Paradise Valley Hospital is pleased to offer a new joint reconstruction
center in our beautiful seaside village-themed patient unit. Part of the
brand-new San Diego Spine & Joint Center, our new joint program offers
state-of-the-art joint replacement with highly skilled orthopedists at
an award-winning Top 100 Hospital in the Nation.
Joint pain, especially of the hip and knees, is typically a result of the
aging process as the cartilage that cushions the joints wears away over
time. This results in arthritis symptoms, such as stiff joints and inflammation.
Other factors play a role in joint wear, including genetics, occupation,
lifestyle, weight and injuries.
If you have tried physical therapy, pain medication, exercise and weight
management, but your joint pain is still interfering with your life, it
may be time to consider partial or total joint replacement. At the San
Diego Spine & Joint Center, we offer:
Partial Knee Replacement: Replaces only the damaged part of the knee cartilage with a prosthesis
(artificial joint made up of metal alloys and high-grade plastic). A partial
knee replacement preserves more range of motion and function because it
preserves healthy bone and tissue.
Total Knee Replacement: It is estimated that more than half a million Americans undergo total
knee replacement to recover function and the ability to enjoy life once
again. Total knee replacement replaces the knee with a prosthesis. Although
knee replacement surgeries have been taking place since the 1960s, recent
advances in the procedures and technology have made the knee replacement
much more human-like.
Total Hip Replacement: Hip replacement surgery removes damaged or diseased parts of a hip joint
and replaces them with a new prosthetic to improve movement, relieve pain
and improves the hip’s function.
Hip Preservation: Using a multi-disciplinary approach to hip pain, we provide comprehensive
diagnosis and treatment with the goal to allow patients to maintain an
active lifestyle through minimal intervention and the avoidance of extensive surgery.
