What is a Total Joint Program?

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure(s) in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic, or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.

Dr. Martin is a highly experienced Orthopedic Specialist who offers a comprehensive approach to patient care with the goal of helping patients regain their mobility.

Martin Orthopedic and Wellness Total Joint Program

Our Approach to Healing

Dr. Martin believes in a comprehensive approach to managing orthopedic care. It’s important to know the symptoms, form a proper diagnosis, formulate treatment options and provide ongoing care to help our patients reach optimal health.

When arthritis, an injury, or other condition causes damage to the cartilage that lines the ends of bones, joint pain or disability occurs.

  • Persistent or chronic joint pain
  • Loss of motion
  • Difficulty sleeping

It’s important to get a proper determination of the underlying conditions that could be causing the pain.

  • Physical examination
  • X Ray or MRI
  • Arthroscopy

Treatment of joint pain should focus not only on the pain but also on the affected activities and functions.

  • Supportive aids
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery (Total Joint Replacement)

From diagnosis to treatment, including pre- and post-surgery, there are several ways to maintain good bone health.

  • Participate in focused physical therapy
  • Eat a balanced diet for fasting healing
  • Maintain healthy weight to help take stress off the joint
