If you have pain or difficulty doing everyday activities – walking or going up steps, or enjoying hobbies like golf or riding your bike, joint replacement surgery may be a solution. Our Joint Replacement program is led by surgeons from Upper Bucks Orthopaedics at Grand View Health. Joint replacements are performed at our dedicated Joint Center located at our hospital in Sellersville, PA, convenient to patients in Bucks and Montgomery counties.
Individuals experiencing joint pain can schedule an appointment at one of our practice locations in Sellersville, Quakertown, Harleysville, Dublin, or Colmar.
Grand View Health has been recognized as a High Performer for Hip and Knee Replacement surgery by US News and World Report and is one of the first in the region to use state-of-the-art MAKO robotic technology for hip and knee replacement procedures.
Our state-of-the-art robotic assisted Mako technology can mean a quicker recovery, increased mobility and outcomes better than state and national norms.
Before surgery, a CT scan of your knee is taken to develop a 3D virtual model of your unique joint. Your doctor uses this model to evaluate your bone structure, disease severity, joint alignment and even the surrounding bone and tissue, so they can determine the optimal size, placement and alignment of your implant. This advanced planning process assures a high degree of precision when replacing your joint.
Grand View Health offers a minimally invasive, quadricep sparing technique for total knee replacement. Over time, the cartilage that cushions the bones can wear away, cause pain and discomfort. This can be due to conditions such as osteoarthritic, rheumatoid arthritis, disease or traumatic injury. Joint replacement surgery, also called arthroplasty is the replacement of a damaged joint with an artificial joint made of metal, ceramic and/or plastic parts.
With advances in surgical techniques, pain management and pre- and post-op care, it’s now common for many patients to return home the same day as their knee replacement surgery.
Grand View Health offers a minimally invasive direct anterior and posterior approach to total hip replacement, a surgical procedure where the worn-out surfaces of the hip are replaced with metal and plastic components. Hip replacement can reduce or eliminate pain, allow easier movement, and get you back to the activities you enjoy. Most patients can return home the same day as their hip replacement surgery.
Upper Bucks Orthopaedics offers many non-surgical options for the treatment of diseased or damaged joints. Our doctors work with their patients to carefully evaluate health and lifestyle goals to determine the best treatment.
