Joint Replacement Surgeries
Some of the more common joint replacement procedures we perform include:
The shoulder joint is among the most mobile joints in the body. However, because it is responsible for powering so many of our daily movements and is subject to significant force or pressure, the shoulder joint is especially prone to wear and tear over time.
You may require shoulder replacement surgery if bone and cartilage in the area are damaged due to fracture or arthritis, or if injury has made the joint unstable, causing pain, inflammation, and limited mobility.
Our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons specialize in total shoulder replacement, reverse shoulder replacement, and revision surgical procedures. Read more about the specific shoulder joint replacements we perform.
Hip replacement procedures are second only to knee replacements as the most common joint replacements performed in the US. In fact, it is estimated that well over 1 million patients each year have either a hip or knee replacement.
Arthritis is the primary reason for a worn hip joint requiring a hip replacement, although trauma and tumors may also necessitate the surgery. About half of those needing a hip replacement are over the age of 65.
Signs you may need a hip replacement include pain and stiffness in the area, as well as being unable to stand on one leg (the leg on the same side as the problem hip) for more than a minute, despite holding onto something for balance
Find out more about the specific hip replacement surgeries we perform, including hip resurfacing, total hip replacement, and the minimally invasive options available.
Surgery to replace worn-out knee joints are the most common joint replacement procedures performed. The surgery aims to alleviate chronic knee pain due to injury, arthritis, deformity, blood supply problems (avascular necrosis), and more.
Most people who have a knee replacement surgery are between 50 and 80 years old.
There are a variety of approaches to knee replacement. The one that is right for you will depend on the nature and extent of your problem. At The Bone and Joint Center, we perform partial and total knee replacements in addition to robotic-assisted surgery and same-day, minimally invasive procedures. Find out more.
The foot and ankle orthopedic specialists at The Bone & Joint Center perform ankle replacement surgeries – also known as a total ankle arthroplasty – to treat damage due to arthritis or trauma such as a broken or dislocated ankle.
Replacing damaged areas of the ankle joint with a prosthesis can restore range of motion to the ankle, helping to reduce the risk of arthritis developing in nearby joints.
