Joint Replacement Surgery
At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds will always attempt conservative treatment options for preserving joint integrity. However, some patients may require either partial or complete joint replacement surgery to restore function and improve quality of life.
If you are a suitable candidate for joint replacement in California, Silicon Valley Orthopaedics offers excellent outcomes from treatment. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds have extensive experience in orthopedic surgery, including joint restoration and replacement procedures.
Replacing any joint involves complex surgery. At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, we will carry out a comprehensive clinical examination before recommending partial or complete replacement. Symptoms including chronic pain when at rest, significant joint instability, loss of function or inability to bear weight on a limb may require joint replacement.
Joint Replacement in Progressive Illness
Although joint replacement is typically needed when significant deterioration has occurred, a progressive illness may also necessitate a joint replacement surgery. A partial or complete joint replacement involves removing the mechanical parts of the joint and installing prosthetic replacement parts that mimic the functions of the original joint.
Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds understand the implications of having joint replacement surgery. We treat all patients with compassion and understanding, always ensuring that treatment options are patient-guided. We will only recommend joint replacement when conservative or joint preservation treatments are not viable options for eliminating pain and restoring function.
If you are concerned about joint health and would like an expert consultation with a specialist orthopedic surgeon, book an appointment at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics in California today. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds will have a frank and open discussion around treatment options based on the results of your examination.
