Orthopaedics treatments and services

Cementless Knee Replacement

Cementless knee surgery uses the body’s natural healing ability. The new knee prosthetic has a specially-designed 3D-printed surface that helps bone grow over it, holding it in place. With bone instead of cement, the new joint may last longer. Cementless knee replacement can help the artificial knee last longer and possibly avoid a knee revision surgery. Learn more about cementless knee replacement.

Mixed Reality Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Mixed reality surgery can result in shorter operating times, less blood loss and less risk to the patient. Patients interested in a consult for mixed-reality surgery can contact Med Center Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Learn more about mixed reality surgery.

Treatment for a Sprained Ankle

A sprained ankle is the stretching or tearing of ankle ligaments, which support the joint by connecting bones together. Most of the time, your primary care provider can help. But if you have symptoms or instability that interferes with activities of daily living, it may be time to see an orthopaedic specialist.
