Move free ​from pain

Nothing hampers your freedom like joint pain. That can mean anything from stiffness on the tennis court to shooting pains when you pick up your grandchild. Simple chores become difficult or even impossible if you can’t move or rest without pain.

Life is too important and enjoyable to let the discomfort get in the way. The good news is there’s a solution. We provide procedures in joint repair and replacement that can help reduce or eliminate pain, return normal function and help you regain your mobility.

Start moving toward a more active, pain-free lifestyle by talking to one of the orthopedic specialists at St. Mary’s Medical Center.

Live a pain-free life

Maintaining independence and mobility is critical as we live longer, more active lives. That’s why total knee replacement surgery has become one of the most common operations nationwide. Whether you seek pain relief through a total joint replacement or treatment for stiffness caused by arthritis, our state-of-the-art orthopedic procedures will have you up and moving freely in no time.

Expert care for lasting results

For conditions related to the spine and joint, the quality of care you receive can impact your long-term health. If you suffer from joint, back or sports-related pain, we can provide minimally invasive solutions including physical therapy and medication. If you and your doctor agree that surgery is the best option, we use some of the most innovative techniques that help reduce scarring and may shorten your recovery time.
