Total Joint Replacement

Ortho Rhode Island’s joint replacement program for knees, hips, and shoulders is focused on providing the best outcome for you, so you can get back to doing what you love. Since 2017, 93% of our knee replacement patients and 96% of our hip replacement patients report significant improvement in pain and function just one year after surgery.


Our team has pioneered robotic-assisted knee and hip replacement procedures in southern New England, introducing this state-of-the-art technology to Rhode Island. Robotic technology enables our surgeons to use a 3D model of the patient’s anatomy to help create a personalized surgical plan. Our surgeons follow this plan while performing joint replacements in the operating room, guiding a robotic arm designed to increase precision for a less invasive surgery.
