Most of the people that we take care of with joint replacement have been dealing with pain for a long period of time. It’s sort of become part of who they are. They’ve taken different pain medications or tried different braces and they become frustrated because they can’t do the things that they want to do anymore. They come to us when they reach a point that it’s time for a change, and they’re willing to go through a surgery to bring that change about.
