The SOS Joint Replacement Program is one of the nation's best, with more than 3,000 surgeries performed annually. The surgeons on the SOS joint replacement team are fellowship-trained, highly experienced and skilled in total joint replacement.
Trauma, such as fractures, or diseases like arthritis are the most common reasons for a joint replacement. During the surgery, diseased or injured joint surfaces are removed and replaced with an artificial joint, or prosthesis, generally made from metal and plastic or ceramic, materials designed to allow the artificial joint to move much like a normal joint.
Today, people have longer life expectancies and greater activity levels, and joint replacement is being performed in greater numbers on younger patients thanks to new advances in artificial joint technology.

Satisfied SOS Patients
Dr. Greenky replaced both my knees & my left hip - nothing but a fabulous result - I feel like I'm 20. My husband's visit was yesterday and he diagnosed the problem immediately, recommended treatment and wants us to follow up if he does not get relief from the pain.
