  • Many conditions can be treated with arthroscopy instead of standard open surgery.
  • If nonoperative treatment fails, hip replacement is an option to relieve pain and restore function. At Rush, orthopedic surgeons have pioneered ways to perform the surgery that minimize patients’ pain after surgery and enable them to leave the hospital shortly after the procedure.
  • Knee problems such as osteoarthritis (also called degenerative arthritis), rheumatoid arthritis and past injury can cause the bone and cartilage in the joint to wear away. If nonsurgical treatment has failed, knee replacement surgery may be an option for knee pain resulting from these conditions.
  • Physical Therapy

    Physical therapy can help people regain function, independence and quality of life after a stroke, injury or surgical procedure. It can also help people who are experiencing chronic pain or disability.
