Joint Replacement Center
Feel peace of mind when you choose a Joint Replacement Center known for high-quality care. Benefit from specialty services from a multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons, health coaches, and a joint navigator.
Joint Replacement Surgery
Your surgeon will use the latest technology and least invasive option that will work best for you. This means you'll have smaller incisions to help you heal faster and have less pain. Choose OMC for:
- Hip replacement, to replace the hip joint with an artificial joint
- Knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, to replace damaged parts of the knee with an artificial (man-made) joint
The type of artificial hip or knee that will work best for you depends on your age, bone density, joint shape, and other factors. Watch patient education videos about different types of hip and knee replacement procedures.
Do I Need a Referral?
You'll need a referral from your primary care provider to see an OMC orthopedic surgeon. Your primary care physician will check your condition, may do imaging tests, and help you decide if surgery or another treatment is best for you.
Emergency Room Referral
If you get treatment for an orthopedic injury in the emergency room, your provider will give you a referral to an orthopedic surgeon if needed.

Rely on your care team to listen and provide education and guidance before and after your joint replacement surgery.
