Outpatient partial and total joint replacements are now available for hips and knees. Our surgeons perform more partial and total knee and hip replacements than all other orthopaedic surgeons in the state combined.
Our patients are primarily from Mississippi, but patients from all over the Southeast, including Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Louisiana also select our doctors. Some of our patients are referred by family or friends and others by their primary care physicians or specialists.
In recent years, advanced techniques and technologies have revolutionized knee and hip replacements allowing more arthritis patients to consider treatments at an earlier time. In many cases, when traditional treatments are not effective, hip and/or knee replacement surgery may be appropriate in order to stop pain, increase mobility, and allow a more normal life.

Our mission is to abide by the Hippocratic Oath and provide our patients with the highest service quality in accordance with the highest medical and ethical standards for the profession. Our mission is also to attempt the alleviation of pain and suffering for patients afflicted with arthritis and similar joint diseases utilizing and developing new technologies to improve the care of patients with those diseases.
Patient education is crucial in our practice, and we are committed to promoting and supporting our patients with all available information about treatment options and to answer questions about medical risks and facts for informed decision-making about their treatment. We respect patients’ rights to privacy and any requests regarding their healthcare.

Great advancements have been made in recent years in hip replacement surgery. Perhaps the greatest breakthroughs have been regarding advanced implant materials and much better hip surface bearings. Better hip surface bearings greatly reduce wear which significantly increases the life and longevity of the hip replacement. According to laboratory data, scientists now feel that hip replacements today may last a lifetime.
Minimally invasive and muscle sparing operative techniques, as well as, peri-operative multimodal pain management regimens give our patients minimal pain after surgery and allow for an easier and faster recovery. In addition to faster recovery, there may be potential benefits such as less bleeding and smaller scars for improved cosmetics.
We offer the latest and best approaches in hip replacement combining the precision and accuracy of computer-assisted technology with our surgical skills. We offer computer navigated “mini-incision posterior” hip replacement and anterior hip replacement. With both of these approaches to hip replacement, no muscle is cut, no post operative hip precautions, and patients are mobile the day of surgery. Both approaches also help restore equal leg lengths, normal anatomical position of the new implants, and are equal in their reduced recovery time.
Our surgeons routinely use implants provided by DePuy Orthopaedics, a Johnson & Johnson Company.

Knee replacement surgery, in recent years, has seen advancements in implant materials, rotating knee bearings, gender specific knee designs, computer-assisted surgery (CAS), multimodal peri-operative pain control, minimally invasive muscle sparing surgery and partial knee replacements.
Minimally invasive and muscle sparing operative techniques as well as peri-operative pain management regimens give our patients minimal postoperative pain and allow for an easier and faster recovery. In addition to faster recovery, there may be potential benefits such as less bleeding and smaller scars for improved cosmetics. Computer-assisted placement of the prosthesis offers visual mapping to aid decision-making before and throughout the knee replacement operation through a combination of precision computer technology with our surgical skills.
We offer Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty (UKA) or partial knee replacements to patients who have degenerative arthritis isolated to one area of the knee. This procedure preserves two-thirds of the patient’s natural, healthy knee tissue. The advantages of the UKA are that it offers hope for longer relief, shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, easier rehabilitation, less scarring and a more natural feeling knee during activities.
Our surgeons routinely use implants provided by DePuy Orthopedics – specifically the Sigma Rotating Platform total knee prosthesis. It is designed to bend and rotate, move back and forth, flex and extend, helping to accommodate more normal movements while significantly minimizing implant wear (compared to traditional knee replacements). It is also designed for men and women. Studies have shown that more than 97% of these implants are still in use after 20 years. Learn more at Sigma High Performance.
