Treatment Options

Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Services at Baylor Scott & White – Plano offers a full range of minimally invasive total and partial joint replacement surgeries. These procedures replace or repair damaged joints to restore normal motion and help you return to a pain-free lifestyle.

Our award-winning team provides the following advanced services to help treat joint pain:

  • Minimally invasive hip replacement: Performed through one or two small incisions, this procedure typically results in less pain and faster recovery than traditional hip replacement.
  • Anterior supine total hip replacement: Performed through the front of the hip, this approach preserves more muscles and tissues, resulting in less pain and shorter recovery times.
  • Partial hip replacement/hip resurfacing: Rather than replacing the hip joint, the procedure reshapes and caps the hip ball with a metal prosthesis and fits the hip socket with a metal prosthesis.
  • Minimally invasive total knee replacement: Performed through small incisions, this approach leads to easier and faster recovery times, less pain and shorter hospital stays than traditional knee replacement.
  • Partial knee replacement: This procedure removes only the most damaged areas of cartilage and replaces these surfaces. Recovery time is faster than a total joint replacement.
  • Arthroscopy: Performed through a small incision with a scope, this procedure helps your orthopedic surgeon examine and possibly treat joint damage in the knees and shoulders.
  • Fracture care

While hip and knee joints are the most commonly replaced joints, joint replacement surgery can also be performed on the shoulders, ankles, feet, elbows, and fingers.

In some cases, the expertise of our sports medicine team may be required. In other cases, general orthopedic surgeons on our medical staff or foot and ankle specialists may be consulted. When you choose the Total Joint Replacement Center at Baylor Scott & White – Plano, all of your orthopedic needs are addressed under one roof.
