At Queen of the Valley Medical Center, we understand how debilitating and limiting it can be to live with knee, hip or any type of joint pain. Our care team helps you find your best path forward, whether you need advanced pain-management therapies or joint replacement surgery. You should speak with an orthopedic provider if you:

  • Suffer from constant or ongoing joint pain
  • Have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Have decreased mobility
  • Are unable to put weight on your joint
  • Feel stiff after sleep or sitting
  • Have difficulty sitting up and down or going up stairs 

Our orthopedic surgeons use minimally invasive techniques and robotic-assisted MAKO® technology to reduce your pain and speed your recovery. You receive 24/7 attention from expert joint care nurses during your hospital stay.

  • Surgical Options and MAKO® Technology

    One of the most common causes of knee pain is arthritis. Conservative treatments such as steroidal and non-steroidal drugs, and physical therapy may effectively relieve pain and restore mobility. However, more severe pain and disability may require knee resurfacing (replacement) surgery. MAKO® enables our orthopedic surgeons to perform minimally invasive total knee replacement and partial knee resurfacing, and total hip replacement procedures using advanced robotic-arm assistance. The innovative technology allows for consistent, surgical precision and improved outcomes for those who suffer from joint pain.

    MAKO® for knees helps surgeons precisely resurface only the arthritic portion of the knee thanks to precise technology and less impact on the healthy parts of your knee. MAKO® for hips offers pinpoint accuracy and a faster recovery, because of how the technology prepares the joint and implant resulting in a more natural-feeling joint.

    MAKO® benefits include:

    • Better outcomes
    • Faster recovery
    • Fewer complications
    • Less scarring
    • Shorter hospital stays
    • Smaller incisions

    Types of surgeries include:

    • Total and partial knee replacement
    • Total and partial hip replacement
    • Joint revision procedures for the ankle, elbow, hip, knee and shoulder
  • Non-surgical Options

    The right combination of conservative therapies can help preserve joint function and possibly relieve pain. We offer:

    • Guidance on diet changes and nutritional supplements
    • Hot and cold therapy
    • Oral and topical medications
    • Pain-relieving injections
    • Physical therapy
    • Therapeutic exercise programs
