When Good Joints Go Bad

Every step you take. Every move you make. It’s all made possible through the smooth, fluid movement of your joints.

When a joint starts to “go,” due to injury or disease, problems can manifest themselves in any number of ways—some of which can cause chronic pain, impair your mobility, and alter the course of your life.

For thousands of people every year, the solution is total joint replacement. Total joint replacement is time-tested surgery where your damaged joint is replaced with a brand new one, which can eliminate your pain and put you back into action. With a remarkable success rate.

It’s a procedure you can have done right here at Highland, with as little as three days in the hospital. And your commitment to a healthy rehab regimen will return you to your normal life in about 6 weeks.
