Conditions like arthritis can damage the cartilage that cushions the point where bones meet, such as the knee and hip joints.

When this pain is severe and interferes with daily activities, total joint replacement, a highly successful procedure that works when other methods have failed, may be the answer.

A total shoulder replacement for example, provides relief and increases range of motion. If you have constant pain and trouble performing your daily activities a total shoulder replacement may be an option for you. Total shoulder replacements are a treatment option for other conditions as well such as a torn rotator cuff and a broken shoulder.

Our experienced orthopedic surgeons are part of a team that includes anesthesiologists, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and social workers who guide patients considering joint replacement from pre-surgery education through post-operative rehabilitation.

Many of our surgeons are part of the University of Maryland Joint Network, a group of surgeons known for advanced expertise in total knee and hip replacement. This experience and expertise results in lower infection rates and better outcomes overall.
