Do you have questions?
We have answers.

Pain in your hip or knee may come from an injury that happened a long time ago or from a recent trauma, such as a car accident or a fall. You may also experience pain simply as a result of the natural aging process. As we age, the cartilage that cushions our joints wears thin and the bones may begin to rub together or press on surrounding nerves.

Only a doctor can accurately diagnose your condition by performing a physical exam, reviewing your health history, and looking at results from tests, such as an X-ray or MRI. If surgery is a recommended option, your doctor will be able to answer all of your questions and help you know what to expect before, during and after surgery.

If you've been told you are a candidate for joint replacement, you can also benefit from an educational class to better prepare for your upcoming hip and knee surgery. Call 484.580.1070 to register.

In some cases, physical therapy can help alleviate your pain. You may also benefit from taking medication that blocks the sensation of pain or helps relax your muscles. Oftentimes patients benefit from a combination of physical therapy and medication. However, certain patients may need to avoid physical therapy altogether as it may aggravate pain and inflammation. One of our hip and knee surgeons can review your medical history and condition, and help determine a treatment path that's best for you.

Recovery varies from person to person. Generally speaking, however, the better your current health and activity level, the more quickly you'll be back on your feet enjoying the things you like to do in life. It also helps to take a positive and very patient attitude towards recovery. Being patient yet persevering can make a tremendous difference in your first weeks and months of recovery. We work with patients to begin rehabilitation therapy on the same day as surgery. The sooner you start moving, the sooner your recovery begins!

This also depends on your current health condition and activity level, but it may also depend on how your individual surgery went. Before your surgery, it helps to have a reliable friend or family member in mind who can help you when you return home if you need extra assistance. In some cases, we may recommend someone be with you for the first few days following your discharge from the hospital. In general, it can be quite helpful to have someone managing your household tasks during the first few days and weeks at home–so you can simply focus on healing and recovery.
