Total Hip Replacement Surgery – is a surgery in which the diseased ball and socket of the hip joint are completely removed and replaced with artificial materials

Hip Resurfacing Surgery – In The femur cap of the hip resurfacing devices does not require the femur bone be cut off; instead the top of the femoral head is shaped to closely fit the underside of the cap. Both hip resurfacing and hip replacement require that a cup is placed in the acetabulum of the hip socket.

Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement Surgery- Total knee replacement is a type of surgery to replace a damaged knee joint. A minimally invasive surgery uses a smaller incision than a traditional total knee replacement. This type of surgery typically requires special instruments so that the surgery team can see and do the procedure through the smaller incision.

Bilateral Knee replacement – This is a surgery whereby both knees are replaced at the same time, the surgery is known as a simultaneous bilateral knee replacement. When each knee is replaced at a different time, it is called a staged bilateral knee replacement.
