At the Center for Total Joint Replacement, we apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from joint pain or discomfort. It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. 

However, if and when a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, our team of specialists are trained to correct problems related to joint pain. Whether it’s your hip, knee, or shoulder that’s causing you pain, our top-notch team will help you get moving again so you can get back to the activities you love.

Our full-service approach, which integrates the patient’s primary care physician and surgeon with a host of clinical support staff, is designed to return our patients to maximum function as quickly and safely as possible. Our surgical team has the ability to replace all major joints including those in the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, and finger.

These surgical procedures in 3D help answer your frequently asked questions and get you familiar with specific surgical procedures before you see one of our surgeons. 


There are many factors to consider before choosing joint replacement surgery. What is your current level of joint pain? What is your response to other methods of treating your discomfort? Joint replacement surgery is a personal decision. The information here is designed to help you make an informed choice.


Saint Agnes takes a results-oriented team approach to joint replacement. Your multidisciplinary team provides exceptional skill and lots of coaching. We host regular, free seminars to provide valuable information on joint replacement and to help you understand and feel comfortable with your decision to have total joint replacement.

The Saint Agnes Center for Total Joint Replacement wants to work with you to regain independence, mobility, and freedom from joint pain.
