OS3: Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement

Have you ever been in so much pain and stiff, that you have trouble with your mobility? Well, these symptoms could indicate that you may have an issue with your joints. Joints can be damaged by arthritis, conditions, or injuries. For many people, hip and knee pain may ultimately need to be resolved with joint replacement surgery.

Arthritis, or simply years of use, may cause a lot of wear and tear on your joints. Bones are alive, and they need blood to be healthy, grow, and repair themselves. Someone with a degenerative joint may experience a host of complications, such as limited blood flow, pain, stiffness, and swelling. If not treated properly or early enough, there is a good chance that your orthopedist may tell you that you need to have joint replacement surgery. The good news, is that joint replacement surgery has progressed leaps and bounds in the last couple of decades, and is regarded as the most successful surgery in the field Orthopedics.

There are millions of people around the world who suffer from crippling joint disorders and pain. Joint replacement surgery is often the remedy for people to come back to an active and productive lifestyle. The present day joint replacement surgery is well advanced, with better understanding of human anatomy, refined surgical techniques, and technological advancement in accuracy and design of implants - to ensure complete and painless mobility (i.e., computer aided navigation, and robotic surgery).
