Your joints play a significant role in your body’s mobility and flexibility. The many components that make up your joints must all work together to keep your body in motion. Any injury or damage to any structure that makes up your joint may affect function and your ability to carry out daily activities.
When you have joint pain or a joint injury, medical treatments are a standard recommendation to help heal the underlying issue and restore health and function. However, if your injury is severe or your pain is debilitating, you may need joint surgery.
Common conditions that benefit from joint surgery include:
- Severe osteoarthritis
- Tendon tears
- Ligament tears
- Meniscal tears
- Complicated fractures
The orthopaedic surgical experts at Town Center Orthopaedic Associates specialize in joint surgery, and can determine when surgical intervention is the best choice for you.
