If you have hip, knee and shoulder issues because of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus or other joint related conditions and injuries, our surgeons will use the most advanced tools and techniques for joint replacement and reconstruction; and revision surgeries.
Physical therapy is a big part of recovering from a surgery. Our surgeon will work closely with our rehab specialists who will be a core part of your care team.
Overview and Symptoms
Your physician will review your medical history, ask you to describe the pain and other joint discomfort, and will want to know whether you have suffered any other injuries related to your hip, knee or shoulder.
An X-ray will be ordered and which will reveal any abnormalities of the joint and help our physician create a treatment plan.
Pain and stiffness in the hip joints mean your daily activities like walking, shopping and even sitting becomes a struggle. To help you return to your normal activities pain free our specialist may suggest surgery depending upon the severity of your condition.
During this surgery, the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with medical-grade ceramic, plastic or metal prosthetic. The hip replacement can be done through minimal invasive method or through the traditional procedure.
The most common reasons for knee replacements is arthritis, osteonecrosis (decreased blood supply to the bone) and injuries.
In this procedure, the damaged cartilage and bone are replaced with metal implants that recreate the surface of the knee joint. A medical-grade plastic “spacer” is inserted between the metal implants so a smooth gliding surface is created. You may need a total joint replacement or a partial knee replacement (only the damaged part is removed). Our surgeon will suggest a traditional or minimally invasive procedure based on your condition.
After surgery you will have access to our rehab staff to help you get back to your normal activities as quickly and comfortably as possible.
