Am I A Candidate for Joint Replacement?

Joint replacement surgery is now minimally invasive and allows faster recovery with fewer complications. But what are your options and when is the right time to turn to surgery? Answer the following questions to know if surgery is ideal for you.

  • I am 71 years old and Dr. Emmerson replaced my right knee in May of this year. After 6 weeks of physical therapy I could walk and undertake other activities easily...

  • Dr. Emmerson is the complete package, an empathetic listener, a highly skilled surgeon and an honest clinician. My successful hip operation gave me back my active life. Thank you Dr. Emmerson!

  • I had hip replacement surgery with Dr. Emmerson and was walking without a walker in five days. It was almost painless; I didn't take any pain medicine after I left the hospital. It has been three months and I have resumed all activities including horseback riding!!
