Total Joint Replacement Austin
About Total Joint Replacement
Total joint replacement is a commonly performed surgery at our Austin practice and throughout the entire country. Hip and knee replacements are performed most frequently; the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons estimates more than 400,000 are done each year. At OSA, joint replacement is possible for virtually every joint, including the ankle, foot, shoulder, elbow, and finger.
At OSA, our patients benefit from artificial implants of the most surpassing quality, many of which can last up to twenty years with proper care. And a number of Dr. Heinrich’s and Dr. Dodgin's patients can walk or apply pressure to their new joints on the day of surgery! In adult patients, replacement joints typically last a minimum of ten years. Naturally, younger individuals may need an additional replacement over time, or as their body develops.
