Our physicians and care teams are committed to finding the right treatment that fits your lifestyle and desires. Non-surgical interventions which can consist of anti-inflammatory and pain medications, as well as physical and occupational therapy are often the first line treatments for painful joints.  Joint replacement is a personal decision that is best made by the patient in consultation with an orthopedic surgeon specializing in joint replacement surgery.


Not all patients require surgical intervention. Learn more about healthy joint living and joint replacement by attending one of our free seminars.


Joint replacement surgery at the Cottage Center for Orthopedics is performed by board-certified orthopedic surgeons who have specific training and education in this surgery.  The affiliated physicians of the joint replacement program at the Cottage Center for Orthopedics have years of post-fellowship training. Altogether, they do more joint replacement surgeries than any other facility on the Central Coast of California.
