If everyday activities such as walking, shopping, or housework are difficult or unbearable – and modifying your diet, exercising and taking medications no longer provide relief or alleviate your joint pain – it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery.
If you are experiencing any kind of joint pain , you should discuss it with your doctor or orthopedic surgeon. At your appointment, your doctor or surgeon will discuss your personal health history, lifestyle and daily activities; he or she will also perform a complete physical exam, complete with X-rays of your problem joint(s), to determine the course of treatment that’s right for you.
At Fort HealthCare’s Center for Joint Replacement, we provide you with an exceptional, patient-centered surgery and rehabilitation experience for total hip and knee joint replacements.

We know you have a choice in deciding where to go for your procedure. At Fort HealthCare, our goal is to make your stay with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
