Similarly to our highly recognized Total Knee Replacement Surgery, our Total Hip Replacement Surgery is recommended for people with hip joint damage from arthritis or an injury.

After therapy, hip replacement can relieve pain and restore range of motion and function of your hip joint. A total hip replacement is one of the most common orthopedic procedures.

Our Joint Replacement Program has won numerous high quality awards from Joint Commission, United Healthcare and Blue Cross.

If you are experiencing shoulder and elbow conditions such as shoulder dislocation, shoulder tendonitis, rotator cuff injury or bursitis, we can help.

Total Shoulder Replacement is similar in concept to total knee replacement and total hip replacement. When arthritis has damaged or destroyed the shoulder joint, it may be replaced with a metal ball and plastic socket.

Many people assume that foot and ankle pain is an inevitable side effect of aging or participating in sports. However, if you are experiencing chronic foot or ankle pain, you don't have to suffer in silence.

Your foot may seem relatively small section of your body, but it actually plays a vital role in your daily life. With 26 bones, 33 joints and various arches, tendons, muscles, and ligaments, the foot is one of the most complex structures in the human body.

Pain in your feet, ankles, or legs can make it impossible to function. Simple tasks such as grocery shopping or walking to the mailbox can turn into a nightmare.
