After years of stresses and strains that are a part of everyday living, the cartilage around our joints can begin to deteriorate. The reduced cushioning results in pain and discomfort while performing regular physical activity. The Knee and Hip are the two most common joints that tend to wear down through the years. While knee and hip pain can be treated in a variety of ways, joint replacement surgery is often the best option.
The Orthopedic Specialty Group specializes in joint replacement surgery of the knee and hip. Our team consists of skilled surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, and social works that will help you throughout the process to get you back living life as soon as possible.
Our surgeons perform total joint replacement for the knee and hip, where an artificial joint is implanted, and partial replacement or resurfacing where only the arthritic portion of the joint is repaired. Our team will help you determine which procedure will provide you with the best results.
Joint replacement surgeries are performed at all Intermountain Hospitals in the Salt Lake valley, including LDS Hospital, recognized as one of America’s Best Hospitals in Orthopedics. More total joint surgeries are performed at LDS Hospital than any other hospital in Utah. That experience adds up to better results for our patients.
