Arthritis, a condition that irritates or destroys a joint, is a common orthopedic problem. As the disease worsens, patients experience increasing pain, weakness, stiffness, and deformity. Board-certified physicians at CHI St. Luke’s Health use the most advanced technology to diagnose and treat arthritis.
When surgery is necessary, board-certified orthopedic surgeons offer patients detailed treatment plans for before and after surgery. In many cases, surgeons can speed recovery by using minimally invasive surgery and muscle-sparing techniques. Physicians, nurses, and therapists work as a team to provide a continuum of care to return patients to daily activity as quickly as possible.
Patients also benefit from outpatient physical and occupational therapy programs offered by CHI St. Luke’s Health.
