Regional Leaders in Advanced Joint Replacement
EmergeOrtho’s orthopedic surgeons make up one of the most highly skilled Joint Replacement and Reconstruction teams in the Southeast United States. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons have completed advanced fellowship training in specific subspecialty areas of orthopedics. What does this mean for our patients? EmergeOrtho patients have access to surgeons who have dedicated their career to master a specific set of skills in a subspeciality area of orthopedic medicine. Our practice is committed to staying up to date on the newest techniques and innovations, including minimally invasive surgical options that can drastically improve the outcomes of our patients.
EmergeOrtho joint replacement surgery includes procedures for the hip, knee, shoulder, ankle, as well as joints for the hand, wrist, elbow, and foot. While severe joint arthritis (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid) frequently leads to the need for a joint replacement, other causes often include extensive activity, joint related wear & tear, joint deformities, avascular necrosis, painful prosthesis, and failure of previous joint surgery. Unfortunately, some arthritis is so severe that non-surgical treatment is not effective. When this is the case, joint replacement can be an excellent option to eliminate pain and restore function.
As with all areas of our practice, our goal is for you to Emerge Stronger. Healthier. Better.
Some key symptoms that indicate the need for a joint replacement include:
- Severe pain that doesn’t improve after resting
- Pain that continues day and night
- Joint deformity that inhibits range of motion
- Inflammation or swelling
- Unsuccessful nonsurgical treatments such as cortisone injections and physical therapy
