Joint replacement procedures
The Joint Replacement Program at MountainView Hospital offers a team of experts and orthopedic surgeons who will be there for you every step of the way.
We offer shoulder and ankle care as part of our orthopedic program, as well as arthroscopic surgery. We can also treat fractures and arthritis, as well as perform the following procedures:
Total knee replacement
Total knee replacement surgery is very effective in relieving nearly all knee pain. A knee replacement is a resurfacing of the knee joint. Doctors cover the femur or thighbone with a metal covering and place plastic on the tibia, so the metal and plastic implants smoothly glide against each other, much like natural cartilage.
In most cases, they will replace the undersurface of the kneecap with a plastic surface so that this glides with the femoral surface.
After knee replacement, you should be able to perform regular activities such as walking, bicycling, golfing, and swimming. The prosthesis is not designed for impact-loading sports such as skiing, basketball, and racquetball. However, some people have been able to play doubles tennis with bilateral knee replacements.
Total hip replacement
Most patients who need hip replacement surgery have osteoarthritis. This condition, which affects about 30 million Americans, occurs when cartilage on the end of bone begins wearing away, causing pain and stiffness. But when the cartilage wears away completely, the bones rub directly against each other, and the patient then needs a hip replacement.
Other degenerative hip diseases leading to hip replacement surgery include avascular necrosis. In this condition, the head of the femur loses some of its blood supply and dies. Hip fractures and some childhood hip conditions can also lead to degeneration many years after an injury.
Hip replacement surgery can add to your quality of life and help you quickly return to many of your daily activities.
