The Division of Adult
Reconstruction at The University of Virginia is committed to the
evaluation and treatment of patients in the Commonwealth and beyond who
are suffering from arthritic conditions of the hip and knee. We provide
expert care for those patients in need of total hip or knee
replacement, secondary to arthritis, osteonecrosis, post-traumatic
conditions and previous joint replacement difficulties. We perform over
1000 replacements annually, including the most complex cases referred
in from around the state and region. Unique services include minimally
invasive surgery, computer assisted techniques, and joint preservation
surgery for the hip and knee. The Division of Adult
Reconstruction is dedicated to outstanding patient care, the education
of future orthopaedic surgeons, and to the dissemination of new
knowledge and techniques pertaining to the treatment of arthritis.
Current research endeavors include basic scientific inquiry into novel
treatment for osteonecrosis, innovative revision surgical techniques,
and rapid recovery following joint replacement surgery.
Joint replacement is one of the most successful surgical procedures
performed in this country as well as around the world. If you think you
may be in need of our services, please contact us - you won't be
