    Rita's Story: Two New Knees and No More Pain

Former collegiate shot put thrower, Tamie Gipe, suffered with painful hips for years. As a physical education teacher, she was frustrated when she couldn't keep up with her students or her kids at home. But after having her hips replaced using the anterior approach, she's back on the court with her students and running around with her daughters.

As your joints wear out or become injured, they can become painful and limit your ability to do everyday tasks. Joint replacement can ease your pain and give you back mobility you may have lost.

At Riverview Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we offer joint replacement surgery for those suffering from a hip, kneeshoulder, elbow, hand or ankle problem. Our expert team of orthopedic specialists helps guide you each step of the way through your joint replacement journey. We understand the anxiety you may feel when it comes to surgery, so we do our best to make the process as comfortable for you as possible.

It all starts with an informative pre-op class to help prepare you for what to expect during your surgery, recovery and rehabilitation. Together, we’ll review the details of your hospital stay—during which you’ll receive care from our knowledgeable physicians, and specially trained nurses and physical therapists. Through it all, our team works with you to meet your needs and manage your pain, while preparing you to care for your new joint after you return home or to an outpatient rehabilitation facility.

Our physicians are also trained in the latest technologies. Riverview Health is the only facility in the Midwest to offer Exactech Guided Personalized Surgery (GPS) for knee replacements. This computer technology allows surgeons to more accurately align the replacement knee, which leads to less wear and tear on the knee implant. Our surgeons also practice the anterior hip approach for hip replacements allowing for the physician to avoid cutting through muscle. If this technique is right for you, the anterior hip approach often leads to an easier recovery and a smaller scar.

Through it all, our team works with you to meet your needs and manage your pain, while preparing you to care for your new joint after you return home or to an outpatient rehabilitation facility.

Appointments with our orthopedic surgeons are available without a referral to assess whether joint replacement is right for you.
