Joint Replacement Procedures

Turning Back the Clock on Joint Pain

One of the more common conditions that people deal with as they age is joint pain. Your joints are asked to endure tremendous stress on a daily basis. Overuse, degenerative disease, or just the general passage of time can cause them to deteriorate. Thankfully, we at miVIP Las Vegas offer total joint replacement procedures to help combat joint pain.

Joint replacement surgery involves either the reconstruction of an existing joint or the creation of a new one using a prosthesis. New joints can be either cemented or uncemented. Which method you choose will depend upon your age and/or activity level. New joints will usually last anywhere from 10-15 years.

Common procedures

At miVIP, we offer a variety of joint replacement procedures. Which of these is right for you depends upon a number of different factors. Information obtained during your initial consultation with an miVIP surgeon will be used to make this decision.

  • Reconstructive arthroplasty: This procedure involves the revision or reconstruction of a deformed joint by replacing the damaged bone and tissue. The bones in the joint itself are either reshaped or replaced with metal or plastic parts.
  • Total joint replacement: As the name implies, total joint replacement procedures involve completely removing the “ball” part of the joint from the bone and replacing it with a prosthesis. Included among the joint replacement surgeries we offer are:

Conditions

The primary conditions that lead to joint pain are:

  • Arthritis injury: Arthritis is the common name used for joint inflammation. An arthritis injury is any physical trauma that causes such inflammation.
  • Damaged joints: Joint damage can result from either injury or degenerative diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Symptoms

Any of the following may be a sign that you need joint replacement surgery:

  • Trouble walking or sleeping
  • Chronic pain
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Lack of response to pain medication

Treatment Options

  • Non-surgical treatment: One can try to control joint pain through medication or limit it through chances in diet and exercise.
  • Surgical intervention: Pain that has stopped responding to medication may a good indicator that joint surgery is needed. Total joint replacement procedures are usually done on an outpatient basis and require only a short recovery period.
