Approximately one in five U.S. adults report physician-diagnosed arthritis—about 50 million people. And that number is expected to rise to 67 million in 2014.
Meanwhile, surgeons in the U.S. perform 600,000 knee replacements and roughly 300,000 hip replacements annually, and that's expected to increase to 3.48 million and 572,000 respectively.
You need doctors who know what they're doing. And since 1979, we've specialized in joint preservation and replacement with the goal of extending the life of a joint before a replacement is needed. We perform more than 1,000 joint replacements annually, and our combined experience totals more than 100 years.
By using cutting-edge technology including surgical navigation and computer- and arthroscopic-assisted techniques, we offer minimally invasive surgery to get you back to your life as quickly as possible. For example, we specialize in the anterior approach to hip replacement. This procedure spares muscle and tissue, allowing for faster recovery, improved mobility, and less pain.
We offer integrated joint reconstructive services with University of Colorado Hospital, where all physician care, testing, and therapy is provided in the same place by a core group of people. We also provide specialized joint care for those patients with hemophilia and bloodless surgery for patients who are Jehovah's Witness.
