Joint Replacement

New procedures, improved implants and more sophisticated surgical techniques are creating a quiet revolution in the area of joint replacement for both hips and knees.

The orthopedic surgeons at Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital are doing things today in joint replacement that weren’t imaginable even three years ago, including minimally invasive techniques using a robotic arm that allow for more enhanced accuracy and a more customized procedure for every person.

Minimally-invasive total joint replacement—now accounting for 50% of all orthopedic surgeries performed at Emory Saint Joseph’s—has been shown to speed both surgery and recovery times for many orthopedic patients. This represents a major improvement on the surgical intervention procedure used for more than 20 years.

New procedures and prostheses for rotator cuff tears for patients facing shoulder replacement surgery are making a significant difference in recovery time and movement post-surgery.

Emory Saint Joseph’s has been recognized as one of the top 50 US hospitals for joint replacements.
