Orthopedic Joint Replacement
We have three board certified and fellowship trained total joint orthopedic doctors who specialize in shoulder joint replacement, hip joint replacement, and knee joint replacement procedures.
Dr. Larson performs both hip replacement surgery and knee replacement surgery. Dr. Krushinski has expertise in knee and shoulder replacement. He is well qualified in reverse shoulder replacement as well. Dr. Xhaferi offers hip replacement through a direct anterior approach as well as performs total knee arthroplasty without the use of a tourniquet, both procedures resulting in potentially less pain and earlier recovery.
Some patients with shoulder arthritis will also have severe rotator cuff tears, being optimally treated with reverse shoulder replacement. Arthritis surgery is indicated when pain limits activity and quality of life suffers. If other, non-operative means such as arthritis medicine, injections, and physical therapy are not successful in controlling pain, then joint replacement should be considered.
Our surgeons do small incision and minimally invasive procedures to help minimize blood loss and speed recovery.
