Our specialty-trained doctors at Flagstaff Bone & Joint are recognized experts in joint replacement.
Severe joint pain is the most common reason patients undergo a joint replacement procedure. Whether your pain is a result of an old injury, of a degenerative condition like arthritis or osteoarthritis, or of a fracture, joint replacement procedures may be the recommended treatment option.
Nearly any joint in the body can be replaced with a fully functioning artificial implant, but the most common joint replacements are of the hip, knee, or shoulder.
At Flagstaff Bone & Joint, our doctors specialize in performing a wide array of joint replacement procedures. This includes total joint replacements, osteotomies, joint resurfacing procedures, and partial knee replacements, which is performed when damage to the knee from osteoarthritis is confined to only one compartment of the knee. Additionally, our experts also perform OMNIBotics® robotic-assisted total knee replacement, an innovative procedure that combines surgical navigation and robotics.
You may be a candidate for a joint replacement surgery if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Severe joint pain
- Pain in the joint that keeps you awake at night
- Joint discomfort that prevents you from participating in recreational activities
- Joint pain that limits your ability to conduct necessary and daily functions, such as climbing stairs or standing up
- You have attempted more conservative treatment methods, such as exercise or therapy, without success
Our joint replacement doctors are committed to learning the newest procedures, surgeries, and surgical techniques for joint replacement surgery as well as for other joint-related surgeries and procedures. While our doctors are highly skilled in performing joint replacement surgery, including knee replacement and hip replacement, they will only consider surgery after all conservative treatment options, including therapy, have been exhausted.
