Joint replacement surgery
Constant hip, knee or shoulder pain can interfere with even simple tasks of everyday life. Our orthopedic doctors use advanced diagnostics to determine the root cause of your pain and then develop a pain management plan just for you.
You should talk with your doctor about hip, knee or shoulder replacement options if you have been experiencing:
- Hips, knees or shoulders grinding/hurting when you move
- Pain when walking or standing
In some instances, a joint replacement procedure will be the best option to relieve chronic hip or knee pain. When orthopedic surgery is necessary, you can feel confident you are in the best of hands at our institute, which earned certification for total hip and knee replacement procedures from The Joint Commission, the nation's leading authority on quality care, outcomes and continuous improvement.
Our highly trained staff is committed to your return to health through non-surgical methods like rehabilitation and specialized treatment programs. However, when orthopedic surgery is necessary, you can trust the experienced orthopedic surgeons at Westside Regional to perform these minimally invasive procedures with the highest level of care to restore your maximum abilities.
Hip replacement surgery
The anterior hip replacement approach allows the surgeon to operate through a smaller surgical incision, which means less blood loss, scarring and tissue damage.
During this procedure, muscles surrounding the hip joint are separated at intervals which naturally occur within the tissue. Muscles are not cut, nor are they detached from the femur or pelvis during the surgery. As a result, you would have a shortened recovery time without experiencing surgical trauma to the muscles.
Knee replacement surgery
Bone-shape differences affect the way a knee replacement fits. Studies show that misalignment causes increased wear of the implant and can lead to premature failure.
Our customized knee replacement surgery uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology and preoperative planning tools to create individualized surgical guides of the patient's anatomy.
With this approach, our orthopedic surgeons can adjust and improve computer-generated images of the patient’s knee to perform the ideal customized surgery with knee replacements that are an exact match for the patient.
Westside provides a comprehensive approach to your care without you needing to leave the unit. We know that many orthopedic and spine surgeries require physical therapy and rehabilitation, and we are able to offer a variety of services to our patients for their individual needs.
