Total and Partial Joint Replacement


Beacon Bone & Joint offers both traditional and robotic-assisted surgery for joint replacement needs.

Traditional joint replacement surgery repairs and replaces painful, damaged joints such as your knee, hip or shoulder. The surgeon puts in a partial or whole new joint, plus other materials for strength and support. Using the latest in materials and procedures our joint replacement specialists can develop the perfect solution for your individual needs.

In addition to traditional surgery, our specialists are also able to use robotic-assisted techniques for knee replacements. Using a thin, flexible tube called a catheter and microscopic devices, our surgeons can view and treat a damaged knee joint. Benefits of choosing robotic-assisted total knee replacement include:

  • Less time in the hospital.
  • Reduced pain and discomfort.
  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection and minimal scarring.
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities.

Other joint replacement approaches include anterior (front) hip surgery. This provides more direct access to the hip than other methods, such as those from the back. This can help limit discomfort and speed healing.

In all joint replacement cases, your surgeon will evaluate your needs and discuss the best approach for you.

When is it time to consider joint replacement?

When your shoulder hurts during activity. When your knee hurts at the end of the day. When your hip is so sore it makes sitting uncomfortable or pain wakes you up at night. If you are frustrated because you can’t be as mobile as you’d like, it may be time to consider partial or total joint replacement. At Beacon Bone & Joint, you will get accurate evaluation and diagnosis, followed by leading-edge joint replacement procedures.

Our goal is to return you to maximum function. Inpatient and outpatient care options available along with follow-up physical and occupational therapy. That’s convenient, connected care.
