Joint Replacement


Joint Replacement Surgery in wichita

Meet our orthopedic surgeons and learn about joint replacement surgery.

Joint replacement surgery (aka replacement arthroplasty) is an orthopedic procedure where the ends of bones and dysfunctional joint surface are replaced with an implant. Typically, a procedure like this is only performed when nonsurgical joint pain treatment options have proven to be ineffective.

The goal of joint replacement surgery is two-fold. First, to relieve your pain and mobility, and second, to improve your overall quality of life. However, keep in mind, this is an elective surgery and not for everyone. For those that are an ideal candidate for joint replacement surgery, just know that you’re in the best of hands with our orthopedic doctors at Mid-America Orthopedics. With advanced technology, our surgeons utilize the most cutting-edge techniques and implants available.

One such technique is robotic surgery, which can be used for arthroscopic knee surgery, joint repair, and hip and knee replacements among others. We have two surgeons that specialize in robotic surgery. Tarun Bhargava, MD and Benjamin Young, MD have years of experience performing successful robotic surgeries. Robotic joint replacement surgery is minimally invasive and can help shorten recovery time, limit scarring and reduce pain and discomfort. It’s a completely personalized surgical plan and just one of the many advanced orthopedic treatments we offer at Mid-America Orthopedics.

At Mid-America Orthopedics, we offer a complete system of joint replacement surgeries including: knee, hip, shoulder, and ankle. During your initial consultation with us, one of our orthopedic doctors will fully evaluate you, your condition, and what your physical goals are moving forward. Once we know the full extent of your pain and disability, we can then determine what the best course of action is. We never jump straight to surgery, if we don’t have to. However, in rare cases, that is the best avenue to care to relieve your pain and regain your mobility.

If you’ve been searching for experienced orthopedic doctors near you to find relief for pain or mobility issues, then it’s time you paid a visit to the experts at Mid-America Orthopedics.
