Total Joint Replacement

When a joint wears out or is damaged, even the simplest tasks like walking and sitting down can be painful.

At The Hospital of Orthopaedics we are dedicated to providing exceptional care to improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from debilitating joint diseases, disorders and injuries. We have an outstanding medical staff of board-certified orthopaedic surgeons.

The most common procedure to reduce pain and restore mobility is joint replacement for the hip, knee, shoulder and elbow. When your joint is replaced with a prosthesis you may be able to resume daily activities with greater comfort and ease of movement. And when you are ready to leave the hospital, a case manager will help coordinate your post-operative care, which may include rehabilitation services.

The orthopaedic surgeons at our hospital enjoy an extraordinarily high success rate for joint replacements. This success includes a large number of complex and challenging “revision” surgeries for patient’s whose initial prosthesis has loosened or weakened. Treatment of the failed joint replacement is challenging and requires specialized equipment and expertise.

For some younger, more physically active patientsthe surgeon may perform a surface replacement rather than a total joint replacement. Other alternatives to joint replacement include Osteotomy, Arthroplasty and Arthrodesis. After surgical treatment your doctor will help coordinate your post-operative care, which may include rehabilitation services.

Conditions that can be treated with joint replacement include:

  • Arthritis (Rheumatoid, Gouty or Osteoarthritis)
  • Arthritis from fractures
  • Avascular Necrosis
  • Hip fractures
  • Infectious joint disease
  • Tumors
