Total hip, knee and shoulder arthroplasty remain amongst the operations highest in patient satisfaction today. Common causes for hip, knee and shoulder replacement include primarily osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis as well as congenital and post-traumatic deformities.
At The Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic, we specialize in hip, knee and shoulder replacement. This includes the latest validated minimally invasive techniques combined with accelerated therapy programs. Hip, knee and shoulder replacement surgeries today are widely performed under regional anesthetic. The improved methodologies in peri-operative pain management allow rapid restoration of function and a timelier return to normal activities of daily living.
Additionally, advanced recovery techniques used lessen post-operative pain. Improvements in materials including ceramics, metals, and highly cross-linked polyethylene surfaces, allow longer survivorship as compared to historic controls.
At The Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic, in addition to joint sparing techniques, we offer techniques in partial hip replacement resurfacing techniques and total joint replacement utilizing the highest wear resistant materials available to date. Similarly, we offer a wide variety of knee arthroplasty options including uni-compartmental knee, patellofemoral resurfacing and total knee replacement. We also offer multiple variations in shoulder replacement surgery including hemi-arthroplasty (partial shoulder replacement), anatomic total shoulder replacement and reverse shoulder replacement.
