Joint Replacement

Joint replacement may be considered when nonsurgical methods no longer relieve pain and/or improve mobility. Hips and knees are the joints replaced most often, but joints in shoulders, elbows, wrists and other areas can be replaced as well. Surgery for hip replacement patients, for example, can help reduce problems walking up and down stairs or make it easier to stand from a seated position.

Hip Replacement

Some of the most common reasons for hip replacement surgery include hip damage, such as a fracture, and osteoarthritis, a loss of joint cartilage that limits movement. Both can cause pain and inhibit daily activity.

Knee Replacement

Surgical options are total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, kneecap replacement or revision or complex knee replacement.

Shoulder Replacement

The shoulder is one of the most moveable joints in your body, and many shoulder conditions are caused by overuse.
