TOTAL JOINT
REPLACEMENT

Our joint replacement team is trained in the latest techniques and treatment options for total joint care and replacement. Although hips and knees are the most common joints replaced, we also specialize in other joint replacements, such as the shoulder. Our highly trained orthopaedic surgeons perform hundreds of total hip, knee, and shoulder replacements a year with excellent outcomes. There are many types of implants and recommendations are based on several factors including weight, age, and activity level. Your surgeon will discuss the best type of joint implant for you prior to surgery.

Most important is how a patient's activity and physical functioning improve after treatment. Our surgeons incorporate the latest technology advancements into their practice, including the use of smaller incisions and new, longer-lasting artificial components, when appropriate, making possible a faster and less painful recovery. Our on-site physical therapists, who work hand-in-hand with our physicians, are available to you to complete your recovery process. Using the best available science, our physical therapists will work diligently to get you back to enjoying the activities you love.

When other methods of treating pain and loss of motion have been exhausted, joint replacement may be the best hope for long-term improvement. Dramatic advances in procedures and devices used to repair and replace joints may now bring extreme relief to those who suffer from chronic pain.

ROBOT-ASSISTED 
KNEE REPLACEMENT

At Bluegrass Orthopaedics, our knee specialists Dr. Kevin Denehy, Dr. Greg D'Angelo, Dr. Wallace Huff, and Dr. Owen McGonigle are now performing knee replacements using the Mako robotic-arm assisted technology at the Bluegrass Specialty Surgery Center. Robotic-assisted surgery requires advanced training and certification. It provides additional precision, less soft-tissue trauma, less post-operative pain, potentially quicker recovery, better knee function, and improved patient satisfaction.

Comeback Champion
Joe Duff

Bluegrass Orthopaedics is proud to acknowledge our Comeback Champion - Mr. Joe Duff. Mr. Duff has been active his entire life, including competing in water skiing events! He is a spry 86 year old and wanted to be sure to get out on the lake this summer. He had injections in the past with some benefit, but he was determined to live an active lifestyle, and a knee replacement would be needed to ensure that.
