Joint Reconstruction

A joint is an inner mechanism of the body where multiple bones meet and allow unique movement. A cushioned layer of cartilage surrounds these joints so the bones don’t grind, rub and, crunch against one another to create pain. Unfortunately, the respective cartilage that cushions these bodily joints wears down with time. Pain and irritation will follow without healthy cartilage protecting the bones’ movement and interaction with one another. Discuss your plan of action with any of our board-certified orthopedic joint reconstruction surgeons at IBJI.

When is Joint Reconstruction Surgery Necessary for Pain Relief

A reconstructive surgery is a beneficial option to help combat any chronic joint pain. This type of surgery is typically conducted on the synovial joints such as: the hip, shoulder, knee, ankle, wrist, and elbow. These joints generally acquire pain from arthritic symptoms, and surgical procedures are often enacted to fix the problem. Minimally invasive joint reconstructive surgery offers a safe alternative for patients with joint pain. The application of this surgery creates a greater opportunity to regain strength, flexibility, durability, and confidence in your joint movement. Maintaining healthy bones and joints are often dictated by outside factors, so to fight against the elements of time and other unforeseen causes, let IBJI find the best solution for your body.
