Total Joint Replacement
The Center is a leader in advanced surgical technologies and the only hospital in the state of Utah to offer Mako® hip arthroplasty and Mako® partial knee resurfacing.
MPMC offers patients with severe osteoarthritis of the hips a superior alternative to traditional hip replacement. Prior to the procedure, the surgeon orders a CT scan, which is used to create a 3-D model of the hips. On the day of the procedure, the surgeon uses the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System and the 3-D model to optimally place a patient-specific hip implant. Most patients experience less pain, smaller incisions, and a quicker recovery. Many patients are able to walk the same day.
Individuals with early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis in one or two of the knee’s three compartments may be candidates for the partial knee resurfacing procedure. Prior to the procedure, the surgeon orders a CT scan, which is used to create a patient-specific implant. During the surgery, degenerative bone tissue is removed and the patient-specific implant is optimally placed to ensure maximum comfort and life. Most patients experience less pain, smaller incisions, and a quicker recovery. Many patients are able to walk the same day.
The physicians and orthopedic surgeons at Mountain Point Medical Center treat virtually any disease or injury that an athlete might encounter: torn ligaments in the ankle, shoulder instability, knee wear-and-tear, and much more.
