Don't Let Your Joint Pain Keep You Down
Over time, the cartilage that cushions the bones can wear away, cause pain and discomfort, and make simple pleasures like walking and shopping unbearable. Hip replacement can reduce or eliminate pain, allow easier movement and get you back to the things you enjoy.
Knee replacement surgery is generally recommended for patients with severe knee pain and disability caused by damage to cartilage from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or trauma. It is highly successful in relieving pain and restoring joint function.
MAKOplasty is a surgeon-controlled, robotic-arm assisted procedure for partial knee resurfacing, total knee replacement and total hip replacement. MAKOplasty® is available at the Orthopaedic Hospital at Sentara CarePlex, Sentara Albemarle Medical Center and Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital.
The shoulder joint consists of a shoulder blade (scapula) and an arm bone (humerus).
Cartilage in the shoulder sometimes becomes worn and no longer provides the protection needed to pad the joint. This results in painful movement and decreased functional use of the arm. If changes to your daily activities no longer provide adequate pain relief, a shoulder replacement may become the best form of treatment to regain pain-free motion and functional use of the arm.
This innovative option offers you all of the high-quality care of our Sentara OrthoJoint Center®, coupled with a shortened hospital stay.
