Joint Replacement

Total or Partial Hip and Knee

Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint replacement surgery replaces the worn-out arthritic joint surfaces with artificial joint surfaces that do not sense pressure or pain. Total joint replacement is an elective procedure and should only be performed when you are no longer able to deal with your current pain and disability.

Considering a surgery such as a joint replacement is a major decision.  Our experienced and specialized physicians will explain the joint replacement procedure and help you understand the benefits versus the risks involved.  Call to schedule your appointment today, (907) 364-2663.
