Will joint reconstruction benefit me?
Only a qualified orthopedic specialist can determine if you’ll benefit from joint reconstruction.
During your initial consultation, your Nevada Orthopedic & Spine Center provider reviews your health history and asks about your symptoms. Afterward, they conduct a physical exam and test your joint’s strength, flexibility, and range of motion. They also order diagnostic imaging like X-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan.
If the team determines that your joint is too diseased or damaged to heal on its own, they develop a custom surgical treatment plan. Often, that includes removing your diseased or damaged tissues and replacing them with prosthetics.
