Multiple Joint Replacement

Orthopedic Services at Glendale Adventist Medical Center offers multiple total joint replacement surgery for people who require replacement of both knee and/or hip joints. The advantages of this option are many, including:

  • Preparation for and recovery from only one surgery instead of two, resulting in a typically lower overall complication rate.
  • A shorter hospital stay and lower total cost than if replacements are performed separately.

Candidates for Multiple Joint Replacement

The ideal candidate for multiple joint replacement should meet the following criteria:

  • Good physical condition.
  • No cardiac, pulmonary or vascular diseases.
  • Severe pain in both joints that interferes with the activities of daily living.
  • Signs of joint damage on x-rays of both joints.

For a referral to a GAMC orthopedic physician who can help determine if multiple joint replacement is right for you, call (818) 409-8100.
