Total Joint Replacement

What is total joint replacement?

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure where damaged joints are removed and replaced with a prosthesis device. The prosthesis is made of metal, plastic and replicates the movement of a natural, healthy joint.

What kinds of total joint replacement does AVORS medical group offer?

We offer the following total joint replacement procedures.

  • Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement: This type of joint replacement uses smaller incisions and requires less recovery time.
  • Anterior Total Hip Replacement: Anterior refers to the front of the hip. During this procedure, the front of the hip may be removed and replaced with an implant to alleviate pain and increase mobility.
  • Hip Replacement: A hip replacement is when damaged areas of the hip are removed and replaced with a prosthetic. Damaged areas could include bone, cartilage and soft tissue.
  • Knee Replacement: This procedure is also known as knee arthroplasty. During a knee replacement procedure, the knee is resurfaced. Metal and plastic implants are often used during this procedure to cap the ends of bones.
  • Partial Knee Replacement: During this procedure, only the damaged area of the knee is replaced. This could include the inside (medial) or outside (lateral) area of the knee.
  • Shoulder Total and Reverse Replacement: This procedure is reserved only for those with severely damaged joints. During this procedure, damaged areas of the shoulder are replaced. This procedure can ease pain and increase mobility in patients with severe shoulder damage.
