Total joint replacement is a type of surgical procedure often performed once less-invasive therapies and medications fail to alleviate severe joint pain or dysfunction. During a total joint replacement procedure, damaged or arthritic joints are removed and replaced with an orthopedic prosthesis. These metal, plastic or ceramic devices are designed to function like a normal, healthy joint.
Our specialized team works together from consultation through post-op recovery and discharge, providing a comprehensive approach to managing your unique case.
If you are suffering from severe pain or dysfunction in your knee, hip or shoulder, a total joint replacement from our orthopedic surgeons could drastically improve your quality life. Talk to your doctor or call us to determine if total joint replacement is right for you.
Common joint replacements at Lexington Regional Health Center include, but are not limited to:
- Total knee replacement
- Total hip replacement
- Shoulder replacement (Arthroscopy)
- Unicondylar knee replacement
Unicondylar or Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (also known as partial knee replacement) is a procedure performed when only one area of a patient’s knee is resurfaced.
