Hip & Knee Pain
The pain experienced as a result of hip and knee injuries can vary from infected joint replacements to severe bone deficiencies. Our surgeons utilize the most innovative joint replacement methods. Cleveland Clinic Florida orthopaedic surgeons perform thousands of hip and knee procedures each year with successful outcomes for our patients. Our surgical team specializes in primary, complex and revision joint replacements, minimally invasive partial joint replacements, hip resurfacing and advanced arthroscopic techniques.
Cleveland Clinic Florida is one of the only hospitals in the region to offer minimally invasive direct anterior hip replacement surgery, an advanced procedure involving no muscle cutting. The procedure spares any invasion into the large muscle or tendon groups around the hip and is usually done through a smaller incision.
Minimally invasive direct anterior hip replacement surgery typically provides the following benefits:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery times
- Less pain and need for pain meds
- Less risk of dislocation and no need for postoperative restrictions in motion
- Use of assistive devices (walkers or canes) for shorter times (typically 7-10 days only)
