Joint replacement surgery

Joint replacement can help reduce pain and increase mobility, so you can return to your daily routine without limitations. During a full joint replacement, the entire joint will be replaced with an artificial joint. During a partial joint replacement, only a portion of the damaged joint is replaced.

The artificial joint is extremely lightweight and durable. Many patients experience years of improved motion as a result of their surgery. Joint replacement procedures we offer include:

  • Partial knee replacement
  • Partial shoulder replacement
  • Revision of total hip replacement
  • Revision of total knee replacement
  • Revision of shoulder replacement

  • Total shoulder replacement

Candidates for joint replacement surgery

If you are considering joint replacement surgery, we will first perform a physical examination to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. The physical examination will also give us a chance to better understand the extent of damage to your joint. Total joint replacement will be considered if other treatment options have not been effective at relieving pain and increasing mobility.

Sports medicine

Robotic surgery

We are leaders in minimally invasive and robotic surgical procedures to help patients recover and get back to their normal lives more quickly. Our surgeons focus on your specific needs and individual goals and provide comprehensive follow-through and support after treatment.
