Joint Replacement Brings Pain Relief and Increased Mobility

Surgery can reduce or eliminate chronic joint pain and restore movement lost to injury, wear and tear or disease.

Considering your condition, age, activity level and the range of options available, your surgeon will create a customized care plan.

Pain after joint replacement surgery varies from person to person. At Holland Hospital, we are committed to keeping you as comfortable as possible utilizing the latest medications and techniques throughout your recovery. We employ a "multi-modal" approach to pain management. This means we attack the pain from many different angles to help keep your pain at a manageable level and continue your participation in rehabilitation activities.

Different anesthesia techniques are used including a variety of pain medications, anti-inflammatory medications and medications to relieve muscle spasms. We also incorporate non-medication techniques to help manage pain.
