Our Approach to Total Joint Replacement Treatment

At The Orthopedic Clinic, we believe that surgery can be an effective option, but needs to be agreed upon by the physician and patient after other treatments haven’t helped.

If the physician and patient agree on surgery, we provide innovative, minimally-invasive treatments for total joint replacements. These treatments typically allow for faster recovery, less pain, and in some cases minimal bone loss. They include:

  • Fracture and orthopedic injuries of the shoulder, hip, and knee
  • Partial knee replacement, unicondylar arthroplasty
  • Anterior approach hip replacement
  • Total reverse shoulder replacement
  • Posterior approach hip replacement
  • Full knee replacements
  • Total shoulder, hip, and knee replacements

What is Total Joint Replacement?

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces parts of an arthritic or damaged joint with a metal, plastic, or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.

Patients may have trouble with ordinary activities such as walking, putting on socks and shoes, getting into and out of cars, and climbing stairs (depending on the affected joint and amount of damage).

Joint problems may be caused by:

  • Heredity (runs in the family)
  • Problems with joint development
  • Genetic (inherited) tendency to problems with the cartilage
  • Minor repetitive injuries
  • Severe trauma to the joint cartilage
  • Normal aging of cartilage and bone
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

The 3 Most Common Joint Replacement Surgeries

We primarily treat the hip, knee, and shoulder with total joint replacements. The most common treatments include:

Hip Replacement

Anterior Approach Hip Replacement
Performed on a special Hana table made of carbon fiber, we use an X-ray during the procedure to assist in successfully placing the replacement components. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Less cutting of the muscles
  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain after the procedure
  • Lower risk of hip dislocation
  • Typically performed as an outpatient procedure

Posterior Approach Hip Replacement
For this minimally-invasive approach, we cut muscles at the back of the hip through an incision, repairing and reattaching the muscles at the end of surgery. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain after the procedure
  • Typically performed as an outpatient procedure

Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
Unlike total hip replacement surgery, we remove only a few centimeters of bone, shaping it to fit tightly inside the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing implant. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Less bone removal
  • Lower risk of hip dislocation
  • Lower risk of revision
  • Typically performed as an outpatient procedure

Knee Replacement

Full Knee Replacement
We remove all of the damaged cartilage and a small amount of bone around the joint. Then we replace the removed cartilage and bone with metal components to recreate the surface of the joints and insert a spacer. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Improved mobility
  • Less time spent in the hospital
  • Typically performed as an outpatient procedure

Partial Knee Replacement
In unicompartmental knee replacement (also called “partial” knee replacement), only a portion of the knee is resurfaced. This procedure is an alternative to total knee replacement for patients whose condition is limited to part of the knee. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Improved mobility
  • Less time spent in the hospital
  • 99% are performed as an outpatient procedure

Shoulder Replacement

Having a limited range of motion in your shoulders due to pain can significantly put a damper on your activities of daily living. At The Orthopedic Clinic, we have several options for patients who are suffering from shoulder pain.

Total Shoulder Replacement
During a total shoulder replacement, one of our orthopedic surgeons removes your entire ball-and-socket joint, and replaces it with prosthetics. Among the benefits, a patient will experience:

  • Joint pain relief
  • Regain range of motion
  • Ability to do activities of daily living
  • Ability to go back to playing sports

Partial Shoulder Replacement
Partial shoulder replacement takes place when only the ball portion of the joint is replaced. The advantages of this approach are the following:

  • Joint pain relief
  • Removal of less bone

Shoulder Resurfacing
When only a portion of the joint is damaged, shoulder resurfacing is a good option. When a patient undergoes this surgery, the orthopedic surgeon only removes the top portion of the humerus (the long arm bone from the shoulder to the elbow) and replaces it with a metallic joint surface. Most of the joint remains intact. The advantages of this surgery in the patient who meets the specific surgical criteria are:

  • Less bone removal
  • Less pain
  • Quicker recovery

Total Reverse Shoulder Replacement
When a patient has significant tears in the rotator cuff, a traditional shoulder replacement surgery would not be helpful, since the damaged tendons would not hold the artificial joint in place.

However, Reverse Shoulder surgery is a practical option. During this type of procedure, the components are the same (a metal ball and a plastic prosthesis), but the metal ball is placed in the socket of the scapula, and the plastic cup is placed on the top of the humerus. The surgeon then inserts screws to hold the prosthesis in place.

The benefits of a reverse shoulder replacement surgery are:

  • It’s a good alternative for patients with a damaged rotator cuff
  • Deeper socket to stabilize the joint
  • Regain range of motion
