Joint replacement surgery

If the damage to your joint is severe, your orthopedic surgeon may suggest a joint replacement. A joint replacement is a surgical procedure to replace any damaged parts of your joint with artificial components (prostheses). The artificial implant creates a like-new joint, allowing your joint to glide and move smoothly and easily.

Our orthopedic surgeons perform:

If your surgeon recommends joint replacement, our hospitals provide comprehensive, personalized care and support for you throughout the surgical process. We also offer therapy services to help you get moving after surgery, promoting a healthy recovery.

Minimally invasive knee and hip surgery

At MountainStar Healthcare, we strive to bring innovative orthopedic treatments to our patients. One example of this is our use of robot-assisted surgical technology for total hip, total knee and partial knee replacement surgeries.

The robotic technology provides your orthopedic surgeon with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. Specifically, it uses imaging scans of your joint to create a 3D model of your hip or knee. Your surgeon uses this 3D model preplan and assist your surgeon in performing your procedure.

Limb preservation

Complex orthopedic conditions can sometimes put a patient at risk of losing a limb.
