Is it time to consider joint replacement surgery?

Shoulder, knee and hip pain can keep you from the simple things in life, such as climbing the stairs or walking outdoors on a beautiful day. 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 shoulder, knee or hip 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.

Joint care personalized for you

Age, arthritis and injury are all possible reasons for joint pain. Living with joint pain can stop you from enjoying the things you love. That's why our orthopedic specialists and care teams take the time to listen and understand you and your joint pain. By working with you, together we'll create a personalized plan that's right for you.   

Advanced surgical techniques

Robotic-arm assisted surgery for knee and hip replacements is available at Ascension St. Vincent Fishers and Ascension St. Vincent Orthopedic Hospital in Evansville. Your surgeon creates a personalized, 3-D surgical plan. Greater accuracy, along with better implant alignment and positioning means that you may experience less pain, recover faster, and have more flexibility.   

Getting the right care at the right time is critical for your health. Find a doctor and ask if a virtual or telehealth visit is available for your first visit. 

First, talk with your doctor and schedule your joint replacement surgery. Then, our joint care team at Ascension St. Vincent will help you learn how to get ready for your surgery. You will also learn what to expect from orthopedic surgery and therapy. We’ll discuss exercises, physical therapy, what to expect after you are home, and more.
