Delaying treatment, in some cases, leads to:
- decreased mobility
- reduced activity
- reduced surgical benefit
All of these can contribute to a decline in your overall health.
A report recently published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found that delaying surgery can deprive
patients of the surgery’s full benefits. But when surgery is done too soon, patients put themselves at risk and
may wind up needing another replacement.
You may not yet require surgery, or you may not be ready for a knee replacement but could benefit from
other treatment options. The goal is to help you live your life to the fullest without limitations.
Our specialists will work with you to determine optimal timing for any recommended treatments. We are
here to provide you with information and recommendations, but the decision is always yours.
Conservative options are always exhausted prior to recommending surgery. The physicians at Louisville
Orthopaedic Clinic always have your best interests in mind.
Don’t delay! Set up an appointment today to learn how we can help you live without limitations and benefit
the most from treatment. We continue to follow all CDC guidelines to provide a safe experience.
