Joint Replacement and Reconstruction
Joint replacement for relief of chronic pain
Advances in medical technology have made joint replacement therapy a highly effective option to treat chronic joint pain from arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases or injury. Lake Norman Regional’s multidisciplinary orthopedic care team includes orthopedic doctors, surgeons, pain management specialists and physical therapists who provide comprehensive care. We offer the latest advancements in orthopedic surgery, including:
- Total joint replacement for knees, hips, elbows and shoulders
- Hip resurfacing
- Minimally invasive options
State-of-the-art robotic technology for knee and hip replacement
Lake Norman Regional’s specially trained orthopedic surgeons can perform robotic-assisted surgical techniques to relieve knee and hip pain, offering a number of benefits over traditional knee and hip replacements, including:
- Optimal implant positioning that results in a more natural bending motion.
- Less pain and scarring, a shorter hospital stay, and a quicker recovery than traditional surgical procedures.
- As an arthroplasty procedure, robotic-assisted procedures are typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers. Check with your insurance provider to learn more about your coverage.
Partial knee resurfacing
Lake Norman Regional's surgeons can perform a minimally invasive technique to treat knee pain associated with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. During the procedure, surgeons resurface the diseased portion of the knee, sparing the healthy bone and surrounding tissue. This technique can offer patients a more natural knee motion than traditional procedures. Since healthy bone is preserved, individuals who undergo this procedure may still be a candidate for total knee replacement surgery in the future.
Total hip replacement
For those who suffer from hip pain resulting from degenerative joint disease, Lake Norman Regional’s orthopedic surgeons can use a minimally invasive robotic-assisted technique for hip replacement. During the procedure, surgeons use visual and tactile feedback and real-time data to prepare the hip socket for a more exact implant alignment, reducing complications such as excessive wear on the joint, unequal leg length, or dislocation.
