Total Replacements For Knees, Hips, Ankles and Shoulders

The muscles, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, joints and skeleton are part of the locomotor system that drives the human body. When one of those parts fails, our orthopedics team can get you and your body back on the move.

That kind of recovery is only possible by relieving the joint pain caused by damaged cartilage cover the bone end of your joint. If you’re putting up with the pain, it can weaken the surrounding muscles which can then make it harder to move the joint.

Total joint replacement is only considered when all other pain relieving treatment options are ruled out. At Windham Hospital, we offer two options for replacement surgery, including one using our Mako robotic arm-assisted technology, and can use revision surgery if a previous knee or hip implant has worn out.

If you are scheduled for joint replacement surgery, you must complete pre-surgery education to become an informed participant in your own recovery.

  • Revision surgery for previously implanted or worn out knee or hip prosthesis.
  • Less invasive surgery is used to reduce trauma to the muscle and shorten recovery and required rehabilitation.
  • The latest innovations in material and design, including Stryker Triathlon Knee System.
  • Injections for the knee to increase lubrication and decrease pain.
  • Pre-surgery education programs to inform you about your upcoming surgery.
