For many Rothman Institute patients, joint replacement is the solution for pain and decreased mobility. Because like all surgeries, joint replacement procedures do require some recovery time, they are normally only considered after all other non-surgical options have been discussed and/or attempted. Normally, joint surgery provides significant and wonderful results for the majority of patients. This type of procedure should be done by a specialist in the field; particularly in the field of the patient’s exact need, such as a hip specialist or a knee specialist. At Rothman Institute, patients have the advantage of being seen by physicians who have actually helped develop and launch joint replacement techniques and who are considered to be well-renowned authorities on the topic of joint replacement.
