Don’t let joint pain slow you down. Performing more than 3,000 joint replacement procedures each year, our team of experts will get you back to a life in motion.
Is arthritis causing your joints to be painful, stiff or swollen? Does hip or knee pain affect your daily activities? These symptoms should not be ignored — you may be suffering from advanced joint disease.
The Penn Joint Replacement Program brings together a team of doctors, nurses and physical therapists who take a whole-body approach to diagnosing and treating hip and knee pain. These experts work together as a seamless unit to provide a wide range of treatments, not just surgery, and help you return to an active, pain-free lifestyle.
Current advances in hip and knee reconstruction techniques, such as minimally invasive surgery and computer-assisted surgery, allow patients to return more quickly to their favorite activities, and the use of technologically advanced materials such as ceramic bearings in joint replacement, provide long-term benefits.
