An AVALA Physician will recommend a partial or total joint replacement procedure if a joint is too arthritic or is no longer working. This surgery is recommended if conservative pain relief treatments fail.
AVALA is proud to be one of 12 facilities in the world to offer robotic partial knee, total knee, and total hip replacements. AVALA is the only facility in the state to offer all 3 procedures.
Every patient will recover at a different pace after the procedure. Your physician will likely recommend you start using the new joint very quickly after surgery. You may experience some pain immediately after the procedure because the muscles surrounding the joint may be week from not being used. Physical Therapy and other conservative treatments may be ordered to help with the recovery.
