CENTER VALLEY, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Aesculap Implant Systems, LLC, a leading provider of orthopaedic instruments and implants, launched today www.soactivesofast.com, a website dedicated to educating people suffering from debilitating joint pain. The new interactive website, www.soactivesofast.com, and accompanying printed literature present material that educates about the causes, symptoms, diagnoses and treatment options for joint pain as well as featuring four joint replacement patients and their recovery stories.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, in the next 20 years the percentage of adults diagnosed with arthritis is expected to reach 25% of the population. Aesculap Implant Systems is dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients with joint pain by helping them gain a better understanding of their condition, their options and through cutting-edge joint replacement products. “At Aesculap it is our mission to empower the patient to understand the disease that causes their joint pain and what options are available to treat them – both surgical and non-surgical. Our goal is to see patients living life to the fullest and overcoming this pain in the least invasive way possible,” said Christian Gabriel, Director of Orthopaedic Product Division for Aesculap Implant Systems.

The interactive website, www.soactivesofast.com, features the stories of four patients that had successful joint replacement surgery and were able to return to normal activities and reclaim their lives. The website also provides valuable information to prepare the patient for appointments with their doctor such as the knee and hip joint anatomy and common diseases that could affect these joints including causes, symptoms and the diagnostic process. Additionally, the materials review treatment options such as non-surgical pain management strategies and in-depth information about surgical joint replacement procedures including a Frequently Asked Questions section. “In combination with new joint replacement technologies, such as computer-assisted surgery and implant materials, these procedures have become one of the most common and most successful interventions in today's orthopaedics industry. Aesculap Implant Systems is proud to partner with surgeons to provide improved solutions for joint disease and educate patients on how the technology is applied,” said Gabriel.

At Aesculap Implant Systems, we understand the essential role of the physician and orthopaedic surgeon in creating a treatment plan and have created this information to complement the patients’ efforts.
