Joint Replacement

Total joint replacement, or arthroplasty, is the process of surgically removing a damaged or arthritic joint and replacing it with an artificial joint known as a prosthesis. This type of procedure is most often done on joints where the cartilage is so damaged that it is causing the patient severe pain, stiffness, or immobility. Hip and knee replacements are the most common type of joint replacement procedures, though replacement surgery can be performed on other joints including the shoulder, foot, ankle, elbow, and fingers. The materials used in modern joint replacements are carefully designed to enable the artificial joint to move much like, if not exactly like, a normal joint.

Many of our physicians specialize in total joint replacement, including minimal incision replacement, anterior hip replacement and other innovative procedures that maximize implant function and speed recovery time. Implementing the latest technology and techniques to ensure the least invasive and most positive outcome for each patient, OrthoVirginia is committed to helping total joint patients achieve maximum pain relief and restored function as quickly and conservatively as possible.
