Partial Joint Replacement

Doctor pointed on area of hip joint

Our joints are an integral part of our mobility, and issues that affect them can severely impact our quality of life. When conditions such as osteoarthritis, trauma, and disease begin to impact the health of our joints, joint replacement may be your answer. Our joints may exhibit stiffness, pain, and swelling, resulting in a limited range of motion and difficulty walking or engaging in daily activities. Partial or total joint restoration may provide the relief you need while restoring mobility and boosting your quality of life. Dr. Hernandez helps patients throughout southern California with this procedure.

Discover How Total Or Partial Joint Replacement Can Help You

Joint replacement used to be a major surgical event, requiring approaches that impacted unrelated tissue and caused lengthy requirement times. Modern approaches to this procedure, known as minimally-invasive treatments, have made joint replacement faster, easier, and available to a broader range of patients. This approach to surgery produces significantly less blood loss and tissue trauma while providing superior results and shorter recovery times. The following points are some benefits of receiving total or partial joint replacement with Dr. Hernandez:

  • Smaller Incisions – Incisions of approximately 2-4 inches in length are used to access the treatment area, causing minimal damage to the surrounding tissues.
  • Reduced Tissue Trauma – Joints are complex systems composed of ligaments, tendons, and muscles that all contribute to the strength and stability of the joint. Limiting the tissue damage ensures you get all the benefits of your joint replacement without weakening these vital structures.
  • Shorter Hospital Stays – Minimally-Invasive approaches generally only require a few days at the hospital after your procedure. Sometimes, the patient may return home the same day with strict recovery instructions.
  • Faster Recovery Times – Minimally-invasive surgery has reduced recovery time from months to weeks. It’s often possible to return to limited activity even before you’ve reached a full recovery.

Total joint replacement is also known as arthroplasty. It is performed when the entire joint has become damaged and needs to be replaced with a prosthesis. This is often the result of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis. Partial joint replacement is known as hemiarthroplasty and is done when only a portion of the joint has been damaged and needs replacement. More specifically, it can only be used when the damage is limited to a specific compartment within the joint. It is most frequently used in knee and hip replacements.
