Surgical Services

Total Knee Replacement
With total knee replacement the knee itself is not replaced, but rather an artificial substitute for the cartilage and arthritic bone is inserted on the end of the bones. This is done with a metal alloy prosthesis on the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shin bone). A plastic spacer is placed between the metal and on the kneecap creating a new smooth cushion and a functioning joint.

Knee Arthroscopy
The most common arthroscopic procedure is knee arthroscopy (or a knee scope). Knee scopes are often just 30 to 60 minute procedures and can be done under local or regional anesthesia. A knee scope is commonly used to remove or repair a torn meniscus, reconstruct torn ligaments such as an ACL or MCL, restore or replace cartilage, trim torn cartilage or remove inflamed tissue.

Total Hip Replacement
A total hip replacement is an operation that removes the arthritic ball of the upper thigh bone, the femur, as well as damaged cartilage from the hip socket. The ball is replaced with a metal ball that is fixed solidly inside the femur. The socket is replaced with a liner that is usually fixed inside a metal shell.

Hip Resurfacing
Hip resurfacing preserves the femoral head and neck (the top part of the thigh bone). The head is trimmed and resurfaced and the socket is lined with a metal shell. This creates a smooth functioning joint. This procedure is intended for active adults under age 60 who have good bone stock and who need a hip replacement.

Hip Arthroscopy
Hip arthroscopy (or a hip scope) is a 1 ½ to 2 ½ hour surgery that requires two to four small incisions around the side of the hip. Using a small camera, the surgeon assesses the hip joint and looks for cartilage damage. The surgeon is able to shave off bone spurs, reconstruct or repair the labral, restore or replace cartilage, re-contour the ball and socket and remove loose chunks of debris that may be floating around the hip.
