Welcome to our Joint Replacement Center
Our joint replacement and revision surgeons integrate all aspects of specialized care by collectively combining their knowledge, experience, and expertise as the foundation of the Joint Replacement Center at Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute.
Our orthopedic surgeons are specialty-trained in adult reconstruction and have dedicated their practices to this specialized field of study. With their commitment to continued education through attending courses, lecturing, writing, and actively learning the newest procedures and techniques, our surgeons are some of the most highly skilled joint replacement surgeons in the area.
Committed to delivering the highest level of care, our specialty-trained surgeons use the latest, evidence-based techniques to offer the most advanced and effective treatments, including outpatient joint replacement, where you can leave the hospital or surgery center the same day of your procedure and recover from the comfort of your own home.
