Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
La Peer Health Systems is pleased to announce the launch of http://www.JointSurgeryMD.com, a new website for the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence, a sub-division of the Beverly Hills surgery center dedicated to the treatment of knee joint, hip joint, and shoulder joint replacements.
The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence is primarily focused on the use of joint replacement surgery as a highly effective long-term solution to debilitating joint pain. This new website serves as an educational resource for patients and individuals who wish to learn more about the treatment of joint degeneration, from diagnosis and symptomatic management to surgical options and rehabilitation.
“Our goal at the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence is to provide life-changing treatments for patients who have reduced their activity due to joint pain or mobility concerns,” explained Dr. Steven Meier, renowned orthopedic surgeon and co-director of the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence.
Joint degeneration can affect individuals of all ages and is often the result of traumatic injury, osteoarthritis, inflammatory disease, or genetic predisposition. Preliminary treatment involves managing pain and slowing progression of the disease through medication, rest, and physical therapy. Unfortunately, many patients experience increasing pain and limited mobility over time, despite conservative therapy.
Joint replacement involves removing damaged bone or tissue and replacing it with an advanced prosthetic joint. These artificial implants are designed to closely mimic the natural anatomy and feel of the joint. After several months of rehabilitation, patients can return to the activities that they love with little or no restrictions.
“With recent advances in surgical techniques and prosthetic devices, we can now perform some joint replacements on an outpatient basis,” said Dr. Jason Snibbe, co-director of the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence. “This has tremendous benefits for patients, both immediately after surgery and throughout the recovery process.”
The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence is directed by renowned orthopedic surgeons Steven W. Meier, MD and Jason Snibbe, MD. The other talented orthopedic surgeons perform a variety of joint replacement and preservation procedures at our Beverly Hills surgery center. These hip, knee, and shoulder specialists include Rajan Patel, MD; Eric Millstein, MD; Andrew Weiss, MD; Sonu Ahluwalia, MD; Peter Newton, MD; Melvin Nutig, MD; Neil Ghodadra, MD; and Joseph Isaacson, MD.
