What We Do PDF Print E-mail

Nowadays, people experiencing the effects of arthritis are increasing. As the baby boomers get older, many of them would like to continue the active lifestyle that they have grown accustomed to. At the moment, majority of these patients go to India, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines for lower cost surgeries.

We, at Advanced Orthopedics for Joint Replacement (AOJR), provide the following joint replacement and other orthopedic services with high-quality, utmost care and understanding to our patients needs.


Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement (TKR), also referred to as total knee arthroplasty (TKA), is a surgical procedure where worn, diseased, or damaged surfaces of a knee joint are removed and replaced with artificial surfaces.


Unicondylar or Partial Knee Replacement

Unicondylar or Partial knee replacement replaces only the area of the knee that is worn out, the most damaged areas of cartilage, and replaces these surfaces sparing patients the more medically complicated and involved total knee replacement surgery.


Total Hip Replacement and Partial Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement replaces your arthritic hip joint and eliminates the damaged bearing surfaces that are causing you pain. The design of the implant offers you renewed stability and minimizes the wear process.


Total Elbow Replacement

Total elbow replacement surgery (arthroplasty) can help restore comfort and function to elbows damaged by rheumatoid arthritis. In elbow arthritis the joint surface is destroyed by wear and tear, inflammation, injury, or previous surgery. Elbow joint replacement can be effective primarily in the management of severe elbow involvement from rheumatoid arthritis.


Hip Joint Resurfacing

Hip resurfacing is an alternative to standard hip replacement surgery used for the treatment of severe hip arthritis. Hip resurfacing surgery is a possible consideration for patients with severe hip arthritis.


Arthroscopy Services

Arthroscopy is commonly performed on the knee, shoulder, and ankle. It also can be done on the hip, elbow, and wrist. Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows your doctor to look at the inside of a joint in your body through a thin viewing instrument called an arthroscope. This procedure can be used to diagnose a joint problem, perform surgery that repairs a joint problem, remove a loose or foreign body, or monitor a disease or the effectiveness of a treatment.


Arthroscopy ACL Reconstruction

ACL reconstruction is surgery to replace torn ligament. The ACL is a ligament in the center of your knee that prevents the shin bone (tibia) from moving forward on the thigh bone (femur). A tear of this ligament can cause your knee to give way during physical activity.


Arthroscopy Meniscus Surgery

A meniscus tear is a common injury to the cartilage that stabilizes and cushions the knee joint.


Arthroscopic Subacromial Decompression

Arthroscopic Subacromial Decompression is a relatively non-invasive procedure for the treatment of Subacromial Impingement Syndrome. Arthroscopic subacromial decompression is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed on an outpatient basis. It results in minimal to no scaring, little if any pain, and rapid return of function.


Viscosupplementation injection for arthritis of the knee

A procedure that involves the injection of gel-like substances (hyaluronates) into a joint to supplement the viscous properties of synovial fluid. Currently, hyaluronate injections are approved for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee in those who have failed to respond to therapy that is more conservative.
