Comprehensive Solutions for Arthritic Knees and Hips

Age, stress, and disease can make joints stiffen similarly to the way wear can cause stiffness and squeaking in old hinges. EmergeOrtho’s joint specialists utilize the latest research, technology and techniques to provide the right treatment at the right time for each patient.

There are several types of arthritis, but the most common type to affect the hip and knee joints is osteoarthritis. This occurs with “wear and tear” on your joints. Every joint is cushioned by cartilage, an elastic tissue that reduces the friction between your bones and joints. However, as you age, cartilage gradually wears away, resulting in pain and swelling. This can turn into osteoarthritis of the hip or knee.

Non-Surgical treatments for arthritis in hips and knees include

Surgical treatments for arthritis in hips and knees include

Knee and Hip pain can often be relieved with minimally invasive procedures, joint realignment, ligament reconstruction, and arthroscopy, which require only tiny incisions and a few stitches.

Sometimes, total or partial knee or hip replacement is needed. This procedure substitutes an arthritic or damaged joint with an artificial joint called a prosthesis. This is an important treatment option for severe joint pain and stiffness. The artificial joint is designed to move just like a healthy human joint, relieving pain and restoring normal function.

Our orthopedic knee and hip specialists realize that arthritis can have a devastating effect on your lifestyle and interfere with everyday activities. Therefore, we’re committed to developing complete, customized treatment plans to accommodate your individual needs.
