Total Joint Surgery

otal joint surgery involves the replacement of a "worn out" joint with an "artificial" joint. Surgical treatment usually includes removal of bone and replacement of the diseased joint with a metal, plastic, or ceramic implant.

Joint replacement surgery may be necessary when badly damaged joints no longer move properly and cause severe pain. This most commonly occurs because of degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post traumatic arthritis arising from injuries. Surgical treatment is undertaken only after the patient has tried non-surgical treatments, such as medication, the use of a cane, the loss of excessive body weight, and/or modification of activity level. Total joint replacement surgery can reduce or eliminate your pain and return you to your active lifestyle.


Concord Orthopaedics is now offering total hip arthroplasty through the anterior muscle sparing approach. This surgical technique requires no cutting of muscle, no dislocation precautions post-operatively and a quicker return to walking without assistance of a walker, crutch or cane.
