Joint Replacement

Partial and Full Joint Replacement

Do you have joint pain?

One in five people suffer from arthritis. There are over a hundred different types of arthritis, but the most common forms are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is characterized by a breakdown of cartilage that causes stiffness and pain in the affected joint. Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms include swelling and joint deformity. Arthritis can develop in the spine, shoulders, hands, wrists, hip, knees, ankles, and feet.

Dr. David Dominguez at 3D Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center, always recommends a course of conservative treatment options prior to joint replacement surgery. Weight loss and low-impact exercises are a great place for patients to start. Anti-inflammatory medications and joint injections are also recommended prior to surgery.

If you have bone-on-bone arthritis and non-surgical treatment options have not provided relief, our surgeons may recommend total joint replacement, so you can get back to doing what you love. We have a standardized pre-surgical process for all patients undergoing Total Hip or Total Knee reconstruction including general health optimization, preoperative clearance with the hospital and surgeon, and a free pre-surgical education program.

3D Sports Medicine is proud to offer Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for partial and full knee replacements. Dr. Dominguez is trained in the operation of the Mako robotic-arm assisted technology which provides his patients with a personalized surgical experience. This type of surgery is provided for partial and full knee replacements as well as hip replacements. A 3D model of your hip or knee will be used to pre-plan and assist Dr. Dominguez in performing your joint replacement surgery.

"I would like to share my story about my experience with Dr. Dominguez & the 3D Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center. Last November I had ran the Tough Mudder for the second time along with many other races. Well this time the Mudder bit me coming over an 8 ft wall. At the top of the wall as I was ready to head over, another runner had grabbed the top of my foot which led to me coming straight down with my left leg, shredding my Medial Meniscus & ACL. I was referred to Dr. Dominguez by my friend Trish Facciobene to have it looked at. Two weeks later, I was under the knife and in Surgery. I have to say, I have never been so pleased as I was with the Doc & Staff. It has been 9 weeks since surgery & I am on the mend. Not overdoing it but am back to doing light crossfit at Crossfit Outspoken and feeling great. I know that Ive got a bit to go in recovery, but rest assured, if it weren't for the 3D Sports Med crew, I don't think I would be healing this well."

Knee

The knee is the largest joint in the body. In the field of play, ACL tears, patella dislocations, tendonitis, and meniscus tear are commonplace.

Shoulder

There are a number of causes for shoulder pain. The shoulder is one of the most flexible joints and therefore is prone to injury. Shoulder pain occurs when soft tissues (Muscle, tendon, labrum & Ligaments) are injured or overused. The shoulder is prone to instability and even to dislocations which may require extensive rehabilitation or surgery. As well, years of use along with other medical conditions can cause stiffness, bursitis, rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder, or even arthritis.

Ankle

Ankle injuries like fractures and sprains are common sports related injuries. An Ankle fracture is the break of one or more of the bones in the ankle.

Ankle sprains typically occur when the foot lands in an odd position and with great force, causing stretched ligaments and sometimes tears.
