According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, more than 1 million joint replacements are performed in the U.S. each year. At Wellstone Health Partners, we provide comprehensive orthopedic care in association with Seton Medical Center Harker Heights. You shouldn’t have to live with joint pain, which is why our orthopedic surgeons offer treatments for various orthopedic injuries and conditions, including joint replacement surgery for the hip, knee, and shoulder. We also offer sports medicine care and treatments for back pain. No matter what type of orthopedic condition you have, our doctors are prepared to provide you with the compassionate care you deserve.
According to the United States Bone & Joint Initiative, musculoskeletal diseases affect more than one out of every two persons in the U.S. age 18 and over, and nearly three out of four people age 65 and over. Trauma, back pain and arthritis are also the three most common musculoskeletal conditions reported.
Our orthopedic center provides care for advanced, end-stage joint disease caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory joint problems. We also offer treatments for previous joint injuries, joint infections, and rare conditions that cause chronic joint pain. Our orthopedic clinic is also equipped to provide sports medicine care for patients with sports-related injuries.
Our skilled orthopedic surgeons provide total and partial replacement surgery for the knee, hip, and shoulder, but we also offer general orthopedic treatments and care for sports-related injuries. Candidates who qualify for surgery are those who have exhausted non-surgical treatment options but continue to experience functional decline and disabling pain that affects their work, everyday life, or ability to sleep.
