Total hip replacement and metal- on-metal hip resurfacing are common hip replacement options offered at the Bone & Joint Institute at Canyon Vista.
Knees. Knee replacement surgery can help sufferers of severe pain and restore function to knees damaged by disease or injury. The types of surgery include total knee replacement and partial knee replacement.
