The Benefits of Knee and Hip Replacement
Knee and hip replacement surgery can relieve the pain and discomfort caused by arthritis (degenerative joint disease). In the past, joint replacement was limited to older and less mobile patients, but surgeons at UW Health also offer joint replacement to younger, more active patients with hip or knee arthritis.
In addition, UW Health is prepared to offer hip resurfacing, a new hip replacement technique recently approved by the FDA. Hip resurfacing might facilitate faster recovery and increased joint mobility, which is an important consideration for some hip replacement patients.
UW Health offers state-of-the-art facilities and services, including high-tech equipment and newer, less invasive treatments. Our experienced surgeons, nurses and therapists work together to provide comprehensive, expert care for knee and hip patients and their families.
