  • Total shoulder replacement
  • Reverse shoulder replacement
  • Partial shoulder (hemi) replacement
  • Shoulder replacement revision

Knee replacement

Our orthopedic surgeons resurface or cap the ends of the bones damaged by arthritis or injury with a prosthetic (or artificial) implant made from metal or plastic.

Candidates for knee replacement surgery

You may be a candidate for knee replacement surgery if you:

  • Experience knee pain with activity
  • Feel pain even while resting
  • Wake up during the night due to knee pain
  • Have difficulty sitting, climbing stairs or bending down
  • Have tried other treatments such as diet, exercise and medications, without success

Contact one of our knee specialists if you experience any of these symptoms.

Types of knee replacement surgery we offer

We offer many options to fit your goals and lifestyle, including:

  • Total knee replacement (knee arthroplasty): It involves all three bones (thigh, shin and kneecap) that form the knee joint. Implants vary depending on your weight, size and activity level.
  • Partial knee replacement (knee resurfacing): Our orthopedic specialists can spare healthy tissue and bone with a less invasive procedure when damage is limited to a portion of the knee (inside, outside, or front).

Hip replacement in central Virginia

Hip replacement surgery, or hip arthroplasty, resolves hip pain caused by injury from fractures, conditions like avascular necrosis or severe arthritis. The result is better stability, mobility, function and less pain.

Candidates for hip replacement surgery

Schedule an appointment with one of our experts if you:

  • Experience hip pain or stiffness after sitting for a long time, or getting out of bed
  • Have pain, swelling or tenderness in the hip joint
  • Hear or feel “crunching” in the hip joint
  • Have tried other treatments, such as medicines and physical therapy, without success

Types of hip replacement surgery we offer

  • Total hip replacement: Orthopedic surgeons replace the ball of the thighbone and socket of the pelvis bone with prosthetic (or artificial) pieces made from metal, ceramic and/or plastic. The procedure involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone and implanting the prosthetic joint.
  • Traditional and direct anterior (front) hip replacement techniques: The direct anterior (front) hip replacement is minimally invasive and requires smaller incisions with less trauma to tendons and muscles. This means faster recovery and less pain than traditional approaches.
