Hip & Knee

This means our team exceeds national standards with superior outcomes and a patient-center approach throughout diagnosis, surgery, and rehabilitation therapy. Our commitment is to relieve your knee or hip pain quickly, so you can enjoy an active life.

Knee Replacement - Relieving Your Pain

Knee replacement surgery, also called knee arthroplasty, relieves pain and restores joint function. It involves resurfacing or capping the ends of the bones damaged by arthritis or injury with a prosthetic (or artificial) implant made from metal and plastic.

We use the latest advancements and minimally invasive techniques. We also offer customized implant solutions which means a better fit, faster recovery, and enhanced function.

Candidates for Knee Replacement Surgery

  • Experience knee pain with activity
  • Feel pain even while resting
  • Wake up during the night due to knee pain
  • Have difficulty sitting, climbing stairs, or bending down
  • Tried other treatments such as diet, exercise, and medications, without success

Types of Knee Replacement Surgery We Offer

We offer options to fit your goals and lifestyle, including:

  • Total knee replacement: Involves all three bones (thigh, shin, and kneecap) that form the knee joint. Implants vary depending on your weight, size, and activity level.
  • Partial knee replacement: When damage is limited to a portion of the knee (inside, outside, or front), we can spare healthy tissue and bone in a less invasive procedure. Partial knee replacement is also called knee resurfacing.

Hip Replacement —Restoring Range of Motion

Hip replacement surgery, or hip arthroplasty, resolves hip pain caused by injury from fractures, conditions like avascular necrosis, or severe arthritis. The result is better stability, mobility, and function, and less pain.

Candidates for Hip Replacement Surgery

Schedule an appointment with one of our joint experts if you:

  • Experience hip pain or stiffness after sitting for a long time, or getting out of bed
  • Have pain, swelling, or tenderness in the hip joint
  • Hear or feel “crunching” in the hip joint
  • Have tried other treatments such as medicines and physical therapy, without success

Types of Hip Replacement Surgery We Offer

Terre Haute Regional Hospital specializes in total hip replacement. Surgeons replace the ball of the thigh bone and socket of the pelvis bone with prosthetic (or artificial) pieces made from metal, ceramic and/or plastic. The procedure involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone and implanting the prosthetic joint.
