Joint care

Doctors specializing in joint care, called orthopedists, diagnose and treat problems related to your joints. They treat injuries related to bones, shoulders, knees and hips and relieve pain with joint rehabilitation or replacement. You may need to see them if you have strains, sprains, arthritis or chronic joint pain.

Our joint treatments and services

As a Blue Distinction Center+ for Knee and Hip Replacement by Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), we are proud to offer cutting-edge joint treatment options, including:

Arthroscopic joint surgery

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to examine and treat joint conditions. This procedure involves your orthopedic surgeon making a small incision and inserting a small scope/camera. One common use of arthroscopy is to perform labral repairs, which is when we repair the cartilage on the outside of the hip socket.

Hip replacement surgery

Our orthopedic surgeons are extensively trained in hip joint replacement surgery and offer the following surgical options:

  • Hip resurfacing — Hip resurfacing is not a full hip replacement but rather a reshaping of the hip bone. It is designed to conserve more of the existing bone.
  • Total hip replacement — Total hip replacement surgery can be performed traditionally by using an anterior (front of hip) or posterior/lateral (back of hip/side of hip) approach.

Knee replacement surgery

We offer a range of options for patients in need of knee replacement surgery, including:

  • Total knee replacement — This procedure allows your doctor to surgically remove all three compartments of the knee — medial (inside), lateral (outside) and kneecap. The remaining bone is then shaped to accommodate a knee implant. Your surgeon may use a minimally invasive approach to perform the total knee replacement.
  • Partial knee replacement — During this procedure, your surgeon will use a minimally invasive technique to resurface only one area of the knee, preserving the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL).

Shoulder replacement surgery

We offer the following shoulder replacement surgeries:

  • Total shoulder replacement — This procedure removes the damaged parts of the upper arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder bone (scapula), replacing them with a prosthetic components.
  • Partial shoulder replacement — This surgery removes the damaged humeral head of the humerus and replaces it with a prosthetic ball, leaving the natural socket in place.
  • Reverse total shoulder replacement — This procedure reverses the position of the prostheses. The ball at the top of the humerus is replaced with a socket-shaped prosthesis, and the shoulder's natural socket is fitted with a prosthetic ball.

After joint surgery, we offer comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation services to help you heal and recover.
