Joint Preservation and Replacement
The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics (MMI Division) joins WDVM for another Webchat, this time to answer questions about joint preservation and replacement. If nonsurgical treatments like medications, physical therapy, and changes to your everyday activities do not relieve your pain and disability, you may be a candidate for joint replacement. Dr. James Steinberg, D.O., and Dr. Cory Walsh, M.D., have extensive specialty training in partial and total joint replacement, including secondary or revision joint replacement surgery. Ask them your questions on arthritis and the pains of aging, joint replacement surgery and what to expect, non-surgical options for pain relief, and more.
