Arthritis is a prevalent condition that affects the hip, knee, and shoulder joints as patients age. Fortunately, Miller Orthopedic Specialists offer various treatments to help alleviate the pain and improve patients’ quality of life.
Arthritis is a common cause of joint pain and stiffness, particularly in older patients. This condition can make it challenging for patients to engage in their desired activities and enjoy their daily lives.
Diagnosis and Treatment
At Miller Orthopedic Specialists, our experienced surgeons specialize in total joint replacement and arthritis. We offer a revolutionary treatment called Iovera, which utilizes the power of cold to reduce pain and the need for painkillers following joint replacement surgery. Lovera blocks targeted nerves that transmit pain signals, providing temporary relief that can last up to three months.
Improving Quality of Life
Lovera is an excellent option for patients seeking a temporary solution to their joint pain without causing permanent nerve damage. By reducing pain, Iovera also limits stiffness after surgery, allowing patients to recover more comfortably and quickly. This can improve patients’ quality of life and allow them to resume their daily activities with less pain and discomfort.
