Total joint replacement is major inpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Walker will remove the damaged natural joint cartilage and replace it with a prosthesis. The materials used in joint replacements vary, are recommended according to each individual’s needs and are designed so that the affected joint moves as normally as possible. Dr. Walker also performs these surgeries in hospital operating rooms, using advanced technology for improved accuracy.

Minimize hospital stays & shorten recovery with partial knee replacement

When appropriate, Dr. Walker also performs partial, or “unicondylar,” knee replacement, replacing only the damaged portion of the joint. This lets selected, qualified patients shorten or avoid hospital stays and eases recoveries. Dr. Walker uses the most advanced technology to reduce postoperative discomfort, scarring and recovery time. He has been trained in the robotic arm-assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure. This innovative treatment allows Dr. Walker to precisely position the implant and preserve healthy cartilage, ligaments and bone, resulting in more natural knee movement following surgery.

Ease your discomfort after joint replacement

Dr. Walker does everything possible to keep you comfortable after surgery, including pain medication and physical therapy to control pain after a hip, shoulder or knee replacement. Joint replacement patients may also receive a nerve block to dramatically reduce their pain after the procedure. Dr. Walker performs minimally invasive, muscle sparing surgery including the anterior hip replacement and uses a Rapid Recovery program. This combined treatment regimen facilitates an earlier hospital discharge, earlier ability to walk without a walker or cane, and better pain relief.

Personalized follow-up care for a smoother recovery

Patients often begin walking the day of surgery, usually starting with a walker aid. Patients may experience temporary pain in the replacement joint, but this generally improves within a few weeks.

Focused physical therapy for a faster recovery

One of Dr. Walker’s associated physical therapists will design a treatment plan aimed at improving your strength, flexibility and endurance, while speeding your recovery.
