Treatments & Services

Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement, (total hip arthroplasty), is the replacement of a hip joint as an alternative to other treatments. Arthritis damage that causes pain that no longer responds to treatment is usually the reason a hip replacement is chosen. The damaged pieces of the hip joint are replaced with artificial parts.

Revision Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement is one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine. In the vast majority of cases, total hip replacement enables people to live more active lives without debilitating hip pain. Over time, however, a hip replacement can fail for a variety of reasons. When this occurs, your doctor may recommend that you have a second operation to remove some or all of the parts of the original prosthesis and replace them with new ones. This procedure is called revision total hip replacement.

Total Knee Replacement

When normal daily activities like walking and climbing stairs are hard due to painful knees, usually caused by arthritis or injury, total knee replacement is an option. Most often used when pain and stiffness are not helped by medication and other treatments, the knee joint (which is the largest joint in the body) is replaced by artificial parts to restore pain-free movement.
