As with all areas of our practice, EmergeOrtho’s goal is to reduce pain and restore joint function to improve your mobility and quality of life.

While arthritis and cartilage deterioration are some of the main reasons patients have joint replacements, athletes and other sports enthusiasts may need joint replacements due to extensive activity and wear-and-tear on the joints.

  • Severe pain that doesn’t improve after resting
