The Joint Replacement Center

A stiff, painful knee or hip can make even walking difficult. At the award-winning Joint Replacement Center at Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center, we can help get you moving again. Our care starts before your surgery with our Total Joint Replacement Class and continues through your surgery and physical rehabilitation.

Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons perform hundreds of total hip and knee replacements every year, using safe, reliable procedures.

Who's a Candidate?

Most orthopedic experts think replacement is the best way to handle advanced arthritis in the knee or hip.

You may be a candidate for joint replacement if your ability to walk or perform activities is severely limited due to arthritis. A doctor will recommend surgery only after other methods have been unsuccessful or are not appropriate for you.
