If you’ve heard stories from individuals who had joint replacement decades or even just a few years ago, they might have scary stories about how much it hurt, how long it took to heal, and even how little it helped. Sometimes, a joint replacement doesn’t go as planned (that’s why repairs are an option!), but the risk of something going wrong was much more likely in the past compared to today. With advances in technology, we have developed methods that require less recovery time and less scarring. Additionally, the implementation of robotics has made procedures more accurate and reliable than they used to be, so you can trust that we will work carefully to maintain as much of your original muscle as possible while adjusting or improving your situation.
