Joint replacement surgeons at the University of Wisconsin in Madison offer hip and knee replacement, including hip resurfacing, as well as elbow and shoulder joint replacement. Our UW Health orthopedic surgeons are fellowship-trained and recognized as experts in the field of joint replacement.
Hip and Knee Joint Replacement
