• Total joint service

    Joint health becomes more important because of the wear and tear experienced by joints as part of the natural aging process.  UK Orthopaedic Surgery offers a variety of comprehensive operative and nonoperative services to treat joint disorders and injuries. The Center for Cartilage Repair and Restoration offers cartilage repair and replacement techniques that can improve your mobility and quality of life while prolonging the need for a partial or total joint replacement.

  • We offer an advanced joint replacement and reconstruction program for both the knees and the hips. We use advanced partial knee replacement techniques such as the Oxford Unicompartmental Knee. Total knee or total hip replacements are also treatment options.

    Our Total Joint Service practices at UK Good Samaritan Hospital. UK Good Samaritan Hospital has long been a leader in joint replacement and our program is the second-largest practice in Kentucky.
