Joints are located throughout the body were two or more bones meet. Replacements can be necessary for a variety of reasons, but most often they are necessary to treat patients with severe arthritis.

There are over 100 different types of arthritis that can cause damage to the cartilage that protects joints and facilitates easy movement. Approximately 46 million Americans have some form of arthritis, that is one out of every five people. Total joint replacements are needed when the natural joint is too damaged for a surgeon to repair adequately with less invasive techniques. The trained specialists at Brielle Orthopedics utilize the latest techniques to provide the highest quality of care to patients suffering from joint damage to the knee, hip, shoulder, and ankle.
