Joint Replacement Surgeon Treating Patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, VA & Elsewhere on the Peninsula

Each joint replacement surgeon at Tidewater Orthopaedics is fellowship-trained and highly experienced in performing all types of joint replacement surgery, including the latest minimally invasive and computer-assisted techniques. Since our founding in 1973, patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, and the surrounding Virginia communities have continually entrusted their care to “The Specialist Group” on The Peninsula. With a commitment to providing highly individualized patient care, we take an evidence-based approach to treatment and tailor each plan to the unique needs of the patient.

For the right candidate, a hip, knee, or shoulder replacement can be a life-changing procedure; however, it is not recommended for everyone. During a personal consultation with a joint replacement surgeon at Tidewater Orthopaedics in Hampton Roads, a patient can fully explore all of his or her treatment options, including both conservative and surgical approaches. In general, a joint replacement procedure may be appropriate if a patient is experiencing:

  • Chronic, severe pain or stiffness that makes it difficult to walk, climb stairs, stand up from a seated position, or engage in other everyday activities
  • Insufficient relief from non-surgical treatments, such as medications, injections, and walking aids
  • Bone damage or deformity resulting from osteoarthritis or injury
  • Poor quality of life due to persistent joint pain

At Tidewater Orthopaedics, the joint replacement process begins long before a surgeon performs the operation. We fully educate our patients, helping them to understand the recommended procedure, as well as its potential risks, benefits, and results, and what they will need to do before and after surgery in order to ensure the best possible outcome. After surgery, physical therapy is vital to strengthening a new joint and enhancing the surgical results. Our on-site team of world-class rehabilitation specialists has helped many joint replacement patients rebuild joint strength and return to activities as quickly as possible.
