If anti-inflammatory medicine and physical therapy don’t improve your quality of life, your doctor may recommend joint replacement surgery. At Intermountain Logan Regional Orthopedics we specializes in joint replacement surgery of the knee, hip, and ankle. Our caregivers include skilled surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, and social workers that will help you throughout the process to get you back living life as soon as possible.

Why Joint Replacement?

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. Joint replacement can provide relive from pain and discomfort when other treatments haven't worked. You will also be able to get back to your daily activities.

Knees, Hips, and Ankles

The knee and hip are the two most common joints that tend to wear down through the years. This can cause crippling pain, swelling, stiffness, and disability. While knee and hip pain can be treated in a variety of ways, joint replacement surgery is often a great option. We also specialize in ankle replacement surgery, which is an alternative to ankle fusion. Similar to joint and hip replacements, ankle replacements may be necessary to deal with issues such as osteoarthritis, one of several types of arthritis.
