What is joint replacement?

Patients who require joint replacement typically have arthritis of their joints, perhaps in their hips, knees, wrists, etc. Arthritis is a disease that is defined by the wearing out and destruction of the smooth cartilage that lines the joints of the body. Cartilage allows bones to move smoothly and efficiently. When the cartilage becomes damaged and worn-out, the joints do not move as well. Motion becomes limited and painful. There are many treatments for arthritis; however, severe arthritis often requires joint replacement surgery.

Hip Replacement Surgeon

How are joint replacements performed?

Joint replacement surgery—including hip replacement and knee replacement, for instance—involves removing the worn-out cartilage and bone at the ends of diseased joints and replacing it with state-of-the-art prosthetic devices that function smoothly and without pain. The knees, hips, and shoulders are commonly treated with joint replacement surgery.

Our surgeons utilize the latest technology and protocol to ensure an excellent outcome for our patients. By using the latest techniques in anesthesia and pain management, our patients experience very little pain after surgery. Patients progress and recover from surgery, such as hip replacement or joint replacement, rapidly with a devoted, professional, highly skilled therapy and nursing team designed to meet their needs and near home.
