Joint Replacement & Spine Surgery

Why Joint Replacement?

Normally our bodies are supposed to provide us with smooth, pain-free movement. As we age, however, our bodies undergo change that sometimes results in joint pain of the knees, hips and shoulders. This pain is not only uncomfortable but also prevents us from doing the everyday activities we enjoy.

Jersey Shore University Medical Center’s network of orthopedic surgeons offers the most comprehensive range of services in central New Jersey to prevent and correct injuries and disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints and ligaments.

Common Causes of Joint Pain
Common causes of joint pain are often a result of over use, sprains, fractures and arthritis. In order to determine the best treatment option for your joint pain, it is important to familiarize yourself with the usual causes and symptoms associated with joint pain, as well as understand your options in maintaining healthy bones and joints.

10 Things to Consider Before Joint Replacement

Total Package

For many patients, the road to treatment and eventual recovery seems an overwhelming task, but with the joint replacement and spine surgery program at Jersey Shore, your journey back to mobility is not an individual effort. We offer a joint education class prior to surgery which provides information concerning surgery, preparing for it, and what to expect while you are in the hospital and recovering.

Individualized physical therapy programs are provided by skilled therapists, and through treatments focused on improving ambulation, strength, and function, patients are prepared for moving to the next level of care: rehabilitation through inpatient, outpatient, or at home care.
