Determining whether to undergo total joint replacement and revision surgery can be a big decision, but it's one that significantly improves the quality of life for most patients. Joint replacement surgery entails replacing a diseased joint—most commonly the hip, knee, or shoulder—with a well-designed and functional artificial implant. Joint replacement surgery is a necessary procedure when considerable cartilage loss occurs in your joint, causing bone-on-bone friction, debilitation, and overbearing pain. Additionally, revision joint replacement surgery is a required procedure when a worn-down joint replacement needs to be replaced and improved, there’s an infection in a replaced joint, or instability in an implanted joint.
At Sierra Pacific Orthopedics' Total Joint Center, our team of total joint replacement and revision surgeons is committed to ensuring the best possible course of treatment and outcome for you. Our surgeons have specialized training and experience in diseases and injuries of the hip, knee, and shoulder joints that may require reconstruction or replacement.
