Providence performs thousands of joint replacement surgeries every year, including:
- Total and partial knee replacement
- Total hip replacement
- Total shoulder and reverse total shoulder replacement
- Total ankle replacement
- Joint revision procedures
With today’s advanced surgical techniques and technologies, even the most painful and damaged joints can be replaced easily. After surgery, our patients often resume activities that they once thought would be impossible.
Partial joint replacement
In partial joint replacement surgery, the damaged ends of the bones and cartilage are replaced with implants that are shaped to restore more natural joint movement and function.
Total joint replacement
In total joint replacement, an orthopedic surgeon removes the damaged bone while preserving healthy parts of the bone, ligaments and muscle. The damaged bone is replaced with a highly polished prosthesis (artificial joint), which prevents the bones from rubbing together, creating a smooth joint.
