At Augusta University Health, our highly skilled orthopedic surgeons specialize in joint replacement surgery.  Our expertise allows us to treat patients with both routine and complex surgical issues. In fact, we treat patients from all over the region who have been turned down at other centers or are having continued pain after a prior joint replacement surgery. 

Our team of specialists provide evidence-based surgical care using the latest technology and proven treatment strategies.  We work to ensure the highest standards of patient safety and patient-centered care to provide you with the excellent outcomes you desire so that you can get back to the activities you enjoy. 

Joint replacement surgery is for patients who have had a traumatic injury, osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis, or osteonecrosis that causes joint destruction and severe pain in their hip, knee or shoulder joints. 

We offer: 

  • Hip Replacement surgery, including anterior hip replacement, posterior hip replacement, revision hip replacement, various implant designs and bearing surfaces to improve longevity and stability of the hip.
  • Knee Replacement surgery, total knee replacement, revision knee replacement, or partial knee replacement, in which surgeons remove and replace the cartilage in just the damaged section of the knee.
  • Shoulder Replacement surgery, we will work with you to find out which type of shoulder replacement will work best for the problem you are having whether it is a partial shoulder replacement, a standard total replacement or a reverse replacement.  We perform many revision shoulder replacements as well as replacements where the joint needs to be completely reconstructed due to a fracture or other injury.
