An arthroscopy is an excellent alternative for joint surgery. The incisions are smaller, there is less scaring and the recuperation time is quicker. The majority of the time, your surgeon can diagnose and treat the problem during an arthroscopy.
Total joint replacement is a treatment option used to alleviate pain and decreased mobility caused by arthritis. It may be considered when other treatment options have failed. This procedure can allow you to lead a more productive and active life.
