Total joint arthroplasty is a surgery that replaces or fixes damaged joints, often as a result of arthritis or injury. This operation involves putting in artificial parts in places where the joints have been damaged. These artificial parts, known as prostheses help reduce pain, make movement easier, and improve your overall quality of life.

How joints work

Joints connect bones, letting us move smoothly. This system supports all our daily activities, from walking to waving. There are several parts that contribute to different movements:

  • Hinge joints (e.g., knees and elbows) that bend and straighten
  • Ball-and-socket joints (e.g. hips and shoulders) move in all directions.
  • Cartilage prevents bones from rubbing
  • Ligaments hold bones in place

Conditions we treat

Through a total joint arthroplasty, we treat a range of joint conditions, focusing on both common and complex issues that affect mobility. Our goal is to give you relief and improve joint function. Conditions we treat include:

  • Bursitis
