Arthritis

Arthritis can be a consequence of age, inflammatory disease, or previous joint injury. It can be one of the most devastating of all non-fatal disorders. Problems related to arthritis are seen with increasing frequency as the population maintains a more active lifestyle in senior years. The effects of arthritis are also manifested at younger ages, especially following sports or work injuries.

Dr. Byrd’s training in joint replacement surgery and sports medicine uniquely prepares him for managing arthritic problems. With proper guidance, many respond conservatively. Often a team approach is necessary for long-term management including primary physicians, rheumatologists and physical and occupational therapists. Surgical options range from simple arthroscopy to complete joint replacement. It is important that the surgeon be knowledgeable and versed in all options to provide the most complete perspective. Dr. Byrd focuses on joint preserving technology and, when necessary, incorporates surgeons specializing in complex joint replacement and revision into the treatment team.
