Total Joint & Total Joint Revision

One of the greatest technological advances for orthopaedic care is in total joint replacement and joint revisions. These orthopaedic surgeries involve replacing a severely diseased joint—most commonly the hip, knee, shoulder and ankle—with an artificial implant. This procedure becomes necessary when significant cartilage loss occurs in a joint, causing bone-on-bone friction and overbearing pain.

Unfortunately, the components used in replacing your joint don’t last forever or can fail. Common reasons for failure are wear, loosening, infection, fracture or breakage of the prosthesis. The failed prosthesis most commonly causes pain. Revision surgery is a treatment which replaces any worn or failed components. Pain relief is the primary benefit of joint revision surgery.

At Great Lakes Orthopaedic Center, our leading surgeons and surgical specialists have a track record of successful joint replacement and revision surgeries performed right here in northern Michigan. Our board-certified physicians will work with you and on-site physical therapists to create a tailored plan to get you back to an enhanced range of motion. By staying up to date on the latest top advancements, GLOC can provide a wider range of options for joint treatments that are less invasive and longer lasting. That means better outcomes and quicker recovery times for our joint replacement patients.
