Advanced Joint Replacement

Learn what to expect before, during and after surgery

To relieve severe arthritis of the hips, knees and shoulders, we offer the newest joint restoration and preservation techniques. Should you need joint replacement, though, rest assured you’re in highly skilled hands.

Some of our specialties include:

  • Anterior hip replacement: this innovative, muscle-sparing alternative to traditional hip replacement provides better mobility, faster recovery and decreased risk of dislocation
  • Reverse total shoulder replacements: a new, state-of-the-art procedure for patients with shoulder arthritis who have a deficient rotator cuff
  • Complex hip and knee revisions: used to correct previous joint replacements, which may have given out prematurely due to wear and tear, infection, instability or other factors
  • Cutting-edge pain management methods: to decrease post-operative pain and speed healing
  • Rapid-recovery rehabilitation: unique techniques to get you back to your active life

Sports Medicine Specialists

Whether you’ve suffered an on-the-field trauma or are dealing with a chronic overuse injury, our sports medicine experts can help you return to peak form. We provide the latest non-invasive pain management methods, as well as a complete suite of surgical services, including:

  • Minimally invasive hip arthroscopy: used to address cartilage problems of the hip joint through small, one-centimeter incisions
  • Reconstructive shoulder surgery: using arthroscopic and open techniques
  • Complex shoulder stabilization procedures: for patients with recurrent dislocations
  • Knee ACL reconstruction: leveraging the latest techniques, including both autograft and allograft
