According to the Arthritis Foundation more than 50 million Americans suffer from arthritis. Arthritis is a non-discriminatory, complex family of musculoskeletal disorders consisting or more than 100 different diseases or conditions; it affects people of all race, age, and gender. Non-operative treatment options include bracing, medications, and injection however, once arthritis has reached its end-stage and non-operative options have been exhausted, the best chance for relieving pain and restoring loss of function and mobility often lies in joint replacement surgery.
AOC's Joint Replacement Team specializes in the replacement of the hip and knee for end-stage arthritis. Hip replacements and knee replacements are two of the most successful procedures in medicine for relieving pain. Our two fellowship-trained joint specialists, Dr. Matthew D. Barber and Dr. Michael L. Granberry, are trained in the most current technology available for their patients suffering from joint pain. They strive to help their patients reach and maintain the highest possible level of function and pain relief through non-operative and operative care. If Dr. Barber or Dr. Granberry determines that joint replacement is the patient's best course of action their staff of nurses, physician assistants and physical therapists will assist the patient and their family throughout the process, coordinating care in and out of the hospital and through their rehabilitation.
