Joint Replacement Specialists in Southwest Louisiana


Arthritis and other joint problems can be extremely painful and can eventually lead to immobility. Choosing to replace a diseased joint is no small decision, however, it may have a powerful impact on your day-to-day life and ability to participate in the activities you love. Whether you are experiencing chronic joint pain in the hip, knee, shoulder, ankle, hand, wrist, or elbow or have undergone a joint replacement procedure in the past that was unsuccessful, Center for Orthopaedics can help you get back to the active and pain-free lifestyle you’ve been missing. Center for Orthopaedics is home to some of the top joint replacement physicians in the field – including total knee replacement surgery and total hip replacement surgery specialists – who offer care and expertise based on years of experience and research.

Joint Conditions We Treat

At Center for Orthopaedics, our experienced physicians will spend time speaking with you about your condition and evaluating your personal needs before tailoring your treatment plan. We recommend nonsurgical joint treatments whenever possible before recommending surgical interventions. Most commonly, joint replacement surgery is recommended to treat the following arthritic conditions:

  • Hip arthritis
  • Knee arthritis
  • Elbow arthritis
  • Shoulder arthritis
  • Ankle arthritis
  • Hand and wrist arthritis

In addition, a secondary joint replacement surgery, also known as joint revision surgery, is rarely, but sometimes necessary, when a primary joint replacement surgery fails. This is often the result of the implanted joint becoming:

  • Infected
  • Dislocated
  • Cracked or damaged
  • Loose over time
  • Worn over time
