Orthopedic care

Orthopedic doctors, called orthopedists, take care of bones and joints. This includes knee pain, total joint replacement, issues that impact your spine and more. You might need to see an orthopedist if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, or if you've had a recent sprain, strain or broken bone.

Our orthopedic treatments and services

Our surgeons will pursue the least invasive path to restoring your bone and joint health.

Orthopedic surgery

Our orthopedic surgical specialties include:

  • Adult joint reconstruction (hip, shoulder and knee replacements)
  • Hand and upper extremity care
  • Orthopedic care
  • Spine care
Advanced robot-assisted surgery

Our orthopedic team wants your recovery to be as quick as possible. Whenever it is an option, we will recommend a robotic approach to surgery.

Benefits associated with robotic surgery include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less tissue trauma
  • Minimal scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Smaller incisions
How does robot-assisted joint surgery work?

Our robotic arm software uses an imaging scan to create a 3D model of your unique joint. This model allows the surgeon to develop your personalized surgery plan. During surgery, the surgeon controls the robotic arm, allowing us to precisely position the implant, preserving healthy bone and tissue.

We offer robot-assisted surgery for:

  • Partial knee replacements
  • Total knee replacements
  • Total hip replacements

Joint replacement surgery

The goal of joint replacement surgery is to provide a pain-free hip, knee or shoulder that will last as long as possible and allow you to enjoy a normal lifestyle. Most hip and knee replacements performed today should last 10 to 15 years or longer.

Through our joint center, you will have access to:

  • Experienced orthopedic surgeons
  • Orthopedic therapists
  • Specially trained nurses and technicians

Orthopedic rehabilitation

Following surgery, you will participate in our coordinated, multidisciplinary physical therapy program. Our innovative regimen focuses on helping you regain maximum mobility with the ultimate goal of returning to an active lifestyle. Patient education and personal interaction with our staff are our priorities throughout your stay.

Family members are encouraged to participate with you in the recovery process by learning about special exercises, medications and follow-up care to help make the transition home a smooth one. Some exercise and therapy may be provided in a group setting, allowing our patients to support and encourage each other on the road to recovery.

Our Center for Joint Replacement

At the Center for Joint Replacement at TriStar StoneCrest, our board-certified orthopedic surgeons have taken additional training to care for your joint replacement needs. We will be with you every step of the way, from preoperative care to rehabilitation and beyond.

Why choose us for your joint replacement

Our staff has been hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills and their desire to deliver outstanding service. Additionally, they have been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care, whether you are undergoing a knee, hip or shoulder replacement.

Also, within our hospital, we have created a special area just for the care of our joint replacement patients. No hospital gowns for this crowd — you get to wear your own clothes after surgery.
