ORA MAKES JOINT SURGERY
OPTIONS A JOINT DECISION
An Orthopedic Surgeon at ORA Orthopedics Provides
Comprehensive Care for Joint Pain in the Quad Cities
ORA Orthopedics welcomes you to consult with an orthopedic surgeon if chronic joint pain is preventing you from living life to the fullest. Our Total Joint Center of Excellence treats residents in Bettendorf, IA, Moline, IL, Davenport, IA, and surrounding communities in the Quad Cities area who are ready to find lasting solutions to their joint discomfort caused by arthritis, trauma or simply by years of wear and tear.
The surgeons at ORA Orthopedics’ Total Joint Center of Excellence have specialized training and extensive experience performing ankle, shoulder, hip and knee joint replacement surgeries, as well as revision procedures. Candidates for joint replacement are patients whose condition has not or cannot be improved by more conservative forms of treatment, such as physical therapy, joint injections and medication. We encourage you to consult with an ORA orthopedic surgeon about your options. We understand the hesitations associated with joint replacement surgery, as such your orthopedic surgeon will address any concerns you may have. Surgery is always considered a last option at ORA Orthopedics, but we also understand that surgery is often a solution to improve our patient’s quality of life.
Enhancements in the durability and comfort of joint implants, as well as reductions in the invasiveness of surgical techniques, have simplified the joint replacement process. When you turn to ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, your orthopedic surgeon will carefully explain the risks and benefits of a joint replacement and will be your partner in the decision-making process. Your satisfaction and well-being is always our main focus, as it has been since our founding in 1963.
Contact ORA Orthopedics today to schedule an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon at our practice. We are proud to be the largest and most comprehensive provider of orthopedic care in the Quad Cities.
