Hip and knee replacements are known for being painful procedures. After recovery, patients report being more comfortable and in significantly less pain than before knee replacement surgery – however, many are reluctant to have the same procedures done on the other hip or knee.
But, that doesn’t have to be the case. Dr. Hill believes that when properly managed, post-operative pain can be a slight annoyance, but certainly not a reason to discount the benefits of replacing a painful hip or knee.
Dr. Hill has made pain management a priority in his practice. He combines a series of pain relieving medications before, during and after the procedure. His patients find that their pain levels throughout recovery are lower than they had expected and routinely return to have the other hip or knee replaced without hesitation.
During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Hill will explain the medications he uses and discuss proven methods for mitigating post-surgical pain. With less pain, you’ll be able to focus on recovery and get back to normal activities as soon as possible.
