Shoulder, Hip & Knee Replacement Surgery
The joints in your body – the areas where two bones meet – play a significant role in your mobility, such as allowing your arms and legs to move freely. The joints are lined with protective cartilage, which is a tough but flexible material that acts as a sort of shock absorber. However, if you sustain a fracture – or if you suffer from osteoarthritis – the affected joint may need to be replaced.
At Tri County Orthopedics in Farmington Hills, Michigan, our board-certified surgeons are experts at joint reconstruction – employing the latest techniques in knee, hip, and shoulder replacement. They perform a variety of joint reconstruction procedures to relieve knee, hip, and shoulder pain and to restore mobility, including:
Joint Replacement Surgeries
Total knee replacement
Partial knee replacement
Total hip replacement
Total shoulder replacement
Reverse total shoulder replacement
Depending on the purpose of the surgery, as well as which joint needs to be replaced, our doctors can replace the injured or worn-out joint surfaces using materials such as metal, plastic, polyethylene, ceramic, or a combination of these materials. Often, with hip and knee replacement or reverse shoulder replacement, our surgeons can perform minimally invasive procedures that can make your recovery time that much shorter and your rehabilitation that much faster.
When joint reconstruction surgery is not necessary, as in the case of chronic but not severe arthritis, our orthopedic doctors can help relieve your pain with joint injections. These include corticosteroid injections, hyaluronic acid (HA) injections, or other options, and these can relieve your joint pain for up to three months.
