As the premier orthopedic and neurosurgical providers for Portland, Vancouver, Lake Oswego, and the surrounding areas for over 40 years, our fellowship-trained and board-certified joint replacement and revision doctors at Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery are dedicated to delivering exceptional joint care.
The body's joints are constantly put under stress from different activities and the numerous actions performed each day. This stress causes the bones, cartilage, and tendons to wear down or deteriorate over time, resulting in severe pain. Patients who are experiencing joint pain should consult with an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in joint replacement as they have the knowledge and experience to provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Depending on the particular patient, a joint replacement surgery may be recommended. A total joint replacement surgery involves the removal of a damaged or arthritic joint and replacing it with an artificial joint. In helping to relieve pain, this surgery also provides patients with increased mobility and an improved lifestyle. Some patients may undergo a joint revision surgery, which is when a joint surgeon replaces an older prosthesis with a new one due to malfunctioning or reaching the end of its lifespan.
When Is It Time to Consult a Joint Replacement or Revision Doctor?
Being able to communicate any of the symptoms you are experiencing will allow you to provide helpful information to your joint replacement and revision doctor. It can reveal to your doctor how severe your injury is or what condition you have. It is important to schedule an appointment with a joint replacement doctor near you if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Aching pain or soreness that does not go away
- Current artificial joint feels unstable or loose
- Experiencing pain when resting
- Having to limp due to pain
- Inability to walk due to severe pain
- Joint feels week or gives out when attempting to use it
- Swelling around the joint
- Throbbing pain that keeps you up at night
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it could mean that you have one of the following injuries or conditions, which can be treated by our joint replacement specialists:
- Deterioration of the cartilage around the joint
- Failure of current artificial joint
- Joint deformity
Our specialists understand that joint pain can have an impact on your lifestyle and keep you from living the life you love. To discuss your options, schedule a consultation with one of our joint replacement doctors by calling 1-800-REBOUND or requesting an appointment online.

Our joint replacement surgeons will always exhaust all conservative treatments before suggesting surgery; however, there are some situations in which joint replacement or revision surgery is the best option to help eliminate pain and restore proper function. If surgery is recommended, our joint surgeons have vast experience in performing many surgical procedures, including total hip replacement, total hip resurfacing, knee replacement, MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing, direct anterior approach to hip replacement, total shoulder replacement, and reverse shoulder replacement.
Our surgeons are dedicated to staying on the forefront of the latest surgical advancements and are continually learning new state-of-the-art techniques. We were the first orthopedic practice in the area to perform the MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing, which is an alternative to a total joint replacement that utilizes robotic technology. Additionally, we have one of the most experienced total hip resurfacing surgeons in the country and are the only group in southwest Washington to offer the direct anterior approach to hip replacement.
To help facilitate a full and rapid recovery, our joint replacement surgeons take a team approach when it comes to patient-centered care, and they work in conjunction with our physical therapists and athletic trainers, who offer comprehensive physical therapy services. Our ultimate goal is to provide an effective rehabilitation plan that is focused on your individual needs to help you resume a pain-free lifestyle.
