Hip and Knee

The physicians at First State Orthopaedics have extensive experience and knowledge in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of all conditions of the hip and knee, including fracture and trauma care, degenerative diseases such as arthritis, and congenital deformities.

Our surgeons specialize in replacement of arthritic joints. From preoperative education, through surgery, recovery, and rehabilitation, everything is designed for the special needs of our patients.

The goal of the First State Orthopaedics hip and knee team is to provide each individual with the highest quality care in a healing environment. Whatever the condition, it is our desire to provide every patient with the best long-term outcome possible. Working together, our team can help improve mobility and the quality of life of our patients.
