We try our best to relieve hip pain with non-surgical methods, however, when hip pain is severe and interferes with daily activities and work, joint replacement may be an option.

Signs that it you should be evaluated for a hip replacement include:

Knee care

Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. The most common knee injuries include fractures, dislocation and sprains and tears of soft tissues. Many knee injuries can be successfully treated with simple measures, such as bracing and rehabilitation exercises. Other injuries may require surgery to correct. In either case, our specialists can help. When surgery is necessary, our doctors are experts in both partial and total knee replacement surgery.

Our pediatric orthopedics program focuses on returning kids to their active, normal lives. Typically, children need a pediatric orthopedic specialist for broken bones, growth plates and movement disorders.
