Pain and discomfort will eventually drive sufferers to seek remedies whether through physical therapy, pharmaceuticals, stem cell therapy, or necessary surgery. Knowing which of these options is the right fit for any given patient is what drives many to seek out the expertise and consultation of Dr. Shivajee Nallamothu, Chief of Orthopedic Surgery and Director of the Orthopedic Residency Program at McLaren Oakland. Dr. Nallamothu encourages patients to consider all their options and to be a partner in the process. Known for his skill in performing double knee replacements at the same time, Dr. Nallamothu is a valiant partner in the process. “I consider the patient’s needs and life situation before we jump to surgery,” Dr. Nallamothu says. “I teach my residents to consider everything, including aftercare and returning full functionality, always taking the route of what’s best for the patient.” Dr. Nallamothu encourages all those who are dealing with the restrictions and limitations caused by joint pain to consider an evaluation with a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. The path to recovery is easier than you think. For more information, tune in to WJR 760 News talk radio to hear Dr. Nallamothu discuss orthopedic matters on his monthly show.
