Total Joint Replacement Surgery
Joint replacement surgery is removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one. Sometimes the surgeon will not remove the whole joint and instead only replace or fix the damaged parts. Replacing a joint can relieve pain and help you move and feel better. Hips and knees are replaced most often, but other joints that can be replaced include the shoulders, fingers, ankles and elbows.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive operation to repair a damaged joint; the surgeon examines the joint with an arthroscope while making repairs through a small incision.
- Little scarring and quick healing due to smaller incisions
- Reduced risk of infection and swelling associated with small incisions
- Easier examination of skeletal joints, such as the knee, hip or shoulder
- Less pain because the use of small instruments causes less damage to surrounding tissues
Shorter surgical time – A typical arthroscopic procedure takes less than one hour
Medical Director John P. Scullin, M.D. states, “Lower infection rates are just another example of how specialization can significantly improve the quality of care available for our patients.”
