Please use this site to explore therapies that may provide you with an alternative to surgery or, at the very least, alleviate your pain while you’re waiting for an operation, to learn about the promising new area of computer-assisted minimally invasive joint reconstruction, and to correspond with other patients.
Of course the information on this site should not replace a consultation with a medical specialist, but I hope it inspires you to seek the treatment you need to regain an active lifestyle.
