Joint Replacement (Arthroplasty)

Joint ReplacementAs cartilage, the connective tissue between joints, wears away with age and movement, it can cause rough edges of bone to rub together. When this friction begins to cause significant pain and impaired mobility, joint replacement is often the patient's best option. Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine offers less-invasive joint replacement surgeries that can greatly improve our patients' quality of life.

Our physicians perform the following treatments for joint replacement, using the most advanced materials and latest techniques:

  • Advanced techniques to minimize post-operative discomfort
  • Treatments for arthritic hips and knees
  • Hip and knee replacement
  • Revision of failed hip and knee replacements
  • Less-invasive hip and knee replacement surgery
