Hip Replacement Surgery
Severe hip arthritis can interfere with everyday life, complicating even simple actions like walking. If nonsurgical treatment does not adequately relieve hip pain, hip replacement surgery may be an option. During this procedure, the damaged portions of the hip are replaced with prosthetic components designed to improve alignment and function.
Dr. Tiberi offers different options and approaches to hip replacement surgery based on each patient’s needs. He has specialized training in advanced techniques such as anterior hip replacement, minimally invasive hip replacement, and robotic-arm assisted hip replacement.
Dr. Tiberi and his team will work with you to ensure that you are well-informed of your options and are able to make decisions that are best for you. For many patients with severe hip arthritis, hip replacement surgery can reduce pain and restore function in the affected hip.Learn more about Hip Replacement with Dr. Tiberi »
Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee arthritis can make it difficult for you to stay active. As arthritis progresses, exercise can become difficult and painful, and you may even have trouble with everyday activities like walking and standing. If knee arthritis affects your everyday life and prevents you from participating in your favorite activities, knee replacement surgery may be an option.
Dr. Tiberi specializes in several advanced techniques for knee replacement surgery, including robotic-arm assisted partial and total knee replacement and ACL-preserving knee replacement. After examining your knee, Dr. Tiberi will go over all of your options to help you choose what is best for you.
Although knee replacement surgery will not allow you to do anything you could not do with a healthy knee, many patients find that surgery is helpful in managing pain and restoring function in the knee. This improvement helps them in their daily lives and helps them to stay active for many years to come.
What to Expect: Preparing for Surgery & Recovery
Preparing for hip or knee replacement surgery can be an overwhelming process for patients. Dr. Tiberi believes that better preparation leads to better results in recovery. To help his patients prepare for surgery, he offers a smartphone and tablet app, PeerWell, to help patients prepare in the weeks leading up to surgery.The app features daily modules, which Dr. Tiberi can customize based on your needs. These modules help patients gradually prepare for surgery, covering topics such as:
- Pain Management
- Anxiety Reduction
- Pre-Surgery Arrangements
When patients are well-prepared for the recovery process before surgery, they are able to place more focus on physical therapy and taking care of themselves. Physical therapy is a critical part of the recovery process because it helps patients improve range of motion and flexibility of the new joint, and it also strengthens the muscles surrounding the joint for added support.What to Expect with Knee Replacement Surgery »
