Expert Orthopedic Doctors  
Our orthopedic surgeons are board-certified in hip replacement surgery, knee replacement surgery, and shoulder replacement surgery and have unsurpassed expertise in both primary and more complicated surgeries.

Innovative Surgery Options
At St. John’s Hospitals, our surgeons use the latest surgical techniques to help ensure early and rapid mobility for our patients.

Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery
St. John’s is one of the only hospitals in the region that offers anterior approach hip replacement surgery. This proven technique minimizes pain and the time from surgery to recovery. We are familiar with a variety of implant materials and will thoroughly discuss which components are right for you, including partial joint replacement.

Pain Management
Scientific evidence has proven that giving patients medication prior to surgery can help ease the pain after an operation and during recovery. At St. John’s, we follow these protocols with our patients resulting in a more pain free recovery. We also avoid intravenous medications and try to give oral medications, which typically have fewer side-effects for patients.  

We encourage patients to start working with a physical therapist the morning after surgery. This process, called rapid rehab, gives patients an early start on rehabilitation and will ease and speed recovery.

Advanced Surgical Implants
Our orthopedic doctors use implants made of newer materials that have the potential to last a lifetime, minimizing the need to have additional joint replacement surgery later down the road.

Smaller Incision Surgery
Small surgical incisions are proven to preserve soft tissue and can minimize the trauma of surgery.

Pre-Surgical Classes
St. John's provides individualized instruction by the surgery prep nurse prior to a total hip replacement surgery or total knee replacement surgery. Learn more or make an appointment here.
