If you need total joint replacement -- including hip, knee, and other joints -- the Duke Orthopaedics team's experience and personal approach will help alleviate your pain and put you on the road to improved mobility.
While hip and knee replacements are most common, our surgeons’ expertise also extends to ankles, wrists, thumbs, shoulders, elbows, ankles, and other joints.
Surgeons at Duke Orthopaedics take an individualized approach to adult reconstructive surgery.
They recommend the surgical approach, the appropriate joint replacement prosthesis, and a customized rehabilitation program after careful evaluation of and detailed discussion with the patient.
A wide range of techniques, including vascularized bone grafting, arthroscopy of the hip and knee, partial joint replacements, and osteotomy (correcting deformed bones), are used in an effort to delay the need for an artificial joint. Many of these techniques were pioneered at Duke.
When these techniques fail to prevent joint replacement, Duke orthopaedic surgeons are committed to offering the most advanced replacement procedures available. These treatments include:
Specific orthopaedic training of our surgeons in adult reconstruction as well as access to cutting edge technology including computer-assisted surgery and patient-specific devices ensures that patients receive the highest quality care possible.
Duke Orthopaedics ranked sixth in the nation in 2011 according to U.S.News & World Report and patients come to us from across the U.S. and from around the world to receive our excellent standard of care.
