Joint replacement surgeries we offer
Disease or injury can disturb the normal functioning of a knee, hip or shoulder, which can result in pain, muscle weakness and limited movement. We provide comprehensive joint replacement solutions through our orthopedic program. Whether a total or partial joint replacement is right for you, you can trust you will receive excellent care.
To treat the knees for conditions such as arthritis, we offer total and partial knee replacement. Total knee replacement caps the ends of the bones that form the knee joint. A partial knee replacement replaces only the damaged part of the knee joint with a prosthetic implant.
We offer partial and total hip replacement options. Partial hip replacement involves removing the ball (femoral head) of the hip joint and replacing it with a prosthesis. This procedure does not replace the socket. Total hip replacement surgery removes both the ball and socket (acetabulum) and replaces them with prosthetic implants. We also perform anterior hip replacement which is a minimally invasive and muscle sparing approach to traditional hip replacement surgery.
Shoulder replacement surgery involves replacing the upper part of the arm bone (humerus) and/or the socket (glenoid) in the shoulder joint with metal or plastic components.
Robotic-assisted joint replacement
Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical approach that requires only small incisions and uses advanced technology to help your surgeon operate with utmost precision. Our surgeons use real-time information and images to precisely place joint implants. Benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:
- Faster recovery from surgery due to minimally invasive techniques used
- Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together, improving the lifetime of the implant
Robotic-assisted joint replacement is designed to achieve a new level of precision using advanced techniques in total joint replacement.
If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for a robotic-assisted joint replacement, he or she will schedule a computed tomography (CT) scan of your hip or knee one to two weeks prior to your surgery date. This is used to create your unique surgical plan for optimal implant placement.
Your physician should discuss the specific risks associated with the procedure and other treatment options with you.
Candidates for joint replacement surgery
