Joint Reconstruction

Advanced solutions for shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee pain

Our joints keep us moving. But that very fact makes them subject to painful injuries, wear and tear, and conditions that can limit our mobility and cause pain. Fortunately, Erlanger Orthopaedics offers the latest solutions to address a full range of joint conditions and injuries - including progressive or permanent damage as a result of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neurologic disorders, trauma and overuse. In addition to breakthrough non-surgical options, our fellowship trained surgeons offer the latest, minimally invasive joint replacement and reconstruction options. These options bring faster recovery, reduced post-surgical discomfort, and significantly improved outcomes.
