Joint Replacement

Our orthopedic surgical team performs a number of joint replacement surgeries, including total knee, uni-compartmental knee, total hip, and total shoulder.

Mako SmartRobotics™ for Total Knee Replacement

Dosher is the first hospital in the region to perform total knee replacements utilizing the latest technology of robotic arm assisted surgery. Mako SmartRobotics™ uses 3D CT based planning software to help your surgeon create a more personalized surgical plan, which has been associated with less pain, less need for opiate analgesics, less need for inpatient physical therapy, improved knee flexion and reduction in length of hospital stay.

Total Joint Experience

Our expert doctors, nurses, and other professionals thank you for considering Dosher Memorial Hospital for your hip, knee, or shoulder replacement.

Our goal is to prepare you for this experience and help you set expectations for a speedy recovery. We strive to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We believe an educated patient will recover quicker and get back to normal life activities. So, we're now holding patient education sessions the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, 11 a.m. to noon, in the second floor conference room at the hospital. Class includes lunch and there are several reserved parking spaces for participants.

This free seminar will help patients know what to expect in several aspects of care:
