Hip & Knee Care

Patient Experience

After hip replacement, Beth Pietro had one therapy she couldn’t get anywhere else: granddaughter therapy.

As two of the largest joints in the body, the hips and knees support us in almost everything we do. Because of their heavy use, they are subject to wear and tear and prone to injury.

Comprehensive Care for Hips & Knees

The experienced orthopedic specialists at Cape Cod Healthcare’s Total Joint Center offer a full range of services for a variety of hip and knee conditions, including:

Treatments for Hip & Knee Conditions

Our orthopedic specialists treat hip and knee pain using a variety of techniques, beginning with the most conservative. After careful diagnosis, they’ll work with you to develop a customized care map designed to achieve the best possible outcome for your specific condition.

Treatments may include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Platelet rich plasma (PRP)
  • Surgery
  • Steroid injections
  • Hyaluronic acid injections

Minimally Invasive Surgery

When other methods no longer work to relieve your joint pain, it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery. The board-certified orthopedic surgeons at CCHC are specially trained in the latest minimally invasive surgical procedures using smaller incisions for faster recovery times and less pain.

  • Hip and knee arthroscopy
  • Hip replacement surgery – total and mini, using muscle-sparing techniques
  • Knee replacement surgery – total and partial, using muscle-sparing techniques
  • Knee joint resurfacing

Direct Anterior Approach to Hip Replacement Surgery

This innovative procedure allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front instead of the side or the back, allowing the hip to be replaced without detaching muscle from the pelvis or femur during surgery.
