Joint replacement surgery removes damaged or diseased parts of a joint and replaces them with a joint implant. Our surgeons offer Hip, Knee, and Shoulder replacement surgery.
Joint replacement surgery may be recommended after more conservative treatments, such as lifestyle changes, physical therapy, and medication, are unsuccessful. It may also be recommended if pain limits and restricts mobility, making routine activities difficult.
Our approach to joint replacement surgery recognizes that our patients and their support system are important members of the care team. The White River Medical Center Orthopaedic Liaison and our staff work with each patient to coordinate education, surgical pre-admission testing, and insurance pre-certification necessary to prepare for surgery. Our goal is to improve mobility, relieve pain, and restore function for every patient allowing them to return to a healthy, active life after surgery.

Robotic Assisted Joint Replacement
Our surgeons use robotic assisted technology for partial knee, total knee, and total hip replacement surgery. Using the Mako® Robotic Assisted Surgical system, surgeons create a personalized surgical plan based on each patient’s unique anatomy. Clinical studies comparing Mako® Robotic Assisted Surgery to conventional joint replacement report the following:improvements in the fit and anatomical alignment of the prosthetic joint, reduced soft issue injury, lower pain scores, and higher satisfaction.
