Joint Replacement

Joint Replacement

When stiff and painful joints keep you from participating in the activities you love, it's time to meet with our team of orthopedic experts to learn more about knee, hip, ankle, and shoulder joint replacement.

Every joint replacement consultation begins with a thorough physical examination and lifestyle assessment to determine the best path to manage your individual needs and optimize your recovery. If a joint replacement surgery is necessary, our surgeons have the specialized training and experience you'd expect from the best. With pre-operative education and preparation, state-of-the-art surgical techniques and post-operative recovery and rehabilitation programs, our team is dedicated to getting you back to the lifestyle you desire—as quickly and safely as possible.

From our orthopedic offices in Lake Tahoe and Carson City, your joint replacement surgeon and care team have formulated a step-by-step process designed to optimize your health prior to the procedure, improving surgical outcomes:

  • pre-operative education and preparation
  • state-of-the-art surgical techniques
  • post-operative recovery and rehabilitation programs

For pre-qualified patients, same-day knee and hip replacement surgery may be an option, allowing you to quickly begin your recovery from the comfort of your home.

Over half a million people a year are reaping the benefits of joint replacement. Generally, patients get back to walking, driving, dancing and light recreation within weeks of surgery. Our goal is to relieve pain and restore function so you can return to the activities you enjoy!
