Our orthopedic services team includes surgeons, specialists, therapists and technicians. We have the expertise to provide the appropriate level of care for your needs. In fact, we are designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement for demonstrating expertise in knee and hip replacement surgery (2016).
We also received a high performing Knee Replacement and Hip Replacement procedure ranking from U.S. News and World Report for 2020 – 2021.
The anterior approach to total hip replacement is less invasive, hospital stays are shorter, and recovery and rehabilitation are quicker for patients. With smaller incisions and by going between the muscles rather than cutting them, the surgery is less painful. In addition, the minimal disturbance of the muscle also allows for a quicker recovery and rehabilitation. This approach is especially appropriate for patients who are active and eager to return to work and their daily activities as quickly as possible.
Osteoarthritis is the most common reason for knee replacement in the U.S. Osteoarthritis is the progressive loss of articular cartilage and degeneration of the knee joint due to aging or injury of the knee. Patients with severe destruction of the knee joint associated with progressive pain and impaired function may be candidates for total knee replacement.
Having someone who can help guide you through the surgical experience from before, during and after your hospital stay is important. At Sequoia Hospital, our Total Joint Patient Navigator is available to focus on you, answering any questions and providing the support you need.
