Ortho Total Joint Replacement Surgery Atlanta, GA

Joint problems can limit mobility and cause chronic pain. The intersection where two bones meet requires the right combination of cushion and lubrication to move smoothly. When any component of a joint is damaged, it can become stiff, inflamed and painful to move. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we work with patients suffering from different types of joint pain and dysfunction. While many joint issues can be managed with conservative treatments, there are some severe joint issues that may require replacement surgery.

Total joint replacement surgery is usually the last resort for treating joint disorders. There are many other options and therapies that can help improve joint function and limit discomfort. Physical therapy, steroid injections, cutting-edge medicine and endoscopic joint repairs can often give patients the ability to avoid or delay joint replacement surgery. Whenever possible, our experienced physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians prefer finding effective, conservative treatment options for repairing and treating joint dysfunction. When it is the last option for our patients, total joint replacement is recommended.

Advanced Options for Total Joint Replacement

When the consensus between the patient, primary physician and surgeon is that joint replacement surgery is the best choice, you can trust our medical team at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We strive to help patients prepare for their surgery and create a personalized recovery plan to speed up the healing process. Our goal is to minimize downtime after surgery and help our patients regain their mobility and independence as quickly as possible.

There are dozens of joints in the body, but only a few are commonly replaced. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer a joint replacement for a few of the major joints, including:

We utilize the most advanced medical technology available in joint replacement surgeries. This includes using the latest imaging, surgical equipment and methods to ensure a successful joint replacement. The post-surgery phase is a vital aspect of recovering mobility, which is carefully planned for our patients to speed up their healing process.

When Is Joint Replacement Needed?

Joint replacement surgery is recommended when other forms of treatment are not successful. While advances in joint replacement surgery have extended the expected lifespan and success rates, it is usually older adults that are good candidates for this surgery. Arthritis, injury and disease that cause extensive cartilage, bone and other types of joint damage are the main reasons replacing the joint may be required to maintain mobility.

Joint replacement surgery can typically be performed in a few hours. Some patients return home on the same day, while others may require an overnight stay for observation. Recovery and downtime after surgery will vary depending on the patient and the type of joint replacement surgery performed. Our surgeons and medical team at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are here to answer any questions you may have about your surgery and the recovery process to help you through every step. We have a very high rate of success for our joint replacement surgeries, giving our patients a chance to improve their mobility and quality of life.

If you have joint pain or dysfunction, you need to know what options you have available for treatment. Regaining mobility is possible for many joint disorders with treatment options available at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We offer a wide variety of conservative and minimally invasive joint treatments, as well as total joint replacement surgery. Contact our office to schedule an appointment with one of our joint specialists to discuss whether joint replacement surgery is right for you.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
