A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the shoulder, knee, or hip. Joint replacement surgery consists of removing the old joint and replacing it with a new, artificial joint. This surgery may be necessary if the joint has been damaged by arthritis, injury, or other causes. Any of these conditions may cause mild discomfort to severe and debilitating pain.
At Manhattan Orthopedics, we have specialists in joint replacement, joint reconstruction, and joint preservation procedures. Our joint replacement surgeons are fellowship trained in the diagnosis and treatment of joint problems. We can address all kinds of joint concerns, including popping, catching, stiffness, and swelling.
