Joint Replacement Surgery
The larger joints in the body can deteriorate over time due to injury, wear, disease and other factors. Cartilage can dissipate, and bones can rub together, resulting in inflammation, pain and stiffness in the joints. When other orthopedic joint treatments cannot manage pain or allow joint function, the final solution is joint replacement surgery. Our experienced orthopedic surgeons at DOCS Health perform advanced joint replacement surgery at our state-of-the-art medical center in Los Angeles.
Replacement surgery for joint pain and dysfunction is never the first recommendation by our orthopedic specialists. Whenever possible, we want to help patients find effective, non-invasive treatments to preserve their natural joints. However, when too much cartilage has been lost and conservative treatments no longer provide pain relief or allow mobility, replacing the joint is the next logical step.

Those who have a damaged joint or cartilage from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or other disease and chronic pain that is not controlled with other treatments may be candidates for total joint replacement. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons can perform thorough examinations to determine if total joint arthroplasty may be the right option for you when other treatments are no longer effective. We offer the following types of joint replacement surgeries:
Total joint replacement surgery can be the solution to stop chronic joint pain and restore improved mobility.
