Joint Replacement / Revisions
The joints of your body are susceptible to injury and arthritis, as well as “wear and tear” associated with aging. As weight-bearing joints, your hips and knees are the most vulnerable.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and typically develops as people grow older. It erodes the protective cartilage that covers your joints, which allows the bones to glide smoothly during motion. When your cartilage erodes, the bones rub together, causing friction and pain. When non-surgical treatments can no longer help to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis, you may need surgery.
The orthopaedic surgeons at Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset in Greak Neck, New York are experts at joint surgery. Our surgeons utilize the latest in surgical techniques, including:
- Total hip and knee replacement
- Minimally invasive hip and knee replacement
- Hip and knee revisions
- Partial knee resurfacing
- Hip and knee arthroscopy
- Anterior approach hip replacement
Joint Replacement, Revision and Resurfacing
Joint replacement surgery, also called arthroplasty, involves removing the damaged portion of the hip or knee and replacing it with an artificial joint that allows for pain-free movement. Learn more about total hip replacement, total knee replacement, minimally invasive hip replacement and minimally invasive knee replacement.
Hip or knee revision surgery is performed to remove a previously implanted artificial joint and replace it with a new one. Revision arthroplasty may be necessary for a number of reasons. The artificial joint may loosen, infection may develop in the joint, one of the bones around the joint may be fractured, or part of the implant may break or wear down.
At Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset, our goal is maximum recovery of your hip or knee function with diligent follow-up care after surgery and a total rehabilitation program to get you back to the activities you enjoy.
