Osteoarthritis Treatments and Joint Replacement

Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, often affects aging adults but can affect people at an earlier age as a result of overuse. Our orthopedic doctors prefer to treat arthritis without surgery for as long as possible. For osteoarthritis of the knee, viscosupplementation injections lubricate the joint, helping to minimize pain, stiffness, and swelling.

When arthritis finally progresses to the stage at which surgery becomes necessary, our board-certified orthopedists perform hip resurfacing, hip replacement, total knee replacement, and partial knee replacement, often using a minimally invasive approach, to improve joint function and eliminate pain. We prescribe a comprehensive post-operative rehabilitation program and work closely with your physical therapist to optimize results and help you return to normal activity as quickly as possible.

Our Springfield orthopedic surgeons also perform over 500 arthroscopic procedures annually to diagnose and treat many other injuries and conditions of the hips and knees.
