Joint Replacement Procedures

OPA is Alaska’s leader in joint replacement and revisions. Our specialists perform hundreds of hip, knee and shoulder replacements every year and several subspecialists can also replace finger joints, ankles and elbows. OPA leads the way in emerging surgical techniques that studies have shown to help patients recover faster with longer-lasting results.

The OPA-Alpine-Alpenglow Advantage

OPA also offers coordinated care — diagnosis and pre-op visits, surgery, recovery, rehabilitation — all in one place. After surgery at in the orthopedic-focused Alpine Surgery Center, patients are wheeled down the hall to Alpenglow recovery facility. There, patients recoup in comfort and immediately begin their rehabilitation work with an OPA physical therapist (or occupational therapist in the case of a shoulder replacement). This system is not only convenient, it speeds and enhances surgical recovery and is more cost-effective than recovery in a hospital.

Common Joint-Replacement Procedures

More than one million Americans undergo hip- or knee-replacement surgery each year. Shoulder and other replacement and revision procedures have also become common. OPA features nine surgeons who specialize in joint-replacement surgeries. Sample procedures include:

Total Hip Replacement

OPA surgeons offer traditional, anterior and anterolateral approaches. New techniques now allow patients to start walking the very day of their surgery.

Total Knee Replacement

New techniques now allow patients to start walking the very day of their surgery.

Total Shoulder Replacement

OPA surgeons offer traditional and anterior approaches.

Total Ankle Replacement

OPA is home to one of very few surgeons with experience in total ankle arthroplasty.

Total Elbow Replacement

Fellowship-trained arm/elbow specialists at OPA perform many of these procedures every year.
