What is Arthroplasty?

If your knee or hip is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, and non-surgical treatments are no longer helpful, arthroplasty is often a viable option. 

Arthroplasty is surgical reconstruction or replacement of a malformed or degenerated joint. At Premier Orthopedic Specialists Of Tulsa, we specialize in orthopedic surgery for those who require total or partial knee and hip replacements, as well as ankle replacement surgeries.

The two most common procedures are the total knee arthroplasty and the total hip arthroplasty. Less common, but often just as successful in relieving joint pain, is total ankle arthroplasty. This procedure may be recommended if arthritis or degenerative joint disease makes your ankle stiff and painful. 

Knee replacement, hip replacement and ankle arthroplasty are highly technical procedures that should be performed by an experienced orthopedic surgeon. Premier Orthopedic Specialists Of Tulsa orthopedic surgeons have specialized training in arthroplastic surgery and will review your case carefully before recommending arthroplasty for you.
