Joint Replacement

A common candidate for total joint replacement is someone who suffers from chronic pain due to wear and tear from years of constant use (osteoarthritis). In other people, rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic illness, sports injury or trauma may also present problems for which joint replacement could be a beneficial solution. The orthopedic surgeons in St. Louis affiliated with Des Peres Hospital are specially trained to evaluate and treat hip and knee problems. Their goal is to help relieve your pain and restore your mobility and freedom of movement.

Spine Treatment

Neck, arm, back and leg pain resulting from injury, chronic degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis may be treated without surgery. However, if pain is not resolved with conservative treatment or problems such as weakness or loss of sensation occur, our orthopedic spine surgeons may recommend surgery to help alleviate the symptoms.
