Total Knee Replacement
The most common cause of chronic knee pain and disability is arthritis. Most knee pain is caused by one of three kinds of arthritis: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis. Treatment includes:
- Total knee replacement surgery involves removing the diseased portion of the knee joint and resurfacing the ends of the bones with the new prosthesis.
- Physical therapy

Partial Knee Replacement
There are three compartments in a knee joint: a medial and lateral compartment between the ends of the femur (thigh) and tibia (shin) bones and the third compartment behind your kneecap. If only one of the compartments in your knee joint is affected by arthritis, it is possible that a total joint specialist can resurface in just that one compartment, leaving the other two healthy compartments alone. If that's the case, you may be a candidate for a partial knee replacement.
Total Hip Replacement
The most common cause of chronic hip pain and disability is arthritis. Most hip pain is caused by one of three kinds of arthritis: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis. Treatment includes:
- Total hip replacement surgery involves removing the diseased portion of the hip joint. An artificial hip, known as a prosthesis, replaces it.
