Joint Replacement

  1. Arthroscopy

    Orthopedic surgeons use arthroscopy to diagnose and treat joint problems. An arthroscope is a small, tube shaped instrument that is used to look inside a joint.

  2. Evaluation Procedures

    To help the orthopedist determine your treatment, you'll need a physical exam, a medical history profile, and a description of symptoms.

  3. Hip Fracture

    A hip fracture is classified by the specific area of the break and the type of break(s) in the bone. It is a serious injury and requires immediate medical attention.

  4. Hip Replacement Surgery

    This surgery may be considered as treatment after a hip fracture or for someone who has severe arthritis.

  5. Is It Time for a New Joint?

    Millions of us struggle with pain and loss of motion because of joint damage caused by arthritis. If other treatments fail to offer relief, you may wonder about turning in your worn-out joints for new ones.

  6. Joint Replacement Surgery

    Joint replacement is a surgical procedure to remove and replace an arthritic or damaged joint with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis.

  7. Knee Replacement Surgery

    When a knee is severely damaged by disease or injury, an artificial knee replacement may be considered.

  8. Treatment Plans

    For most orthopedic disorders and injuries, more than one form of treatment may be appropriate.
