Every activity that you do involves using your joints in one way or another. Simple movements such as walking, bending or combing your hair require the use of your hip, knee or shoulder joints. These joints allow your body to move in certain ways and prohibit movements in other ways.
Some joints, like knees, work like a hinge, allowing movement only in one specific direction. Socket joints, like the shoulder and hip, permit movement in several directions.
Joints serve us very well but can easily become damaged, inflamed and painful.
Our board certified surgeons at Flathead Orthopedics excel in the following joint replacements:
- Total hip replacements
- Posterior approach or anterior approach
- Total knee replacements
- Partial knee replacements
- Total shoulder replacements
- Reverse shoulder replacements
- Total joint revisions
Our goal for our patients at Flathead Orthopedics is to determine the best course of treatment to relieve your joint pain and get you back to the activities you love.
