We use advanced partial knee replacement techniques such as the Oxford Unicompartmental Knee. Total knee or total hip replacements are also treatment options.
Our joint specialists practice 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.
