Total Knee Arthroplasty, also called a total knee replacement, is a surgical procedure that resurfaces a knee damaged by arthritis. Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that affects mostly middle-aged and older adults, is the most common indication for knee replacement. Osteoarthritis causes the breakdown of joint cartilage and adjacent bone in the knees.
Partial Knee Arthroplasty knee replacement is surgery to replace only one part of a damaged knee. It can replace either the inside (medial) part, the outside (lateral) part, or the patellofemoral part of the knee (under the kneecap).
Bi-Lateral Knee Replacement Surgery can be simultaneous or staged. Simultaneous bilateral knee replacement is when both knees are replaced during the same surgery. When each knee is replaced during a different surgery, it is called a staged bilateral knee replacement. In some cases, your surgeon may recommend simultaneous surgery to optimize your outcome. However, in most cases, patient preference is the main consideration.
The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System machine allows our surgeons to fully leverage their training to perform joint replacement surgery much more precisely, while reducing risks and providing each patient with a highly accurate and personalized surgical experience.
Total Hip Arthroplasty, also called total hip replacement, is a surgical procedure in which an artificial hip joint (prosthesis) is implanted to replace an arthritic or damaged joint. Colorado Advanced Orthopedics Surgeons utilize Direct Superior Approach for faster recovery and no restrictions on motion after surgery. We utilize RadLink technology to ensure excellent implant placement and alignment.
Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty, or shoulder replacement, is performed when the shoulder has severe osteoarthritis and a normal rotator cuff tear. Our surgeons utilize Tornier Blueprint to customize placement of implants to reduce risk of instability or early failure.
Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement, or reverse shoulder replacement, successfully treats patients with osteoarthritis and chronic rotator cuff tears, massive rotator cuff tears that are not reparable, fractures and shoulder arthritis with significant bony deformity. Tornier Blueprint is used to plan the surgery and optimize placement of implants.
