Joint Replacement Surgery in Burr Ridge, Plainfield, & Morris

Is one of the most common and successful operations in modern orthopaedic surgery. It consists of replacing painful, arthritic, worn or diseased parts of the joint with artificial surfaces shaped in such a way as to allow joint movement.

Prognosis is good to excellent in 95% of major joint replacements (hips, knees, and shoulders). Pain relief is especially reliable. Full recovery of range of motion is not always accomplished but you will be able to play golf, walk, dance and engage in light to moderate physical activities. Expect your total joint replacement to last a decade or more.

The future is bright for those who choose to have a total joint replacement to achieve an improved quality of life through greater independence and healthier pain-free activity.

Common Symptoms:

  • Severe Pain & Muscle Weakening
  • Pain Medications No Longer Work
  • Restricted Joint Movement & Joint Stiffness
  • Meniscus tear

Common Joint Replacements:

  • Knee
  • Hip
  • Shoulder

Partial Knee Replacement

Dr. Burt performs Partial Knee Replacement with the Oxford (trademark) Knee. This is a less invasive option for appropriately selected patients with arthritis of the knee limited to one compartment.
