Orthopedic care

Orthopedic doctors, called orthopedists, take care of bones and joints. This includes knee pain, total joint replacement, issues that impact your spine and more. You might need to see an orthopedist if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, or if you've had a recent sprain, strain or broken bone.

If you are experiencing joint pain, you can count on our team to be there for you. Our orthopedic doctors, surgeons, pain management specialists and physical therapists treat chronic joint pain caused by injury, arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases.

We are proud to offer comprehensive joint replacement options, including minimally invasive surgery.

Joint replacement surgeries we offer

The goal of joint replacement surgery is to help relieve pain and restore function and movement to the affected joint. Whether total or partial joint replacement is right for you, you can be confident that our orthopedic team will provide excellent care.

We offer:

  • Total hip replacement: removes the damaged bones and cartilage and replaces them with prosthetic implants
  • Partial hip replacement: removes and replaces the ball (femoral head) of the hip joint without replacing the socket
  • Hip resurfacing: used as an alternative to hip replacement; replaces part of the damaged femoral head with a metal covering and the hip bone socket with a metal shell
  • Total knee replacement: uses robotic surgery techniques to resurface the knee by capping the ends of the bones that form the knee joint and the kneecap
  • Partial knee replacement: used as an alternative to total knee replacement; uses robotic surgery techniques to replace only the damaged part of the knee with a prosthesis
  • Shoulder replacement: replaces the damaged areas of the shoulder's ball-and-socket joint with metal or plastic prosthetic implants
  • Elbow replacement: replaces the elbow with an artificial joint

If you undergo joint replacement surgery, physical therapy and rehabilitation play an important role in your recovery. Our physical therapy team will work with you to help you regain mobility and get you back to the activities you love.

Candidates for joint replacement surgery

You may be a candidate for joint replacement surgery if:

  • The pain in your joint is present even when resting, or interferes with sleep.
  • You have moderate to severe arthritis in your joint, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or post-traumatic arthritis.
  • You have stiffness or reduced range of motion during normal activities.
  • You have tried nonsurgical treatments, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections or physical therapy, but haven't found relief

The Orthopedic Institute provides patients undergoing surgery an upscale environment while also promoting wellness and healing. Our amenities include private rooms with safety-enhanced patient beds and extra seating for family members.

We also have a coffee shop with a waiting area and a digital tracking board to allow your family and loved ones to track your surgery.
