Total Joint Replacement Surgery

Thank you for choosing Dr. Salyapongse and his team for your upcoming surgery. Our goal is to help return you to a higher level of function with your new prosthetic joint.

In the United States, over 600, 000 people elect to have total joint replacement surgery each year. We believe that you play a key role in making your recovery a success.

With this in mind, Dr. Salyapongse and his team have assembled a notebook Your Reference Guide for Total Joint Replacement to provide you with an introduction to joint replacement surgery, a guide for preparation, and a reference for your post-operative rehabilitation. The notebook covers Pre-operative Checklist, Day of Surgery Expectations, Postoperative Care and Activities of Daily Living post-recovery.

Our goal is to involve you and your family in your treatment from start to finish.
