Hip and Knee

Hip and knee pain can make everyday motions like walking and bending seem almost impossible. As we age, certain types of arthritis can cause the cartilage in our joints to break down, causing pain and limiting mobility. Our orthopedic specialists are experts in hip and knee treatment as well as total joint replacement and can help you get moving again.

Our Approach

Hip or knee pain may initially be treated with non-surgical approaches like physical therapy or medication. In certain cases, surgery may be required to repair or replace a joint that has deteriorated significantly. Our surgeons are specially trained in joint restoration and replacement.

Joint Replacement Surgery/ Hip and Knee School

If surgery is recommended, our highly skilled team will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that will prepare you for surgery and help you recover. All patients are encouraged to attend our free “Hip and Knee School” to meet members of your care team, ask questions and meet and learn from other patients who are also scheduled for joint replacement surgery.

Today, joint replacement surgery is highly advanced and many only require a short stay in the hospital. Some patients may even be discharged the same day. If a hospital stay is required, you will be cared for on our recently remodeled patient floors that feature spacious private rooms with private bathrooms. All staff on these floors have been specially trained in caring for orthopedic patients.

Our Hip and Knee Navigators

If your physician determines that surgery is necessary, you will work with our Hip and Knee Navigators who will guide you every step of the way.
