The Akron General Orthopaedic Institute has a history of outstanding clinical joint replacement results in treating damaged joints due to arthritis, birth defects, damaged cartilage, and traumas, such as car crashes and falls. The goal of any joint replacement is to provide a higher level of functioning and mobility so that patients can put their lives back into motion.

Our specialists are skilled in:

  • Knee joint replacement
  • Hip joint replacement
  • Shoulder joint replacement

We also offer a unique education program for patients who are scheduled to have hip or knee replacement surgery, called Joint Camp. Designed for patients and caregivers, this program can help families know what to expect after surgery, during recovery and rehabilitation.

Akron General offers orthopaedic rehabilitation at one of our convenient community locations as well as Edwin Shaw Rehabilitation or available in your own home through Akron General Visiting Nurse Service.
