Joint Replacement & Revision

Joint replacement surgery performed on a degenerated or damaged joint can help a patient return to a formerly active and pain-free lifestyle.  The decision to pursue surgical intervention is often a result of increased pain and exhaustion of conservative treatment options.  The COASC offers total joint replacement for knees, hips, and shoulders. Dr. Michael Higgins, Dr. Colin Kingston, Dr. Loel PayneDr. Nicholas Sablan and Dr. Robert Mason all perform total joint replacement surgery for patients.

Procedures

Total Shoulder Replacement

Total shoulder replacement is a procedure that replaces the damaged or diseased shoulder with an implant to restore function and eliminate pain.  The shoulder socket is reshaped, and the implant is inserted into the shoulder. The surgeon rejoins the components to form the new shoulder joint.  Patients are often recommended physical therapy after this procedure.

Total Knee Replacement (Computer-Assisted Robotic Knee Replacement)

Total knee replacement with computer assistance is a procedure that replaces the damaged or diseased knee with an implant to restore function and eliminate pain.  Implants are precisely aligned within the knee joint using the robotic assisted technology. The hardware is less invasive, and the computer allows the surgeon to track positioning throughout the surgery.  The surgeon will guide the leg through a series of motions while the computer tracks the motion. The computer will automatically determine the cuts and guide the saw throughout the surgery. When the procedure is complete the patient is monitored, and physical therapy is needed. 

Total Hip Replacement, Anterior Approach

Total hip replacement with anterior approach is a procedure that replaces the damaged or diseased hip with an implant to restore function and eliminate pain.  The anterior incision allows the surgeon to work between the muscles of the hip and help minimize recovery time. The implant consists of a ball and socket and they are inserted to create a new hip joint.  Patients are often recommended physical therapy after this procedure.
