Is it time to consider joint replacement surgery?

Joint pain can keep you from the simple things in life, such as climbing the stairs, walking outdoors on a beautiful day, or spending time with family and friends. Keeping up with daily tasks can be difficult when you have joint pain that stops you from moving.

If your joint pain is affecting your daily life, it may be time to think about joint replacement surgery.

Does your joint pain:

  • Keep you awake at night?
  • Cause you to limp when you walk?
  • Make you feel stiff and swollen?
  • Cause you to fall? How often?

If yes, joint replacement surgery may be right for you.

How to get a second opinion for joint replacement 

Whether you’re dealing with joint pain or you're considering joint replacement surgery, there’s a lot to think about. If you’re looking for a second opinion, orthopedic specialists at Ascension St. Vincent's are here for you.

We can help match you with the right orthopedic doctor or surgeon. Ask if a virtual or telehealth visit is available for your second opinion appointment.

Before your appointment, you should check with your insurance company to find out if a second opinion is covered or required. Ascension St. Vincent's can request your medical records from your doctor on your behalf, so that they can be shared with your care team before your arrival.
