Total Joint Replacement

Our Team Will Guide You through Every Step

Pain from arthritis got you down? In the Hip and Knee Center, our joint reconstruction specialists offer a range of treatments from non-operative measures to partial and total joint replacement. When possible, nonsurgical methods are utilized first, with a philosophy that the longer the life of a person’s joint can be prolonged before opting for joint replacement, the better for the patient. In cases where surgery is needed, our surgeons utilize the least-invasive procedures and most cutting edge replacement techniques to speed your recovery.

Our team treats pain associated with joint conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Revision procedures for prior replacements that have worn out or failed

Clinical Trials

  • Retrospective Study to Assess the lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (LLIF) Surgical Approach (LLIF Retrospective Study)
    This will be a retrospective clinical study involving 80 patients that underwent Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion and Posterior Pedicle Screw Fixation using the PATRIOT TransContinental or CALIBER-L LLIF Spacer and REVOLVE or REVERE Stabilization Systems.
  • Prospective Study to Evaluate the Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion Surgical Approach (LLIF Prospective Study)
    The objective of this study is to gather clinical data and satisfaction ratings from patients who have undergone the MIS LLIF surgical approach using the Patriot TransContinental, CALIBER-L or INTERCONTINENTAL LLIF Spacer and REVOLVE Stabilization System for qualifying patients with 1-2 contiguous levels of degenerative disc disease (L2-S1) with mechanical low back pain and radicular symptoms. A total of 45 patients between 18 and 80 years of age will be enrolled and followed for 2 years with data collection preoperatively and postoperatively.
  • BioSET Prefix Study
    THis study is designed to evaluate the safety and preliminary effectiveness of one coating concentration of Prefix compared to iliac crest bone in approximately 22 skeletally mature subjects diagnosed with degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one vertebral level (L2-S1).
  • A Prospective, Non-randomized, Multi-Center Investigation of All-Suture-based Repair of Horizontal Meniscal Tears (STITCH Study)
    This study is seeking participants who may have a horizontal meniscus tear in their knee. Today it is unknown whether fixing a horizontal meniscus tear will result in a better outcome than the common approach of removing the tear. This research study will document whether a horizontal meniscus tear can hold together and heal if it is repaired with stitches. This study will also document any changes in knee pain and function after the procedure.
