Total Joint Replacement Q & A

What is total joint replacement?

Total joint replacement refers to surgical procedures that remove damaged joints and replace them with prosthetic parts. The goal of total joint replacement is to alleviate joint pain and disability and restore joint function and quality of life.

Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton is a cutting-edge orthopedic practice that performs total joint replacement procedures to fix many types of joints. They perform these joint replacement procedures at their on-site surgery center.

Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton is the only orthopedic practice in Dayton that can do all surgery center authorizations at one site. There’s no need to go to multiple facilities or providers when you need total joint replacement. The practice provides every pre-surgical test and screening.

Am I a candidate for total joint replacement?

The board-certified orthopedic surgeons at Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton specialize in total joint replacement. However, they never recommend surgery as the first treatment for your joint pain.

They may consider you a candidate for total joint replacement if you have joint pain from osteoarthritis or joint damage that no longer responds to conservative treatments like oral medications, joint injections, or physical therapy.

Though joint damage and pain are major factors in deciding whether you’re a candidate for total joint replacement, the surgeons also take into consideration your support systems.

Total joint replacement is a major surgery that requires a lengthy recovery with activity modifications and rehabilitation. For surgical success, you need to have at-home support to help you manage your daily needs, especially during those first few days following your total joint replacement surgery. 

What are the types of total joint replacement procedures?

Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton is a cutting-edge orthopedic practice that performs many types of total joint replacement procedures. This includes:

  • Hip replacement

  • Total shoulder replacement

  • Reverse total shoulder replacement (to treat complex shoulder arthritis)

  • Total knee replacement

  • Total ankle replacement

For those who qualify, the orthopaedic surgical experts perform same-day total joint replacement procedures. This means there’s no hospital stay and your surgeon sends you home the same day as your procedure.

When your joint pain keeps you from your active life, it might be time to consider total joint replacement. For comprehensive care, call Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton or schedule an appointment online today.
