Joint Replacement Surgeries we offer Depending on the patient’s condition and needs, our experts might recommend the following: Partial Joint Replacement For cases where only a part of the joint is damaged, our surgeons perform partial joint replacement, preserving healthy bone and tissue. This approach results in faster recovery and better joint function preservation. Common Partial Joint Replacement Surgeries include: 1 Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKR) Also known as partial knee replacement, this procedure involves replacing only the damaged part of the knee joint, preserving healthy bone and tissue for faster recovery and better joint function preservation. 2 Hip Resurfacing A less invasive alternative to total hip replacement, hip resurfacing involves reshaping and capping the damaged joint surfaces with a metal prosthesis, preserving more of the patient's natural bone and allowing for a more natural joint movement. 3 Partial Shoulder Replacement In cases where only a portion of the shoulder joint is damaged, this procedure replaces the damaged part while preserving healthy bone and tissue, resulting in faster recovery and better joint function preservation. Total Joint Replacement In the case where the damage is severe, our expert surgeons replace the damaged joint surfaces with artificial components. These components are made from top-quality materials like metal, ceramic, or medical-grade plastic. This procedure helps alleviate pain and restore joint function. Total Joint Replacement 1 Total Hip Replacement (THR) Our surgeons replace damaged hip joints with artificial components to relieve pain and improve joint function, allowing for increased mobility and an enhanced quality of life. 2 Total Knee Replacement (TKR) This procedure involves replacing the damaged knee joint surfaces with artificial components, alleviating pain and restoring smooth, pain-free movement. 3 Total Shoulder Replacement (TSR) In this surgery, the damaged shoulder joint is replaced with artificial components, reducing pain and improving the range of motion and overall function. 4 Total Ankle Replacement (TAR) Our surgeons replace the damaged ankle joint with an artificial implant, providing pain relief and improved mobility for patients with ankle arthritis or other degenerative conditions.

FAQs How do I know if I’m a candidate for joint replacement surgery? Candidates for joint replacement surgery typically experience chronic joint pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility due to arthritis, injury, or other degenerative conditions. Our specialists will evaluate your condition during a consultation to determine if joint replacement surgery is the right option for you. How long is the recovery period after joint replacement surgery? Recovery time varies depending on the type of joint replacement surgery, the patient’s overall health, and adherence to postoperative care instructions. Generally, patients can expect to return to normal daily activities within 6-12 weeks following surgery, with continued improvements over several months. What is the difference between total and partial joint replacement? Total joint replacement involves replacing the entire damaged joint with artificial components, while partial joint replacement replaces only the damaged part of the joint, preserving healthy bone and tissue. Partial joint replacement often results in faster recovery and better preservation of joint function. How long do joint replacement implants typically last? Joint replacement implants are designed to be durable and long-lasting, with most lasting 15-20 years or more. The lifespan of an implant can be influenced by factors such as the patient’s age, activity level, and overall health. Regular follow-up appointments and proper care can help ensure the longevity of your joint replacement. Will I be completely pain-free after joint replacement surgery? While joint replacement surgery is highly successful in relieving pain and restoring mobility, some patients may still experience mild discomfort or stiffness following surgery. However, this is typically manageable and significantly less than the pain experienced prior to surgery. Our team will provide guidance on managing any residual discomfort as you progress through your recovery.
