From joint reconstruction to total joint replacement, the team at DFP will have you moving again in no time.

Total joint replacement, is the process of surgically removing an arthritic or damaged joint and replacing it with an artificial joint. Typically this procedure is done on joints where the cartilage is damaged and is causing the patient pain, stiffness, and reduce mobility. The materials DFP uses in joint replacements are specially designed to enable the artificial joint to move just like a normal joint.

DFP implements the latest technology and techniques to reduce the invasiveness of the procedure and maximize the artificial joint’s function and recovery time, allowing for the most positive outcome for each patient.

While diagnosing, our team will help you weigh the pros and cons of our recommended treatment, so you can decide the best solution for your joint pain. If joint reconstruction or total joint replacement is the recommended treatment, we will provide you with the proper information to aid you in preparing for surgery and throughout the recovery process.
