Watch as our patients discuss the issues they confronted when considering whether or not to go forward with joint replacement surgery. Our surgeons discuss how this is an elective surgery and it is up to the patient to fully commit to the surgery if they expect to have a possible outcome. They also share concerns about waiting too long to have surgery, as chronic pain becomes an overwhelming constant in the patient’s quality of life. Arthritic joint pain is not something you can take a pill and make go way and letting it further progress over time will impact your ability to recover form surgery.
