Total Hip/Knee Replacement Surgery
Our orthopedic surgeons have extensive experience and training in total hip/knee replacement procedures, including minimally invasive treatment options.
Types of Less Invasive Hip Replacement Options
Anterior Total Hip Replacement Surgery:
Unlike traditional hip replacement surgery, this technique allows the surgeon to work between the muscles and tissues without detaching them from either the hip or thigh bone. Additional benefits to patients are: fewer restrictions during recovery, reduced scarring and stability of the implant sooner after surgery.
The following practices can sometimes be used to delay or prevent joint destruction and joint replacement. Most of these can be done through minimally invasive techniques.
Hip Procedures Include:
• Hip Scope – identify and repair labral tears
• Correct snapping hip syndrome
• Cartilage transplant
• Remove loose bodies
• Reset bone spurs of acetabulum and femural head.
Knee Procedures Include:
• Cartilage preservation and transplant
• Meniscal repair
• Knee scope
• Tendon and ligament repair/reconstruction.
Shoulder Procedures Include:
• Labral repair
• Tendon/cuff repair
• Cartilage transplant.
Some orthopedic patients may need physical therapy following surgery. Our physical therapy team consists of licensed physical therapists, many of whom are doctors of physical therapy, and physical therapy assistants.
