A Word About Your Hips and Knees

Your hips and knees work hard for you everyday of your life. They help you walk, run, skip, dance, work and even stand. However, the routine motions that many of us take for granted eventually take their toll.

As you age, your joints may start to show some wear and tear, eventually leading to pain. Suddenly, hip or knee pain can prevent you from leading a normal, enjoyable lifestyle. Suddenly, hip or knee replacement surgery becomes a viable method to ending your pain and suffering so you can lead a normal, active lifestyle.

Considering Hip or Knee Surgery?

If you are investigating knee or hip surgery as a viable alternative to eliminating joint pain, you should consider being part of the Joint Adventures Program at Simi Valley Hospital. The orthopedic surgeons participating in Joint Adventures, as well as our rehabilitation specialists, all understand the many problems associated with hip and knee disorders.

As a member of the Joint Adventures program, patients having knee or hip surgery will be expertly guided through the pre and post surgical process. You will also enjoy many of the free amenities associated with this new program.
