Joint Replacement Services

Our Approach to Joint Replacement

At Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, we know that severe joint pain can impact your ability to do the most basic tasks. Replacing the damaged joint with an artificial implant can help you feel and move better. 

If you have been told you need a hip replacement, knee replacement or joint replacement in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, ankle or foot, our experienced team is here for you. 

Our surgeons offer the latest in total joint replacement, partial joint replacement and resurfacing, including minimally invasive techniques that our surgeons helped create. We also provide revision surgery, treating many patients whose prior joint replacements have failed. 

Every patient is unique — so we customize our approach to joint replacement for each patient — which means you can recover quickly, safely and comfortably.

Joint Replacement at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush

Nationally ranked: U.S. News and World Report rated the orthopedic program at Rush University Medical Center high performing (the highest possible rating) for knee replacement and hip replacement. 

Higher volume means better outcomes: We have performed tens of thousands of joint replacements — the most in Illinois and among the most in the Midwest. This means our patients have better outcomes and fewer complications.

A team approach: Our joint replacement team includes board-certified orthopedic surgeons, specialty nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and pain management specialists — working together to provide the best possible results and experience. 

Robotic hip and knee replacement: Robotic technology assists our surgeons in sizing, placement, and positioning of your implant. Using real-time data, our team can make adjustments during your surgery which means your implant is inserted more accurately.
