Q:

How long does a shoulder replacement last?

A:

The life span on a shoulder replacement is about 10-15 years. This timeframe has improved over the past 20 years with changes to procedures and materials used. You can expect to have a potential decrease in the range of motion around your shoulder joint after replacement surgery, but many patients report good shoulder strength and a decrease in pain.

Q:

What is osteoarthritis of the knee?

A:

Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that involves the joints. In the knee, osteoarthritis develops when the cartilage that cushions the joint wears away and the bone of the upper and lower leg rub against each other where they meet in the knee. If you are having pain in your knee and think you might have osteoarthritis, you should speak with your family doctor.

Q:

What is the cause of trigger finger?

A:

Trigger finger occurs when the A-1 Pulley becomes thickened, making it harder for the flexor tendon to glide through it as the finger bends. Over time, the flexor tendon may develop a small nodule just proximal to the A-1 Pulley. This nodule can become stuck as it enters and exits the tunnel, causing a catching or snapping sensation, which is often painful. The finger can become stuck in a bent position
