Don’t Let Carpal Tunnel Make Your Day Difficult

Do your fingers feel numb? Is it hard to write or use a computer mouse? If so, you may benefit from carpal tunnel surgery or carpal tunnel release.

After assessing your needs, we’ll decide if you’re a good candidate for the surgery and schedule an appointment. Contact our orthopedic clinic today to schedule a consultation.

  • Congenital predisposition

Nearly 775,000 Americans have a knee or hip replaced each year. Trust your local orthopedic specialists for total joint replacement in the Tri-Cities, WA areas.


An orthopedic specialist at our hip and knee replacement orthopedic clinic will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. Visit Benton Franklin Orthopedic Associates for:

  • Hip replacement-we perform a total hip replacement when the cartilage covering the surface of the bones and joint is worn away. Bone rubbing against bone causes severe pain and limits motion.
  • Knee replacement-knees joints can be either totally or partially replaced depending on the specific diagnoses and patient’s age. The most common cause of knee cartilage loss is from osteoarthritis. The goal of our knee replacement is to improve movement and eliminate pain.

We value open communication with our patients and will answer all of your questions about the procedure. Contact us today to learn more about our total joint replacement surgeries in Tri-Cities, WA.
