Total Hip / Knee Replacement
For patients with arthritis of the hip or knee, a total joint replacement may help significantly decrease your pain and improve your function. There are a number of resources available to help guide you when making a decision about getting your hip or knee replaced. Dr. McCormack is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) and a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS). These groups are excellent resources for quality information about hip and knee replacement.
