Joint Replacement Surgery Specialties
Choosing to undergo joint replacement surgery is no small decision. This surgical procedure replaces damaged or diseased parts of a joint with new, man-made parts. These are often made of plastic, metal, or ceramic. Hip and knee joint replacements are the most common; however, other joints such as the shoulder, elbow, wrist, or ankle can also be considered in some cases.
Your orthopedic surgeon may recommend joint replacement to relieve pain and increase your mobility. Joint replacement surgery is typically recommended after nonsurgical treatments, such as physical therapy, have been attempted. Our team at Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster will help you understand your joint recovery and replacement options.

In arthroscopy, the surgeon utilizes a small camera and miniature surgical tools, and the procedure is performed entirely through small incisions. This surgical approach offers many benefits, including increased visibility and decreased incision size, resulting in less trauma to the skin and soft tissues, less swelling and pain and, in most cases, a faster healing time.
Some of the most common joint disorders we treat include:
