    Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery

     

    Hip and knee replacement surgery can help relieve joint pain caused by damage to cartilage that covers the ends of the bones in the hip and knee, and is typically performed after such treatments as physical therapy and medication have failed. 

    At St. Luke’s, our goal for hip and knee replacement is twofold: relief from pain with improved function and range of motion — resulting in a more active and comfortable lifestyle. Hip and knee replacements are the most common, but the surgery can also be performed on joints such as the shoulder and elbow. 

    Reasons for joint replacement might include trauma such as fractures or disease such as arthritis. During joint replacement, diseased or injured joint surfaces are removed and replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis, which is generally made of metal and plastic or ceramic. These materials are designed to allow the joint to move more like your normal joint. 

    Our physicians have extensive training in all types of joint replacement and utilize the latest materials and newest approaches. We offer the most advanced techniques and procedures, including the unicondylar knee, which allows a surgeon to partially replace a diseased knee joint; and many hip and knee replacements can now be done with minimally invasive surgery, resulting in a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
