Alleviate joint pain

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint, or prosthesis. Joints may be partially or totally replaced depending on the location and severity of the problem. The prosthesis is designed to enable the artificial joint to move just like a normal, healthy joint. The goal is to alleviate the joint pain caused by the damaged cartilage and restore your function and mobility.

This is possible thanks to incredible technological and medical advances. Over 1 million joint replacements are performed in the US each year. Our skilled orthopaedic surgeons have exceptional training and experience in joint repair and replacement.

Convenient onsite physical therapy after surgery

After total joint replacement surgery, the highest level of function can only be achieved through an individualized physical therapy program. Our occupational and physical therapist staff have specialized programs for treating the entire musculoskeletal system, with specific programs to facilitate faster recovery and return to function after surgery.
