Total Joint Replacement

Rockhill Orthopaedic Specialists provides comprehensive evaluations and treatment plans for patients with permanent and progressive damage to knees, hips, or shoulders as a result of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, or other joint disorders.

Osteoarthritis is the most common progressive joint disease that leads to pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility. Our physicians begin with an initial assessment, which involves a review of medical records and history, complete musculoskeletal physical exam and acquisition and review of appropriate radiological studies (X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs). Patient-tailored treatment recommendations are based on findings and diagnosis in conjunction with age, activity level, and medical history.

Treatment recommendations vary from conservative non-surgical measures to surgical intervention. Options are discussed with the patient as part of education and counseling. Non-surgical treatment includes anti-inflammatory medications, joint injections, physical therapy, and/or an individually designed home exercise program.
