Joint Replacement

Millions of people suffer from debilitating pain and stiffness in their joints. Whether your condition is caused from trauma, repetitive stress, arthritis or the result of a sports-related injury, our team of orthopedic specialists can offer relief and hope for a renewed quality of life. From initial diagnosis through surgery and rehabilitation, we provide compassionate care focused on your individual needs.

Saint Thomas Health has a strong tradition in repairing and replacing hips, knees and shoulders for patients living with joint pain that limits their ability to enjoy an active life. Each year we perform more than 1,500 joint replacements – and facilities that do more procedures have been shown to have higher quality care and better outcomes for their patients.

Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital was the first hospital in the region to perform a total hip replacement (1969), and many of Saint Thomas Health's orthopedic surgeons and caregivers (past and present) have been instrumental in developing new implants and instruments, protocols and physical therapy techniques for joint replacement.

Saint Thomas Health has one of the most advanced orthopedic care and rehabilitation programs and the most advanced surgical technologies in the region. Our team of specialists is able to offer improved outcomes for patients requiring hip, knee and shoulder replacement as well as other orthopedic procedures.
