Total Joint Program
According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 15 million Americans report acute joint pain from arthritis. Our department of orthopedic care has a dedicated team of joint replacement specialists that make up our Total Joint Program, a comprehensive branch of care specifically for patients with joint issues.
Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of board-certified orthopedists, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, nurses, physical therapists and joint specialists who provide a full range of treatment options, including imaging, treatments, surgeries and rehabilitation.
Hip replacements are some of the most common forms of joint replacement surgery, and utilize prosthetics to mimic healthy hips. Having been around for more than 125 years, according to the American Academy of Orthopedics, the procedure is performed more than 300,000 times every year in the U.S. alone.
New approaches in total hip surgery include anterior hip replacement. Advantages to utilizing this approach include:
- Faster recovery
- Fewer postoperative precautions and restrictions
- Less damage to major muscles
- Less post-operative pain
Joint replacements become necessary after the protective cartilage cushion over the ends of your bones wears away, causing irritation, stiffness and pain.
When medication or physical therapy can no longer manage this pain, it may be time to consult an orthopedic surgeon. Joint replacement surgery removes damage in the joint by inserting a joint replica, helping to relieve pain, increase mobility and improve overall feeling.
Knee replacement surgery has come a long way and depending on what you and your doctor decide, there are several options from total knee to partial knee replacement.
The shoulder is used in just about every move we make – from dressing to eating to writing to lifting – our shoulders help us with our everyday tasks. That’s why shoulder pain can be so debilitating Los Robles offers patients the full suite of shoulder treatments, procedures and surgical techniques including total shoulder replacement.
