Bone/Joint Injuries and Arthritis

 

Bone and Joint Injuries

Bone and joint pain does not have to restrict your quality of life. If you have a degenerative condition, Dr. Vitolo can explain to you how the option of joint and hip replacement surgery has improved the quality of life for many of his patients by relieving pain and restoring normal movement.

For bone fractures, Dr. Vitolo and his experienced staff can help you with a complete range of treatments and rehabilitation programs to get you up and around as soon as possible. 

Arthritis

Many of Dr. Vitolo’s patients have not had any traumatic injury from athletics or the workplace, but are suffering from ongoing, debilitating chronic conditions. Some of these conditions are the result of advancing age, others may be genetic.

One of the most common chronic conditions that Dr. Vitolo has been treating for many years is arthritis, which is an inflammation in the joints.

The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which causes the cartilage in a joint to become stiff and lose elasticity. 

Although osteoarthritis can occur in almost any joint in the body, it is most prominent in the weight bearing joints of the hips, knees, and spine.
