Am I a candidate for joint preservation of the shoulder, the hip, or the knee?

If any one of the following statements are familiar to you in your efforts to seek relief from chronic joint pain, you are a possible candidate for joint preservation surgery.

  • You are unable to do the physical things you enjoy.

  • You have had prior arthroscopy, but your joint remains in pain.

  • You have participated in physical therapy, but to no avail.

  • Your pain medication requirements seem to be increasing.

  • Your pain is constant and is awakening you at night.

  • Because you have complained of pain for so long, friends and family have begun to question if you really are in pain.

  • You have been told you are too young for a joint replacement, or you have avascular necrosis (osteonecrosis) in the hip, the shoulder, or the knee.

  • “Come back to see me when you can no longer tolerate the pain.”

  • “I understand you are in pain, but your x-rays and MRI are normal.”

  • “You have mild arthritis, but the arthritis is not bad enough for your joint to be replaced.”

  • “I can refer you to a pain management doctor for your chronic joint pain.”
