Total Joint and General Orthopedics

Is it time to consider joint replacement? Over time, joints deteriorate due to arthritis, osteoporosis, injury and overuse which can cause pain and immobility. When other treatment options fail to alleviate this pain and immobility, a total jsoint replacement may be the next option.

Utilizing advanced technology, the award-winning physicians at Arizona Spine and Joint Hospital specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of joint disorders requiring total joint replacement. Our physicians work with patients to create custom treatment plans to help alleviate their pain and get them back to enjoying normal, active lives.

Orthopedic Services

Total Hip Replacement:

If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, injury, or other serious conditions, you may want to consider a total hip replacement. By removing damaged bone and cartilage, then replacing it with prosthetic materials, patients typically experience decreased pain and increased mobility. Our physicians perform total hip replacements utilizing a posterior (back) approach or an anterior (front) approach. Talk with your physician about the benefits of each approach based on your physical condition.

Total Knee Replacement:

If you suffer from severe knee pain and nonsurgical treatments no longer provide relief, your physician may recommend total knee replacement surgery. Total knee replacement surgery involves replacing the damaged surfaces of the bones of the knee with implants on the femur and tibia. Implants are constructed from artificial material consisting of metal alloys, ceramic material or strong plastic parts. Talk with your physician to help decide which type of implant is best for your condition and lifestyle.

Total Shoulder Replacement:

Shoulder joint replacement surgery is an option if nonsurgical treatments are no longer successful. Total shoulder replacement involves replacement of the damaged joint with a prosthetic implant. The procedure requires replacement of the head of the humerus bone (ball) or the replacement of the head of the humerus bone (ball) along with the glenoid cavity of the scapula (socket). Talk with your physician about what to expect from shoulder replacement surgery.
