Joint replacement for relief of chronic pain
Advances in medical technology have made joint replacement therapy a highly effective option to treat chronic joint pain from arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases or injury. Bayfront Health Brooksville’s comprehensive joint replacement program draws from the expertise of a multidisciplinary care team including orthopedic doctors, surgeons, pain management specialists and physical therapists. We offer the latest advancements in joint replacement surgery, including:
- Total joint replacement
- Knee resurfacing (MAKOplasty)
- Anterior approach to hip replacement
Anterior Approach to Hip Replacement
Patients having a hip replacement at Bayfront Health Brooksville have the potential for less pain, faster recovery and improved mobility through an innovative procedure called the anterior approach to total hip replacement. During this procedure, orthopedic surgeons work between the patient’s muscles and tissues, so there is no cutting through major muscle groups. This results in fewer traumas to the patient’s tissue, meaning less pain, a quicker recovery and fewer complications. To find an orthopedic surgeon trained in the anterior hip approach, call our free physician referral service at (352) 754-3230.
State-of-the-art robotic technology for knee replacement
Bayfront Health Brooksville’s surgeons can can offer a minimally invasive option to alleviate knee pain associated with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. Surgeons use the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System to perform MAKOplasty® partial knee replacement, a procedure that allows them to resurface the diseased area while sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. The digital tracking system constantly monitors and updates the patient’s anatomy and allows the surgeon to make real-time adjustments to optimize implant positioning and placement.
MAKOplasty offers a number of benefits over traditional knee replacement techniques, including:
- Optimal implant positioning that results in a more natural knee motion.
- Less pain, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
- As a knee arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplasty is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
