Orthopedic Joint Replacement Surgery For Braham Residents

Specialty Care. Close to Home.

Chronic joint pain in Sandstone holding you back? At Welia Health, you’re not alone. Our specialized orthopedic team, right here in east-central Minnesota, is dedicated to helping you find relief and get back to living life to the fullest.

Struggling with stiffness, limping, or limited range of motion? These symptoms, often caused by injuries, overuse, or arthritis, can dramatically impact your daily life. At Welia Health, we understand that joint pain can make even simple activities like walking or climbing stairs a challenge.

That’s why we offer a comprehensive approach to joint pain treatment. Our experienced orthopedic surgeons have a proven track record of success in performing hip, knee, and shoulder replacements, providing you with world-class care close to home. But surgery isn’t always the answer. We explore all conservative treatment options first, like medication, physical therapy, and injections, to see if they can address your pain effectively.

Whether you opt for surgery or not, you’ll benefit from our personalized care and integrated team approach. We collaborate with experts in sports medicine, physical therapy, and rehabilitation to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals, ensuring a smooth and successful recovery.

When it comes to joint disorders, in addition to pain, you may be experiencing other symptoms such as:
muscle weakness
limited range of motion

All of these symptoms can dramatically impact the quality of life for those with joint conditions. You may find it difficult to perform everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs, grocery shopping, or even getting in and out of bed.

Why does this happen?

Joints can become damaged over time from injuries, overuse, or conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. When less invasive, non-surgical treatment methods do not bring significant relief, the best option to alleviate chronic or reoccurring symptoms may be joint replacement surgery.

What is joint replacement?

Joint replacement surgery is considered the last line of treatment when everything else –including medications and physical therapy – hasn’t helped. When performing joint replacement surgery, damaged cartilage is shaved off and a metal replacement is put in its place. The most common joints replaced are the hips, knees, and shoulders.

For Braham residents, Welia Health orthopedic surgeons have the expertise you want and expect when considering a hip, knee, or shoulder replacement.

You can rely on Welia Health to provide outstanding orthopedic surgical care when surgery is the best option for you to regain mobility and return to the activities you love. Welia Health’s orthopedic team works closely with our expert teams in sports medicine, physical therapy, and rehabilitation specialists to provide compassionate care throughout the recovery process.
