Imagine life without pain.

Knee, hip, and shoulder pain can be debilitating or can alter one’s quality of life. Our compassionate team of health professionals can offer several options for people to consider when seeking relief and our program is designed to help get you on your way to an active lifestyle.

When you choose Los Alamitos Medical Center, you benefit from:
  • Advanced, comprehensive orthopedics care – from diagnosis to outcome
  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical treatment options
  • Our Orthopedic Destination Center and team of experienced and skilled surgeons with caring and specially-trained nurses, therapists, and technicians focused on total knee and hip replacements
  • Comprehensive, customized medical treatment plans for all kinds of sports-related injuries
The orthopedic surgeons have tools and resources to fix joint ailments and our compassionate caregivers help you on the road to recovery. Some patients may need minor surgery to repair a damaged joint while others may need complete joint replacements. Your care and recovery plan will be customized just for you.

Possible reasons for joint replacement may include:
  • Pain that has failed to respond to conservative therapy (medications, steroid injections, physical therapy, lifestyle and activity adjustments, rest).
  • Osteoarthritis or arthritis confirmed by X-ray
  • Inability to work, sleep, or move because of pain
  • Loose prosthesis
  • Joint fractures, tumors, or deformities
