A less invasive procedure, this surgery uses a small light tube with a video lens on the end. This allows your surgeon to see exactly where he or she is working inside the joint. The scope goes in through small incisions, reducing recovery time.
Our Center for Joint Replacement will prepare you for total or partial joint replacement surgery.
Corticosteroids (such as prednisone) are a common form of steroid injection. Your doctor may use a combination of drugs for the injection. Some injections are a one-time treatment, others are given in a series over a few weeks. Pain relief can last weeks to months, depending on the condition and severity.
Often physical therapy is part of your post-surgery recovery plan. However, physical therapy is used to prevent and relieve pain from many conditions, whether neurological or sports-related. Work with our physical therapists to restore strength and your healthy lifestyle.
