Treatment for Damaged Bones
Bone, joint, and cartilage damage can be extremely uncomfortable. Titusville
Area Hospital offers a wide variety of orthopedic services to treat various
conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. This includes treatments
for muscles, nerves, joints, tendons, and more. Below you can find a brief
overview of our orthopedic services.
Hip, Knee & Joint Replacements
Whether from age or injury, overtime certain parts of the body can give
out. When this happens it can be painful to move, and the area could become
stiff or swollen. If left untreated, worse problems can occur, such as
infection or damage to connecting bones and ligaments. One of the most
common causes of damaged joints is severe arthritis.
Joint replacements remove the damaged body part and replace it with an
artificial substitute made of metal, plastic, or ceramic material. These
replacements should provide the patient with improved range of motion
and eliminate the pain. A typical replacement lasts 10 to 15 years and
may need to be upgraded.
