For patients living with chronic joint pain where even normal activities are challenging, joint replacement doctors may recommend arthroplasty, or joint replacement surgery, if your pain persists despite conservative treatment. Our joint replacement surgeons at Aspen Orthopedic Specialists are specialty-trained in joint replacement and can offer optimal, expert joint care. Joint replacement specialists are uniquely qualified to treat patients needing replacement procedures of the hip, knee, and shoulder, including total joint replacements or partial joint replacements.
Since surgical options depend on the patient's history as well as the location and extent of the damage, our surgeons thoroughly discuss each technique and procedure with each patient to determine the best approach. Our surgeons are well-versed in the different techniques and approaches to joint replacement surgery, such as total and partial knee replacements; total, partial, and anterior hip replacements; and total, partial, and reverse shoulder replacement procedures.
When considering joint replacement surgery, it's best to know and understand the importance of preoperative and postoperative care and rehabilitation in order for you to experience the best long-term outcomes after surgery. At our practice, we involve our patients in every step of their care and offer a full continuum of care to assist you both prior to surgery and postoperatively.
Know When It’s Time to Get Care From a Joint Replacement Specialist
Consult with a joint replacement surgeon if you notice any of these symptoms:
- Chronic knee pain or hip pain that impacts your daily activities
- Feeling clumsy or weak when you use the affected joint
- Limited mobility or range of motion
- Pain that keeps you up at night
- Inability to bear weight or walk normally because of knee or hip joint pain
You may also need to see a joint expert if you believe you have one of the following injuries or conditions:
- Arthritis (such as rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, or osteoarthritis)
- Cartilage damage (can be caused by an injury or arthritis)
- Sports medicine injury
We Offer You the Expert Joint Care You Deserve
Specializing in the conditions and injuries that may lead to joint replacement surgery, our joint replacement surgeons are expertly trained and equipped to assess, diagnose, and treat your joint pain, though surgery is often the last resort and second to any nonsurgical treatment options when those methods prove unsuccessful.
If you do require joint replacement surgery or a related surgery, we are here for you and our orthopedic surgeons can perform the procedure you need. This includes partial knee replacement and total knee replacement, traditional hip replacement and anterior hip replacement, and shoulder replacement. If you do not need a joint replacement, our doctors will be able to advise you as to which nonsurgical treatments are best for you. We also offer joint replacement options that are designed to be as unique as you are, such as Conformis customized knee replacement, an innovative option in knee implant technology.
