Joint Replacement (Hip and Knee)

Treatment for joint pain may include activity modification, weight loss, strength training, oral anti-inflammatory medications, or cortisone injections. However, joint replacement surgery may also be considered for more severe osteoarthritis or joint deterioration.

POA’s world-class surgical staff performs joint replacement, including hip replacement and knee replacement surgery, at Valley Medical Center, which is located next to our Renton clinic. The Joint Center at Valley Medical Center is a recognized leader in developing and implementing top techniques and technology for joint replacement. Take a look at this graph outlining the number of joint replacements we’ve performed since 2002.

As the first dedicated joint replacement center in the greater Seattle area, the Joint Center has received numerous awards including a #1 ranking in Washington state for joint replacement surgery. Through the use of pre- and post-operative education, standardized treatment protocols, multi-modal pain management, and specialized nursing care, The Joint Center provides Renton, Covington, and greater Seattle with a comprehensive, patient and family focused experience.
