Our expert team uses the latest advances in joint replacement surgery to treat osteoarthritis or trauma in the hips, knees, shoulders, elbows or ankles.

What Does Joint Replacement Involve?

Have you tried non-surgical treatments without success? Or do these treatments no longer ease your pain and stiffness? You don't have to give up your active lifestyle. Joint replacement surgery can give you long-lasting relief.

Joint replacement surgery involves removing a damaged joint and replacing it with a prosthetic. If you have a total joint replacement your surgeon replaces the entire joint. A partial joint replacement involves removing and replacing only the damaged part of the joint.

Hip and knee replacements are the most common joint replacements. And we offer two different approaches for hip replacement surgery:

  • Anterior hip replacement, where the surgeon enters through the front of the hip.

  • Posterior hip replacement, where the surgeon enters through the back of the hip.

Our expert orthopedic surgeons also offer:

  • Ankle replacement.

  • Elbow replacement.

  • Shoulder replacement.

You'll need to do physical therapy and exercises in the hospital and when you return home. This helps strengthen the muscles around your new joint. Physical therapy also helps to stretch scar tissue so your new joint can move as normally as possible. Soon you'll be back to doing the things you love, without the pain.
