Hip and Knee

As we age, certain types of arthritis can cause the cartilage in our joints to break down, causing pain and limiting mobility. For those affected by hip or knee injuries or conditions, simple actions like walking, going up and down stairs or bending down can be nearly impossible. The hip and knee specialists at North Shore Medical Center are experts in hip and knee treatment as well as total joint replacements. 

Our Approach


Hip or knee pain may initially be treated with non-surgical approaches, however, in certain cases, surgery to repair or replace a joint may be required. Our surgeons are specially trained in joint restoration and replacement. Depending upon your condition, your surgeons may repair a portion of your hip or knee or may replace the bone and cartilage with an artificial joint. 

Throughout the surgical process, you can rest assured that our team or physicians, nurses, physical therapists and nurse practitioners will be available to care for you, answer your questions, help prepare you for surgery and assist in transitioning you back to home.
