Am I A Candidate for A Knee or Hip Replacement?
If you’re experiencing knee or hip pain, even the little things become a big struggle. Walking the dog, grocery shopping or going for a jog can become a tremendous challenge. A knee or hip replacement may be the best solution for you if you suffer from one or more of the following conditions:
• Bone fractures
• Inability to sleep through the pain
• Pain that limits or prevents activities and does not respond to other therapy
There’s an easy way to find out if total joint replacement surgery is right for you. Answer a few questions to get started.
