Total Joint Replacement: Orthopedic Surgery

When the covering that allows a normal joint to move freely and painlessly is worn or damaged, the friction of bone rubbing on bone results in loss of motion and a decreases a joint's weight-bearing capacity. In these cases, total joint replacement surgery, available at Atlantic Orthopedic Institute at Newton Medical Center, may sometimes be the best treatment option.

During the procedure, the bone surfaces within the joint are replaced with synthetic materials – durable, wear-resistant plastic or metal. Hip and knee replacement are typical examples of this surgery.

At Newton Medical Center, our orthopedic surgeons are board-certified and supported by a team of specially-trained nurses. They perform more than 100 joint replacement procedures annually using minimally invasive approaches whenever possible. This results in smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, and a greater range of motion.

What’s more, we coordinate care from initial education and pre-admission testing through post-acute rehabilitation, so that patients can recover as quickly and safely as possible. Most patients will be able to resume an active lifestyle.
