Joint health is a fundamental component of wellness and vitality. However, years of wear and tear can diminish the surrounding cartilage that protects your bones. As more time passes, further degeneration can lead to osteoarthritis, among other complications. In addition, certain injuries could have a long-lasting impact on your joints and cartilage, which may continue worsening.

Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance offers pain management treatment plans for joint degeneration. Since we focus on patient-centered care, we tailor our treatments to each individual, ensuring we can provide the best outcomes.

What We Treat


Our Process

The joint replacement process begins with an initial appointment, the length of which varies based on your condition.

More complex joint-degeneration issues will require more time with your physician, especially if you have multiple musculoskeletal conditions.


Our Process

Most people undergo a joint preservation treatment or joint replacement in Kansas City because of osteoarthritis complications.

Osteoarthritis comes from the wear and tear of the cartilage that surrounds joints. Cartilage plays an important role in how your joints move and feel by creating a layer of protection against direct joint connection.

Therefore, a lack of cartilage can lead to inflammation and joint degeneration.



Our Process

Diagnosing osteoarthritis requires an examination from an orthopedic physician, which may include tests such as X-rays and/or ultrasound.

From there, we can build a treatment plan that works best with your goals and lifestyle.


Our Process

The Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance orthopedic specialists always focus on each individual patient and their concerns before creating a treatment plan. Therefore, during your initial appointment, we will often ask questions such as:

  • Does your pain currently limit you or your activities?
  • Has your pain progressed or worsened recently?
  • Have you noticed any change in your symptoms that has made it more challenging to function?
  • What are your lifestyle goals?
  • How has pain affected those goals?

From there, we can decide whether more conservative osteoarthritis treatments will suffice or whether you would find the most benefit with surgery.

How It Works

Treatment Options

Physical Therapy

A comprehensive joint replacement treatment plan usually includes a referral to a physical or occupational therapist to help regain range of motion, decrease pain, and increase strength in the affected area. Typically, the human body adapts and heals through movement, especially when guided by a trained musculoskeletal expert.

Prescription Medications

Your physician may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications to reduce pain, inflammation, and more. This will depend on your specific needs, symptoms, and other factors surrounding your joint condition.



Pain Injections

Injections directly into the joint can help with arthritis pain. Based on your condition, response to treatment, and your physician’s recommendations, additional injections may be necessary. Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance offers ultrasound-guided injections to visualize the area of concern in real time and optimize your treatment’s effectiveness.

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine options, such as stem cell injections or platelet-rich plasma, can help repair worn or damaged cartilage. This option may work best if you are a younger patient with mild-to-moderate arthritis.


Arthroscopy is a scope-based procedure that can help repair or remove damaged cartilage in or around the joint. This helps prolong the degeneration process and promotes joint preservation.

Joint Replacement

Our Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance physicians only make recommendations for partial or total joint replacement when we have exhausted all other conservative measures, or it is apparent that surgery is the only available solution. This is always a collaborative decision. It’s important you feel empowered to make the best choice for you, with your goals and timelines in mind.
