Joint Replacement

Care to help you get moving again

Joint Replacement Care at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth

Your joints keep you moving. But damaged joints can cause a lot of pain. They can also make it hard to accomplish even simple tasks and keep up with your busy life. In some cases, joint replacement surgery can help.

At BID Plymouth, our orthopedic surgeons offer a range of joint replacement surgeries. They use minimally invasive techniques to help you recover quickly and get back to a pain-free life.

Non-Surgical Care

Before recommending surgery, we can help you explore other treatment options first. These include physical therapy, medication or at home treatments like RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).

We will also provide resources to help manage your care and recovery after joint replacement surgery.

Knee Replacement

When it comes to knee replacements, the surgeons at BID Plymouth use cutting-edge robotic technology. These tools can reduce recovery time and preserve healthy tissue.

We offer the following knee replacements:

  • Partial knee replacement. Partial knee replacements are used to relieve pain caused by joint degeneration and osteoporosis. Because these conditions only affect part of your knee, our surgeons can leave healthy bone and tissue alone.
  • Total knee replacement. During a total knee replacement, your surgeon will replace the entire knee joint. This is done most often for people who are in the latter stages of osteoporosis.


Shoulder Care and Surgery

Our orthopedic specialists have extensive experience treating a range of shoulder problems. These include arthritis and torn rotator cuffs.

We offer these shoulder surgery procedures:

  • Total shoulder replacement
  • Reverse shoulder replacement
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Minimally invasive shoulder reconstruction
  • Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
