What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is a disease that affects your joints, causing tenderness, swelling, and inflammation. These symptoms often get worse with age. Arthritis is most common in the knees, feet, lower back, hands, and hips.
Over time, your joints become worn down. This increases the risk of developing arthritis, especially osteoarthritis.
Some forms of arthritis like rheumatoid arthritis run in families. This means if a family member had arthritis, you may also develop it.
When you’re overweight, your body tends to put a lot of stress on your weight-bearing joints. This can aggregate wear and tear and your risk of being arthritic.
Injuries can cause joint damage that leads to the development of arthritis.
Some jobs require heavy lifting or the use of repetitive movements. This can stress your joints which can lead to arthritis.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Surgery can be done to fuse two or more bones permanently and immobilize your joint or to replace your joint. Our minimally invasive surgery involves shorter operating times and faster recovery with very few incisions.
This can help improve the strength and range of motion of joints and even lessen arthritis pain.
