Treat Osteoarthritis to Prevent Pain

Osteoarthritis, the most common condition of the joints, affects nearly 30 million American men and women, according to the Arthritis Foundation. And while it can occur at any age, it is most common in people older than 60.

“However, while osteoarthritis may seem like an inevitable part of aging, it can be treated so you can live with less pain or
possibly no pain at all,” says W. Thomas Gutowski, III, M.D., F.A.A.O.S., board certified in orthopaedic sports medicine and orthopaedic surgery and Medical Director of the Jim Craigie Center for Joint Replacement at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center.

As you age, it’s normal to wake up with joint stiffness or experience episodes of joint pain that last a few days. Joint pain becomes a concern when it doesn’t improve after you’re up and moving for 30 to 60 minutes in the morning, if it is accompanied by fever, redness or swelling, or if it persists for more than a week or for several episodes in a month.

If joint pain is preventing you from being able to perform ordinary tasks at home or work or keeping you from doing the
things you love, it is time to see the doctor.

When joint symptoms are severe and cannot be managed through conservative measures, joint replacement surgery may be necessary.

The Jim Craigie Center for Joint Replacement offers a comprehensive approach to joint replacement surgery including special technology and patient specific guides to help size and place joint components more accurately as well as robotic arm-assisted hip and knee procedures.
