Orthopedic conditions occur for a number of reasons. You may be a seasoned athlete experiencing overuse or a new athlete who pushes themselves too far. Perhaps you are experiencing pain from the result of a lifetime of daily wear and tear. Either way, you may find yourself "dealing with it" for a period of time until you finally decide to do something. The good news is that in many cases you have options.
The specialists on staff at Texas Health Rockwall have a broad range of experience from non-surgical pain relief to surgical repairs and replacements to help you decide what option is best for you. Their goal is to help uncover the best treatment for your individual situation and preferences so that you can return to your daily activities and those things you enjoy doing. And if surgery is required, you can be reassured that the board-certified surgeons available right here in Rockwall have extensive experience performing some of the most complex procedures on hips, knees, ankles and shoulders; including arthroscopic repair.
The caregivers at Texas Health Rockwall are committed to treat all of our patients as unique individuals, not just as a knee, hip or shoulder. Because each patient is different, with unique needs and expectations, we offer a broad range of treatment options for musculoskeletal disorders and injuries.

There have been many advances in the process of joint replacement in recent years, including improved materials that allow joint replacements to last 20 to 25 years, or longer. Other improvements relate to the overall patient experience, making recovery easier and faster than it used to be. With the use of preoperative nerve blocks, pain pumps and minimally invasive techniques, patients generally recover more quickly, with less pain than in the past.
