Innovation in total joint replacement
Total joint replacement surgeries have dramatically improved due to innovations such as instruments customized to the patient’s body, improved implant materials, computer navigation and surgical robotics. This means reduced surgical time, improved results and shorter hospital stays.
A variety of pain control techniques combining medications and nerve blocks are increasingly being used for total joint replacements to minimize early postoperative pain as well as minimize side effects related to opioid use.
At NAH, we use all of these available options to improve our patient experience, obtain optimal results and bring more cost-effective care to our community.
