Conditions We Treat
People choose hip and knee replacement for reasons such as:
- Arthritis, which can cause severe pain and swelling in the knee or hip, significant stiffness after sitting for a while, and loss of mobility
- Trauma fractures
- Congenital deformities
Mount Sinai West provides state-of-the-art care for degenerative and trauma conditions of the hip and knee. During joint replacement, we remove the diseased or injured joint surfaces and replace them with an artificial joint called a prosthesis, which is generally made of metal and plastic or ceramic. These durable materials recreate the normal anatomy of the joint and allow the new joint to move like a healthy one.
We use the most advanced implants and the newest techniques, such as:
- Anterior approach for hip replacement, which minimizes muscle disruption, shortens your hospital stay and speeds recovery time
- Unicondylar knee replacement, which allows us to replace only the diseased part of a knee joint
- Mako robotic surgical assist technology, which uses 3D imaging of your hip or knee for the most accurate placement of hip or knee implants
