World-Class Joint Care Begins at the Region's Most Preferred Orthopaedic Practice—EmergeOrtho: Foothills Region

Our fellowship-trained or specialty-trained joint revision doctors are dedicated joint replacement and revision specialists board-certified in orthopaedic surgery and committed to providing patients with the compassionate, world-class care they deserve and need to emerge stronger.

Our joint revision surgeons are experts in examining, diagnosing, and treating joint-related injuries and conditions, including complications with implants. Additionally, they are highly skilled in performing joint replacement and joint revision surgeries, such as revision surgery for a knee replacement, hip replacement, and shoulder replacement.

How Our Joint Revision Surgeons Help Patients Emerge Stronger

When our joint replacement and revision specialists develop an individualized treatment plan for a patient with a joint- or implant-related injury or condition, their first step is to always look at nonsurgical care options that will help instead of recommending surgery. Sometimes, the joint problem can be solved without the need for surgery with treatments such as physical therapy.

However, if nonoperative treatment options fail to provide relief for the patient or their pain becomes debilitating, our joint replacement and revision surgeons will recommend a surgical treatment plan that is right for the patient. Our surgeons have undergone extensive training in not only joint replacement surgery but also revision surgery and are dedicated to using the latest treatment options as well as advanced surgical techniques. Specializing in a variety of joint replacement and revision procedures that can be used to treat implant- or joint-related problems, our surgeons are experts in the following procedures:

  • Joint replacement surgery, including total hip replacement and total knee replacement
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Revision hip replacement
  • Revision knee replacement

While surgery for a joint revision is similar to that of a joint replacement, they are not the exact same, which is why our specialists are dedicated to spending time to educate and provide patients with an understanding of the surgery, its benefits, and the recovery process. They also make sure they answer any questions the patient might have about their joint revision surgery or recovery.

Do You Need World-Class Joint Care or Revision Surgery?

If you have had a joint replacement in the past and are now noticing any of these symptoms, you should consider consulting with an orthopaedic doctor or surgeon:

  • Artificial joint feels unsteady
  • Beginning to experience joint pain or new sensations of discomfort

  • Experiencing bone-on-bone or grinding sensations
  • Joint pain
  • Knee replacement feels wobbly
