Important information for patients
Information displayed on this site is intended for Australian residents only. This information is not designed to replace the advice of your doctor or healthcare professional. The information presented is for educational purposes only. Stryker is not dispensing medical advice. Please speak to your doctor or orthopaedic surgeon to decide if joint replacement surgery is right for you. Only your medical professional can make the medical judgment which products and treatments are right for your own individual condition. As with any surgery, joint replacement carries certain risks. Your surgeon will explain all of the possible complications of the surgery, as well as side effects. Additionally, the lifetime of a joint replacement is not infinite and varies with each individual. Individual results between patients may vary. Each patient will experience a different post-operative activity level, depending on their own individual clinical factors. Your doctor or orthopaedic surgeon will help counsel you about how to best maintain activities in order to potentially prolong the lifetime of the device. Such strategies include not engaging in high-impact activities, such as running, as well as maintaining a healthy weight.
