Keeping You Strong At Every Stage Of Life.

Quick Facts:

Joint Resurfacing helps restore comfort and function to joints damaged by arthritis or other degenerative disorders. Effectively, Joint Resurfacing is an alternative to traditional total joint replacement procedures.

  • Replaces only the damaged portions of the joint.
  • Preserves and retains healthy bone and tissue.
  • Potentially better long term functionality.
  • Minimal limitations in returning to physical activity.
  • More natural feeling than a total joint replacement
  • Personalized treatment plan

There are different forms of joint resurfacing, and these may be combined with each other as well as some cartilage/ligament restoration techniques.

  • Inlay resurfacing is very much like replacing damaged tiles on a tile floor. Rather than ripping out the whole floor to repair a broken or damaged tile (the cartilage) the local area can be resurfaced with an implant specifically contoured to that region of the joint.
  • Onlay implants cover the ends of the damaged joint, allowing a normal angle and position to be reestablished while providing a new, smooth surface. These are typically used when the localized joint damage is extensive or “bone on bone”.

Are You A Candidate?

Successful candidates for joint resurfacing tend to have healthy remaining parts of their joints. Dr. Davidson will conduct an individual assessment to determine whether you are a candidate for joint resurfacing–evaluating x-rays, scans, prior operative information, and conducting a physical exam. Treatment at Davidson Orthopedics is always customized to the individual, accounting for their unique situation. After gathering comprehensive information, together with Dr. Davidson you will develop and implement an optimal individual treatment plan.
