More than 40 million Americans have been diagnosed with arthritis. This crippling disease can cause stiffness, swelling, and severe joint pain, leading to a loss of motion and mobility. The good news is that innovative designs, gentler surgical techniques, and advancements in pain management have significantly reduced post-surgery down-time and rehabilitation.
Dr. Turner is one of the area’s foremost joint replacement experts. He has introduced several cutting-edge techniques to Cowlitz County. He has performed more than 7,500 surgeries during his career.
