The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has long been at the forefront of joint repair surgical care, providing innovative treatments that have helped make our orthopaedic program one of America’s best, according to U.S. News & World Report.
Our Hip and Knee Replacement Programs provide a full range of surgical options, including total and partial joint replacements. Our surgeons employ the latest technology, such as custom 3D-printed knee implants, robotic navigation for surgeries, and imaging capabilities that allow us to better evaluate the condition of each patient’s injured joint and recommend a surgical approach tailored to their needs.
Our hip and knee replacement surgeons are pioneers in the use of innovative minimally invasive procedures that are less disruptive to our patients lives, resulting in less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery. We have replaced the joints of thousands of patients, including former NFL players and Olympic athletes. In every case, our goal is to eliminate pain, improve mobility and get you back to doing the things you love as quickly as possible.
Optimizing your health, every step of the way
Our team’s comprehensive approach to joint replacement ensures a smooth, fast recovery before, during and after surgery. We ensure our patients’ health is optimized before surgery by addressing their medical and physical condition.
Through our advanced pre-rehabilitation program, most patients also undergo a pre-rehabilitation exercise program that has been proven to quicken recovery following a hip or knee replacement surgery.
After surgery, we focus on getting patients home fast, with less pain. Advances in pain management allow our clinical team to begin physical therapy shortly after surgery. In addition to preparing all patients for surgery, we work on a plan to ensure the post-surgery realities will be easier to manage.
We are dedicated to working with our referring physicians. If you would like to refer a patient for a knee replacement procedure, please call 1-800-MD-TO-BWH (1-800-638-6294) or see our list of referral options.
