What causes joint pain?
Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones in a joint to deteriorate. The result is painful. As bone begins to rub against bone, pain increases, and loss of movement accelerates. Many people experience this discomfort for years, mistakenly believing that they are “too young” to suffer from joint problems or that “nothing can be done” to help.

What is joint replacement surgery?
Joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which a worn out or injured joint is replaced with a new, artificial joint. Depending on the patient’s medical situation, lifestyle, age, and other factors, the type of surgery and materials used will vary. Valley Medical Center’s surgeons carefully assess the procedure and materials most appropriate to each patient’s unique needs.

How common is hip or knee replacement?
More than 1 million Americans have a hip or knee replaced each year. The Joint Center at Valley Medical Center performed nearly 1,000 surgeries last year alone.

An acclaimed model for best practices and recently celebrating our 10th anniversary, The Joint Center is led by nationally recognized surgeons in procedures, implant design and research, along with our team of specialized joint replacement nurses and therapists.

State-of-the-art surgical techniques and implant selection, brand new facilities on a dedicated floor in our South Tower, attentive care and personalized therapy, private rooms and the success of more than 5,000 surgeries since it was opened make The Joint Center your top choice for joint replacement.
