Hip and Knee Reconstruction: An Individualized Approach to Joint Health
Running, jumping, walking... Over a lifetime, your hips and knees bear the weight of these activities. When the cartilage in these joints is damaged from overuse or from arthritis, you can experience stiffness and pain. If pain becomes severe or if you have trouble walking, you may be a candidate for hip or knee reconstruction, also known as total joint replacement.
During hip or knee reconstruction, orthopaedic surgeons take out the damaged joint and replace it with an artificial joint, or prosthesis. Surgery and therapy can help patients return to an active and pain-free life.
Even though we offer surgical treatments, we believe in exploring conservative treatments first. We offer many nonsurgical treatments to relieve pain and inflammation and improve quality of life, including:
If you need surgery, we sit down with you and your family to discuss what to expect before, during and after surgery, including physical therapy. We offer an individualized approach to surgery, which means that we carefully fit the right implant and surgical technique to your specific needs. This includes:
- Hip replacement.
- Knee replacement.
- Complex cases. Our center cares for the most complex hip and knee problems in the region.
