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, 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 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.

How to get a second opinion for joint replacement
