Joint Replacement Surgery Center

Dr. Teo Mendez performs shoulder, knee, and hip replacements. He may recommend a joint replacement, or arthroplasty, if you have severe end-stage osteoarthritis and/or have failed to see improvement of your symptoms with other treatment measures such as physical therapy, bracing, and oral or injectable medications.

Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the cartilage which coats the ends of bones becomes thinned, worn, and soft. When this cartilage, called articular cartilage, degenerates, it is not able to take up load or force as before. This results in a joint that is stiff, creaky, swollen, painful, and may have clicking or grinding.

Joint replacement is the definitive treatment option for pain caused by osteoarthritis.
