Joint Replacement

Don’t let hip and knee pain slow you down. With Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital, our team specializes in bone, joint, spine and muscle care. Our orthopedic surgeons and team deliver high-quality care from treatment through rehabilitation.

For every joint surgery, we integrate the patient’s primary care physician and surgeon with a highly skilled team of clinical support staff designed to prepare patients mentally and physically for their procedure and to return them to maximum function as quickly and safely as possible.

Last year, more than 570 joint replacement procedures were completed at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital.
