Elliot Orthopaedic Surgical Specialists
A Department of the Elliot Hospital
Total Joint Replacement:
- Elliot Orthopaedic Surgeons are specialists in joint replacement surgery. Elliot is one of the few places in the region where patients can access an entire continuum of services from diagnosis through the completion of post-operative rehabilitation.
- Some of the most common surgical procedures performed by our joint replacement team are replacements of the knees, hips and shoulders. These joints are among the primary weight-bearing areas in the body and consequently are prone to degradation and injury. Over time the joints can become stiff, emit pain from inflammation, and become injured or diseased either from specific events or from the natural effects of the aging process. Often when these joints are replaced, patients are given a tremendous sense of relief and are released from pain. Successful procedures provide patients will a new lease on life.
