Your Trusted Joint Replacement Specialists in Allentown, PA

If you’ve been living for a prolonged period of time with an orthopedic condition of the joint, such as arthritis, you’re likely experiencing severe pain and loss of motion. Both of these symptoms can make moving through your daily life extremely difficult, even to the point where it feels impossible. That’s why OAA offers as many solutions to our patients as possible, including cutting-edge, minimally invasive treatment techniques that you may not find anywhere else.

Many of the patients we treat have been struggling with arthritis, a condition which affects the cartilage in the joints of the knees, elbows, shoulders and more. The two most common types of arthritis are:

  • Osteoarthritis, which occurs when the cartilage between the two bones in one (or more) of your joints becomes worn away or damaged. This is the most common type of arthritis and often affects adults as they get older.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory disorder which causes your immune system to attack the cartilage in your joints. 

If you do require joint replacement surgery for arthritis, you can trust the surgeons at OAA to offer the least-invasive option possible to reduce your risk factors, postoperative pain, and overall recovery time. If you have questions, want to learn more, or are ready to get started on your treatment plan, schedule an appointment with OAA today.
