It’s hard to be optimistic about life when you’re in constant pain. Even the slightest bit of activity can put you on the sidelines when you have joint problems. Whether you want to get out and walk for your favorite cause or just want to be able to go about your daily activities without pain, the Ochsner Orthopedic team is here to help you make it happen. One of the best joint replacement programs in the nation is right in your own backyard:

  • Our program is nationally-recognized as High Performing for Knee Replacement and Orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report in 2018-2019.
  • Ochsner received the Healthgrades Orthopedic Surgery Excellence Award™ in 2018. We also were recognized as one of Healthgrades America's 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement™ and received five stars for total knee replacement, total hip replacement and hip fracture treatment in 2018.

At Ochsner, you’ll be cared for by the most experienced teams of orthopedists, anesthesiologists, advanced practice providers, physical and occupational therapists and social workers in the region. We strive to offer our patients better experiences, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recoveries. Our ultimate goal is to help you be able to go about your everyday life with a smile on your face.

Our team takes the time to listen to your concerns, and will help you choose the care approach that’s right for you. Treatment options include minimally invasive joint resurfacing, partial joint replacement and robotically assisted joint replacement surgery using the Mako system. Our team of surgeons is among the most qualified in the region performing minimally invasive robotically assisted MAKO surgeries. These procedures enable patients to have faster healing and less pain. Same-day total joint replacement surgeries are performed at Ochsner.
