Bilateral Joint Replacement

When arthritis affects both knees or both hips to a similar degree, replacements of both joints can occasionally be done during the same operation or in two operations spaced closely together. When done at the same time, the operation takes longer and requires a longer hospital stay.

There is more stress on your body with this type of surgery and it is only offered to patients who are physically fit and in very good health. The benefit of this is an overall faster recovery since there is only one hospital stay.

Other patients may be offered a second surgery on the other joint shortly after (3-6 months) the first.

Walking Is Man's Best Medicine

Although it was many years ago, the statement by Hippocrates holds the truth to healthy lifestyles today. However many people are unable to walk or take an active role in their health due to the pain and limitations caused by Arthritis. At Concordia Joint Replacement Group, we provide options to reduce pain and improve the wellbeing of persons affected by Arthritis.

We strive for excellence in the clinical care of patients undergoing joint replacement of the hip or knee through high quality standards for patient safety, patient education, rehabilitation and surgical techniques. The team at the Concordia Joint Replacement Group and the Concordia Hospital in the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority value research and the latest strategies to achieve high levels of patient satisfaction.
