Since 1979, the Adult Reconstruction Service at CU Orthopaedics has specialized in joint preservation and replacement in patients over the age of 18 years with the goal of extending the life of a joint before a replacement is needed. The division offers joint replacement for all major joints.
We utilize cutting edge technology such as surgical navigation, computer assisted methods, and arthroscopic assisted techniques to perform minimally invasive surgery and rapidly restore an active lifestyle. In addition, we use many different implants depending on patient need and an appreciation of an implant’s performance over time.
We offer integrated joint reconstructive services with University Hospital, in which all physician care, testing, and therapy are provided in the same system by a core group of people. Problems unique to each individual patient are addressed by our extended faculty of over 700 physicians representing all specialties of medicine.
Our combined experience totals more than 100 years and over 4,000 total joint reconstructions performed. We provide specialized joint care for those patients with hemophilia and bloodless surgery for patients who are Jehovah’s Witness.
