Hip and Knee Orthopedics
If you are having hip or knee pain and are looking for the best care, our hip and knee orthopedic surgeons at UAMS provide comprehensive, personalized evaluation and treatment for patients with the most severely damaged hips and knees due to arthritis or other conditions as well as patients who want to be proactive in seeking treatment before their condition becomes more serious. Our caring staff uses state-of-the-art procedures for total joint reconstruction and also performs many other types of procedures.
Recent major advances in artificial joints with better materials and designs have led to hip and knee replacements that allow quicker healing and now last for years longer than previous joint replacements.
Our specialists have been at the forefront of a movement in recent years toward minimally invasive joint replacement, even helping develop techniques now being used across the country. Engineers are making better artificial joints, and our doctors are custom-fitting those joints for patients based on the patient’s size and bone type. This helps ensure a faster, safer surgery, a quick recovery and a better long-term outcome.
The conditions treated include:
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, contenital disease and others
- Minimally invasive surgery for partial and total joint replacement
- Musculoskeletal and joint infection
- Revision joint replacement
- Work-related and traumatic joint injuries
