Over time, age takes a toll on our bodies. Naturally, degenerative conditions like arthritis start to make your joints feel achy and painful. This pain can be so severe at times that you may be unable to do the things that you love. Abilene Sports Medicine and Orthopedics is here to help you find joy rather than pain in the activities you once loved.
Our surgeons at Abilene Sports Medicine and Orthopedics begin with conservative management, prescribing medication, physical therapy, or improved nutrition, to manage pain and attempt to slow the wearing away of the joint’s cushion. When this approach is no longer effective, joint replacement surgery may be recommended. As with all surgery, there are always risks to consider.
New surgical techniques using smaller incisions can offer shorter hospital stays and recovery periods. The physicians at Abilene Sports Medicine are at the forefront of these advances. However, no one technique is right for everyone. At Abilene Sports Medicine and Orthopedics, a careful examination and consultation always precede any recommendation.

For many of our patients, joint replacement is the solution for pain and decreased mobility. Joint replacement procedures do require some recovery time, they are normally only considered after all other non-surgical options have been discussed and/or attempted. Normally, joint surgery provides significant and wonderful results for the majority of patients. This type of procedure should be done by a specialist in the field; particularly in the field of the patient’s exact need, such as a hip specialist or a knee specialist. Our orthopedic doctors have years of experience and are ready to help you on your joint replacement surgery journey. If you experience pain in any of your joints due to physical activities such as walking, running, and climbing stairs, it may be time to have our orthopedic doctors access your case.
