replacements
Chronic Joint Pain Care
Arthritis is the most common reason for chronic joint pain and disability. When more conservative treatments fail to offer lasting relief, you may benefit from joint replacement surgery.
At South Florida Orthopedic Group, formerly known as Meli Orthopedic Centers of Excellence, our orthopedic surgeons are experienced in the latest minimally invasive techniques available for the replacement of hip and knee joints. Joint replacement surgery, also called arthroplasty, involves removing the damaged portion of the hip or knee and replacing it with an artificial joint that allows for pain-free movement.
Knee Replacement Surgery
The knee is the largest joint in the body, and as such, it is vulnerable to injury. Knees bear a great deal of weight over the course of a lifetime and can show signs of damage with pain, swelling, and a loss of range of motion. Arthritis is the most common cause of debilitating chronic knee pain.
For many, knee replacement is the only way to relieve pain, restore motion, and improve quality of life. Knee replacement surgery, also called knee arthroplasty, involves removing the damaged portion of the knee and replacing it with artificial implants called prosthetics. Knee replacement is highly successful in relieving pain and restoring joint function.
