Debilitating joint pain and arthritis can dramatically erode a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, joint replacement surgery – a time-tested procedure – offers real hope for pain reduction and return to activity.
Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of a joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis which is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.
Bighorn Medical Center physicians offer a wide range of options, including hip, knee and shoulder replacement, as well as procedures involving the elbow, hand, wrist and ankle.
“The folks (in the Bighorn Basin) deserve the best level of orthopedic care in the world,” Dr. Mark Ryzewicz says. “That highest standard of care, both personally and medically, remains my commitment.”
