Total Joint Replacement Surgery for Patients in Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, VA & the Surrounding Areas
Even if total joint replacement is recommended, many patients hesitate – and sometimes endure years of unnecessary suffering – due to common misconceptions about the procedure. When facing the replacement of a shoulder, hip, or knee joint, it’s important to learn the facts from a knowledgeable orthopaedic expert. At Tidewater Orthopaedics, three of our nine fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons focus almost exclusively on joint replacement surgery. As the largest independent orthopaedic practice on the Peninsula, we’ve been trusted by patients from the Hampton, Newport News, and Williamsburg, Virginia, areas since 1973.
Today, more and more orthopaedic practices are adopting the “subspecialist” model – the same approach that Tidewater Orthopaedics implemented decades ago with great success. All of our surgeons have pursued additional, intensive training in their respective areas of specialty, and these vibrant and forward-thinking professionals have helped our practice earn the right to be known as “The Specialist Group” throughout Hampton Roads.
At Tidewater Orthopaedics, we offer the following types of total joint replacement procedures:
- Shoulder replacement
- Reverse shoulder replacement
- Direct anterior approach to hip replacement (“Jiffy Hip”)
- Total hip replacement
- Computer-assisted total knee replacement
- Robotic total knee replacement
- Revision knee replacement
- Partial knee replacement
The knowledge, training, and expertise of the total joint replacement subspecialists at Tidewater Orthopaedics – combined with the unique hospital in which they practice and our state-of-the-art physical therapy department – help to make each joint replacement patient’s experience second to none. And, even though our surgeons have performed these complex procedures numerous times and have fully mastered the intricacies of each, we recognize that every patient is an individual, and therefore we emphasize a highly personalized approach to patient care. Finally, it is well established that a high level of specialization within an orthopaedic practice results in fewer surgical complications and better patient outcomes.
