Hip, Knee, & Shoulder Replacement

Hip, Knee, & Shoulder Replacement

Each year, more than one million Americans undergo joint replacement (or arthroplasty) to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis, a degenerative condition in which the cartilage within a joint wears away, causing the bones to rub together. This advanced surgical procedure restores the integrity of your joints and improves their function by using an artificial joint, or prosthesis.

Most cases of osteoarthritis occur due to aging, although the condition may also be brought on prematurely by an injury to the joint. Combined with physical therapy, joint replacement surgery alleviates the pain and stiffness associated with severe wear-and-tear arthritis or trauma-induced arthritis, and allows for more complete range of motion. It also enables your body to function the way it should.

Renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Carlos J. Lavernia in Miami, Florida utilizes the most advanced surgical methods available for hip, knee, and shoulder joint replacement, including minimally invasive procedures whenever possible.

Patient Feedback

“Dr Lavernia is the best in his class, by far. When other Dr’s said it would be impossible to operate on my old man, he not only did it, but here we are over 17 years after that and he’s still going strong. Someone who could barely walk, thanks to Dr. Lavernia, he now lives his best life ever. Dr. Lavernia and his staff are very professional, courteous, empathetic and I could go on forever. If you’re looking for the best, look no further because he is it.”
