Joints and Joint Replacement
The weight-bearing joints—shoulders, hips and knees—allow us to pivot and swivel, bend and stretch. However, these ball-and-socket mechanisms can wear over time, losing cartilage and lubrication and causing debilitating pain. Surgeons at the Orthopaedic & Spine Institute specialize in performing minimally invasive procedures for repair and replacement. These procedures represent less recovery time, chance of complications, and positive outcomes.
Patients may undergo partial, total, or other innovative surgeries to replace or repair diseased or injured joints. Our specialists have expertise in computer-guided joint replacement, robotic-assisted, and other types of technology, combined with a compassionate and caring philosophy. Our team of surgeons, nurses, physician assistants, rehabilitation specialists and medical support works with each patient’s primary care physician to develop an individualized treatment program.
We have created a program known for its quality of care. Our goal? Helping you find freedom of movement, without pain, once again. All the leading-edge techniques in joint restoration are available at the Institute:
