Orthopedic Surgery in Vincennes, IN

When medications, physical therapy and other non-surgical techniques aren’t enough to resolve your pain from an orthopedic condition, it might be time to pursue other therapies, including orthopedic surgery. With specialization in joint replacements, arthroscopic procedures, and sports medicine, our expert orthopedic surgeons are highly skilled and ready to put their decades of combined experience to use for you. Our team also offers the latest joint replacement techniques and technology with the anterior hip approach and knee and hip replacements using Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery. Both of these advanced approaches to joint replacement offer a less invasive surgery, faster recovery time and better outcome. With our new state-of-the-art center in Vincennes, care continues post-surgery with physical therapy available on-site to ensure the best possible outcomes for every patient.

It’s important to know that even though you’ve been referred to an orthopedic surgeon, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll end up needing orthopedic surgery. That’s because orthopedic surgeons always ensure all nonsurgical treatment avenues have been taken before recommending surgical treatment as the best course for you.

Recovery After Orthopedic Surgery

Healing from orthopedic surgery depends on several factors. Ultimately, you can aid in your own recovery by adhering to your doctor’s post-operative recovery plan and going to physical therapy to kickstart healing. Most orthopedic surgeries require postoperative physical or occupational therapy to restore strength and regain joint mobility, particularly for those who are very physically active. Your surgeon will discourage long-term reliance on painkillers after surgery, as these medications are potentially habit-forming and can be harmful. You will likely be given a short-term prescription for pain relief medication during early recovery.
