Total Joint

Hip & Knee (Hip and Knee)

Total joint replacement is a surgical intervention predominantly employed to substitute hip and knee joints.

At Optim Orthopedics, our squad of highly skilled, fellowship-educated orthopedic surgeons utilize cutting-edge methodologies and tailor-made procedures to fully excise the worn-out joint and tissues, replacing them with a prosthesis made of metal, plastic, or ceramic. The prosthesis is engineered to mimic the motion of a healthy, normal joint. This surgery enables patients who have been enduring pain for an extended period, primarily due to arthritis, to resume their active way of life.

Our healthcare team is acutely aware that undergoing any surgery can be a daunting experience. We accompany you through every stage of the process, offering comprehensive joint education classes and equipping you with all the necessary information, resources, and affirmative support to set you up for success throughout your entire journey.

Total Joint Replacement

Optim Orthopedics is committed to supporting individuals suffering from painful hip, knee, and shoulder conditions due to degenerative diseases that impact their everyday life.

Our patients commonly experience discomfort related to hip, knee, or shoulder arthritis.

During the initial stages of arthritis, providing pain relief can be relatively straightforward. However, as the condition progresses, the need for surgical intervention often becomes inevitable. The surgical procedures we commonly perform include hip, knee, and shoulder replacements, partial knee replacements, and revisions of previously replaced hip or knee joints. Our day-to-day involves aiding patients from the earliest stages of arthritis needing simple pain management methods to those requiring intricate revision joint replacements necessitating significant surgical intervention.

The advantage of having a Total Joint Specialist in our team is it enables us to concentrate on a narrow range of issues that sadly afflict many. This allows us to excel in managing patients with hip or knee arthritis and take total charge of the entire process from inception to completion.

On our website, you will discover all necessary details to schedule an appointment and explore potential treatment options for your condition. Additionally, you’ll find a wealth of information regarding the hip and knee conditions we manage and the various options available for hip and knee replacement surgery.

Arthritis - Total Joint Replacement

Arthritis is an umbrella term encompassing a variety of conditions characterized by the wearing out of the joint surface, or cartilage. This surface is typically smooth, facilitating pain-free joint movement. The reasons for its deterioration can be numerous, and in many instances, the precise cause remains unidentified. When this articular cartilage erodes, the bones start rubbing against each other, leading to discomfort. There are several conditions potentially resulting in arthritis, yet the specific cause is often elusive. While it generally affects individuals as they age, such as in the case of osteoarthritis, it is not exclusively an age-related condition.

Other causes include:

  • Childhood disorders e.g., dislocated hip, Perthe’s disease, slipped epiphysis etc.
  • Growth abnormalities of the hip (such as a shallow socket) may lead to premature arthritis
  • Trauma (fracture)
  • Increased stress e.g., overuse, overweight, etc.
  • Avascular necrosis (loss of blood supply)
  • Infection
  • Connective tissue disorders
  • Inactive lifestyle- e.g., Obesity, as additional weight puts extra force through your joints which can lead to arthritis over a period of time
  • Inflammation e.g., Rheumatoid arthritis
