Morristown Medical Center
Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which the bone surfaces of a joint are replaced with durable synthetic materials, such as plastic or metal, to reduce bone-on-bone friction, thereby relieving pain and restoring mobility. At Atlantic Orthopedic Institute, we offer nationally-recognized hip and knee replacement procedures using minimally invasive procedures that result in smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery time and greater range of motion. In fact, Healthgrades recently named Morristown Medical Center among the top five percent in the nation for joint replacement four years in a row (2016-2019).
Our orthopedic surgeons are on the forefront of many advancements, including hip resurfacing, minimal incision surgery, computer-assisted design and surgical navigation, and gender-specific knee technology. Overlook Medical Center uses the Mako™ Robot-Arm Assisted Surgery System to help preserve healthy tissue during partial knee replacements.

Our staff coordinates care from initial education and pre-admission testing through post-acute rehabilitation, so that patients can recover as quickly and safely as possible. Most are able to resume an active lifestyle.
Total Joint Replacement Education
We offer courses to our patients that fully explain what to expect from a total joint replacement procedure, including pre-surgical preparation, postoperative care and rehabilitation.
