Reverse total shoulder replacement
The shoulder is complex and sophisticated. The most mobile joint in the body, its ball-and-socket structure is also one of the most vulnerable to injuries. At Wisconsin River Orthopaedics, board-certified orthopaedic surgeons specialize in reverse total shoulder replacement, an advanced procedure to help patients regain the full range of motion they once had.
Reverse shoulder replacement may be an option for:
Total or partial knee replacement
With three bones, two cartilage disks and three major ligaments connecting it to the major muscle groups that provide stability, the knee is one of the most complicated joints of the body. Arthritis is a common cause of knee pain, stiffness, and swelling. At some point, arthritis affects most people—the result of aging, normal wear and tear or post-traumatic arthritis after an injury. When pain and loss of mobility become overwhelming, a knee replacement can help people regain knee function with less pain. The experts at Wisconsin River Orthopedics provide a comprehensive evaluation to determine if patients are candidates for a partial or total knee replacement procedure.

Total hip replacement
The body’s largest ball and socket joint, the hip allows people to straighten their bodies and move their legs. One of the most commonly replaced joints in the body, hip replacement procedures are a reality—and blessing—for many as they age. Later in life, hip fractures, particularly associated with falls, are a serious concern. Most commonly, osteoarthritis—arthritis that develops over time from normal use—can mean terrible pain even without any trauma. The surgical experts at Wisconsin River Orthopedics replace the ball joint of the hip with metal and plastic, a procedure that helps patients restore mobility, regain stability and often rediscover more active, independent lives.
