  • I'm scared about the surgery itself.

    Our physicians have collectively performed thousands of joint replacement procedures, always with the goal of returning you back to the things joint pain was keeping you from. It’s a common, safe procedure that has an excellent safety record.

    Our partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine provides our patients the most innovative treatments with the latest technology, ensuring individualized and comprehensive care.

  • I'm afraid that my joint replacement won't make a difference or last.

    90% of patients encounter no major problems 20 years post-surgery. You can expect an improved quality of life, less pain, improved motion and much more.

    Our team carefully selects replacement implants based on your needs and the implant’s track record of safety and effectiveness.

  • I'm concerned about the impact joint replacement will have on my work and career.

    The longer you wait to get a joint replacement, the more time at work you’re likely to miss.

    Taking action right away helps reduce pain and discomfort, which often rejuvenates you, makes for more enjoyable days and helps you work better and longer.

  • I'm concerned about rehabilitation and my ability to recover.

    Our focus is a seamless patient-centered model of care. We provide you with support every step of the way, from pre-operation planning to surgery to rehab.
