Are you trying to decide if joint replacement is right for you? Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I have persistent pain even when I am in a resting position?
- Has my ability to work, enjoy my hobbies, and perform recreational activities diminished?
- Do I avoid the use of my joint?
- Does pain control my life?
If you answer yes to one or more of these questions you should contact an orthopedic surgeon to weigh the benefits and risks of joint replacement surgery. Their goal is to restore you back to the lifestyle you enjoy and eliminate the pain.
