Orthopedic Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery at McLaren Greater Lansing

McLaren Greater Lansing has has a full range of non-surgical and surgical orthopedic services to help you get back out there. From diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation, we can help alleviate a wide range of orthopedic conditions including:

Total Hip Replacement (THR) and Total Hip Arthroplasty

Hip joint replacement is a surgical procedure to replace the hip joint. The new joint is artificial and has two parts. The first part is the hip’s socket, called the acetabulum. This is a cup-shaped bone in the pelvis. The second part is the “ball” or head of the femur, also called the thighbone.

These artificial parts together are called a prosthesis. The artificial socket is made of high-density plastic. The artificial ball, which is attached to a stem is usually made of a strong, stainless metal. The goal of the surgery is to relieve pain and improve mobility and function in the hip joint.

Partial and Total Knee Joint Replacement

Knee joint replacement is surgery to replace a damaged or diseased knee with an artificial joint, or prosthesis. The goal is to improve the main function of the knee joint and reduce pain. Learn more about Mako Total Knee Replacement.
