Comprehensive Knee, Hip and Shoulder Joint Replacement 

Frisbie Memorial Hospital’s Total Joint Replacement Center offers total joint replacement of the shoulder, hip (including the minimally-invasive direct anterior approach) and knee (including the ConforMIS custom fit total knee implant).

Joint replacement solutions using the latest technology

Our “First Steps” program offers a comprehensive, personalized approach to joint replacement. It begins with your one-on-one consultation with the doctor and his staff, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the procedure. They’ll guide you through the process, and help you become completely comfortable with the procedure, the process, and your recovery.

This one-on-one approach allows you to come to the hospital on the morning of the surgery fully understanding your role in recovery. And starting soon after surgery, you’ll be up and walking with the help of your dedicated team.

Solutions using the latest technology

No two joints are the same. That’s why we approach each and every joint replacement from a fresh perspective. For certain knee replacements, the implant is built to precisely match the unique size and shape of your knee.

ConforMIS knee replacements using 3D printing technology, we’re able to create a customized implant as well as one-use surgical instrumentation. The process starts with a scan of the patient’s hip, affected knee, and ankle to ensure that the leg is aligned correctly before the implant is designed. 
Then, the two-dimensional CT scan of the patient’s knee is converted into a 3-D model that maps the surface of the joint and clearly defines the area of disease in the joint. 
The software then designs each customized component of the implant as well as all the instrumentation from the 3D model.
