Hip & Knee Replacement
State-of-the-art total joint replacement for the hip and knee.
As we age, our joints can deteriorate and become painful or otherwise disordered.
A key culprit in this deterioration is osteoarthritis, which can take a severe toll on the joints, particularly the hip and knee. It can cause loss of cartilage, which results in the bones of the joint rubbing together, causing pain and/or limited function or movement, or even disability. At the same time, the hips and knees are vital weightbearing structures, making them susceptible to injuries at work, from falls, during sporting events and more. As a result, there are several conditions that can cause hip or knee pain and disability and lead people to consider joint replacement surgery. In many cases, joint pain is caused by damage to the cartilage that lines the ends of the bones (articular cartilage), as is common in osteoarthritis.
