Learn About Your Treatment Options

Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip Replacement Surgery

The goal of hip replacement is to help you get back to an active lifestyle with less pain. In a total hip replacement surgery, doctors replace the diseased or damaged hip with an implant consisting of a stem, ball, liner, and acetabular cup.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee Replacement Surgery

More than 790,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the U.S.1, making it one of the most common orthopaedic surgeries. During the surgery, damaged cartilage and bone are removed from the knee joint and replaced with a man-made joint — all in only 1-2 hours.
