When it comes to joint replacement surgery, TriHealth Orthopedic & Sports Institute, partnered with Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, is the place to go. TriHealth has achieved these Joint Commission Gold Seal Awards:
Currently, our major complication and readmission prevention program can achieve results 10 times better and safer than national averages. Hip and knee replacement surgeries help people live better, healthier and potentially pain-free lives.
Arthritis, injury and age are the principle causes of hip and knee joint destruction. Cartilage gradually thins out, and soon thereafter bone rubs directly on bone so that pain increases and function declines. Cartilage lasts longer when people are healthy and avoid conditions like obesity and injury.
When pain and disability can no longer be controlled by medications, braces and walking aids then joint replacement is indicated. The surgeon, who knows the type of joint disease from which a patient suffers, will recommend the type of replacement. Patient life expectancy and health status influence what the surgeon recommends for surgical and recovery methods.
This surgery involves replacing the diseased or injured parts of the hip with an artificial implant, designed to function like a normal hip joint and to last for many decades.

Hip joint and knee joint replacements are helping people of all ages live pain-free, active lives.
Joints are formed by the ends of two or more bones connected by tissue called cartilage. Healthy cartilage serves as a protective cushion, allowing smooth, low-friction movement of the joint. If the cartilage becomes damaged by disease or injury, the tissues around the joint become inflamed, causing pain. With time, the cartilage wears away, allowing the rough edges of bone to rub against each other, causing more pain.
When only some of the joint is damaged, a surgeon may be able to repair or replace just the damaged parts. When the entire joint is damaged, a total joint replacement is done. To replace a total hip or knee joint, a surgeon removes the diseased or damaged parts and inserts artificial parts, called prostheses or implants.
