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. This reduces bone-on-bone friction, thereby relieving pain and restoring mobility. At Atlantic Orthopedic Institute, we offer nationally-recognized joint replacement procedures using minimally invasive techniques. These result in smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery time and greater range of motion.
In fact, Morristown Medical Center was named among the top five percent in the nation for joint replacement six years in a row by Healthgrades and rated high-performing for hip and knee replacements by U.S. News.
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 and Morristown medical centers use the Mako™ Robot-Arm Assisted Surgery System to help plan and carry out partial knee, total knee and hip replacement surgeries. The system enables our surgeons to make very accurate cuts and precisely position the replacement while preserving healthy tissue.
