Total Joint Replacement

If chronic joint pain is keeping you from doing the things you love, the time might be right for a total joint replacement. Our board certified orthopedic surgeons look to minimally invasive and non-surgical options whenever possible. But, sometimes, a total joint replacement is the preferred approach to relieving pain and restoring quality of life. If you and your doctor decide that joint-replacement surgery is right for you, Evangelical is here for you, before, during and after surgery.
