Joint Replacement Awareness- Know Your Options!

May 4, 2019

 

May 4 is recognized as “Joint Replacement Awareness Day”. The goal of Joint Replacement Awareness Day is to dispel any concerns and fill the gaps in patients questions regarding joint replacement options.

Have you been told that you may need a total joint replacement? Did you know that traditional artificial joint replacements can limit a person’s range of motion and ability to perform daily tasks?  They also restrict physical activities such as cycling, martial arts and weightlifting as well as some normal everyday activities like picking your children up. Unlike a traditional total shoulder or knee replacement, the Arthrosurface® Joint Restoration Systems remove less bone, restore the native anatomy of the joint and allow you to resume full activity and live an independent lifestyle!

The idea behind our Shoulder Implant systems is to prevent further damage to the joint while maintaining the patient’s native anatomy, motion and activity level. The HemiCAP® & OVO® shoulder restoring systems aim to relieve your pain while preventing further damage to the joint and maintaining the natural shoulder anatomy
and motion.

5 ways you could be a candidate for our shoulder implant.

  1. You want to regain your active lifestyle.
  2. You suffer from Shoulder Arthritis, Avascular Necrosis (AVN), Hillsachs Lesions, Post-traumatic degenerative disease and / or Osteoarthritis
  3. You’ve had previous treatment / surgeries or injections, but the pain has returned.
  4. Lengthy rehabilitation time or excessive time off work is not an option.
  5. You’d prefer to fix your shoulder problem now versus waiting for your shoulder to undergo further damage.
  6. Your surgeon has told you that you will need a shoulder replacement in the future.

Knee

Our joint restoration is performed with the PF Wave implant, a technologically advanced system designed to match the shape and contour of your cartilage surface.

7 ways you could be a candidate for our knee implant.

  1. You want to regain your active lifestyle.
  2. You have Patella Maltracking
  3. You’ve had multiple previous knee surgeries
  4. You’ve had marrow stimulation treatment or injections, but the pain has returned.
  5. Lengthy rehabilitation time or excessive time off work is not an option.
  6. You’d prefer to fix your knee problem now versus waiting for your knee to undergo further damage.
  7. Your surgeon has told you that you will need a knee replacement in the future.

What you should know about our systems:

  • Little to no activity restrictions creates an active alternative to total shoulder  & knee replacement
  • HemiCAP® Implants are custom matched and fit a patient’s joint size and shape
  • Significantly less cartilage and bone is removed than traditional total joint replacements
  • Arthrosurface implants are placed into the joint surface rather than on top, restoring the natural anatomy
  • Rock-Solid Fixation between the Cap & Screw
  • Inlay Implants are inherently more stable than onlay implants
  • Can be performed as an Outpatient Procedure to avoid long hospital stays and large hospital bills. Typical hospital stay is 1 Day or less with Arthrosurface Implants
  • Allows patients to maintain high-level physical activities and lifestyles
  • All Knee HemiCAP® Implants leave the ACL, MCL & PCL intact
  • Shortened Recovery Time means less time out of work and getting your life back sooner
