Orthopedic Joint Repair and Replacement
As our population ages, procedures like joint repair and replacement are becoming more common. In joint replacement, parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are surgically removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device. The device, called prosthesis, replicates the movement of a healthy joint.
Orthopedic specialists at Parkview DeKalb Hospital perform complete knee, hip and other joint replacements onsite in our dedicated orthopedic surgery center. But care isn’t isolated to the repair or replacement procedure. Parkview DeKalb Hospital offers the full continuum of care for patients before, during and after a bone or joint repair or replacement. From pre-surgical labs to post-operative physical therapy, patients can receive all the support they need close to home.
