Joint replacements are becoming more and more common every year. More than a half million people each year in the United States undergo joint replacement procedures. Most of these cases are hip or knee replacements.

At the Carondelet Center for Joint Replacement at St. Joseph’s Hospital, our orthopedic surgeons will ONLY consider surgery if all other treatment options were unsuccessful in providing you relief from pain or disability.
