Joint Replacement Surgery

If you suffer from joint complications related to degenerative joint diseases or damage, help is at hand. Damaged joints can lead to debilitating pain that limits your daily activities, makes it difficult to sleep, and may result in a significant loss in your range of motion.

Where medical and physical therapy interventions are unsuccessful, joint replacement may be the recommended next step. Where only some of the joint is damaged, it could be possible to repair or replace only those parts, but where the entire joint has been damaged, a total joint replacement is needed.

Surgery Tailored to Your Needs

Total Hip Replacement

Your hips are made up of six bones that work together to allow for an extensive range of motion that includes the everyday activities of sitting, standing, walking, and bending. In a hip replacement, the damaged tendons can be replaced to improve function and relieve pain.

Revision Hip Replacement

In a revision hip replacement, the worn out or failed prosthesis is replaced with a new hip implant.

Total Knee Replacement

Your knees take most of the impact in any activity that you do as they bear almost all of your body’s weight. In a total knee replacement, an artificial knee joint is used to restore mobility and alleviate pain.

Unicondylar (Unicompartmental) Knee Replacement

Known also as a partial knee replacement, only a portion of the knee is resurfaced. This is done using either metal or plastic components.

Revision Knee Replacement

If a knee replacement wears out or fails, a revision knee replacement surgery will replace the original knee implant.

Shoulder Joint Replacement

Your shoulder should be the most mobile joint in your body as the ball and socket joint allows for 360 degrees of motion. With a should joint replacement, we can help alleviate pain and restore a wider range of motion.

Get the Help You Need

You may need a joint replacement for a number of reasons such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis. These conditions lead to considerable pain, as well as a limited range of motion. We will work with you to evaluate whether you are a good candidate for a joint replacement looking at your medical history as well as performing a physical exam and taking x-rays.

If you are ready to take the first steps towards pain-free joints, please schedule an appointment with us.
