    joint comm seal Mount Sinai West has earned Advanced Certification in Total Hip and Knee Replacement surgery from The Joint Commission, demonstrating our commitment to excellence in patient care for total hip and knee replacement.

    Hip and Knee Replacement

    Hip and knee replacements are the most common type of joint replacement, but surgery can also be performed on joints such as the shoulder and elbow. Reasons for joint replacement might include trauma fractures or disease such as arthritis. During joint replacement, diseased or injured joint surfaces are removed and replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis, which is generally made of metal and plastic or ceramic. These materials are designed to allow the joint to move more like your normal joint.

    Mount Sinai West orthopedic surgeons offer state-of the-art care for degenerative and trauma conditions of the hip, knee, and other joints. Our physicians have extensive training in all types of joint replacement, and utilize the most advanced implants and the newest approaches, such as the minimally invasive anterior approach for hip replacement, which allows many patients to leave the hospital sooner and recover faster. We also offer the unicondylar knee replacement, which allows a surgeon to replace only the diseased part of a knee joint.

    Mount Sinai West’s Multidisciplinary Staff

    Our multidisciplinary staff — including physicians, anesthesiologists, nurses, physical therapists, and others — all have special expertise in joint replacement surgery. We work together to give you the best possible care, from pre-surgery consultations to rehabilitation following your hip or knee replacement.
