Patients decide to have their knees, hips and shoulders replaced when the debilitating effects of degenerative joint disease impact their daily lives, preventing them from performing even the most basic tasks. The procedures pay off in the long run, but patients must endure significant pain during the early days of recovery before realizing the life-changing benefits. Our multispecialty ambulatory surgery center is on target to perform more than 500 total joint replacements this year. We lean on the latest pain management techniques to help patients regain an active lifestyle as quickly and as comfortably as possible.
