Joint Replacement / Reconstruction

Orthopaedic Institute of Western Kentucky | Hip Replacement | Joint Replacement
OIWK | Total Joint Center | Joint Replacement

The Orthopaedic Institute of Western Kentucky (OIWK) Total Joint Center is the place to go for joint replacement and reconstruction. You’ll find relief for painful stiffness, swelling, or any other discomfort that impacts your joints.

Joint pain affects more than a million people nationwide per year, and replacements and reconstructions are often the most effective methods for addressing the issue. Our doctors will perform these surgeries or repair your existing joint replacements and reconstructions, even if the original procedures were performed outside the OIWK network. 

We have also incorporated the latest technology into our procedures and regularly perform computer-navigated and image-guided hip and knee replacements. Additionally, 3D printing has helped our surgeons address the most complex hip, knee, and shoulder cases. 

Joint Replacement

OIWK physicians maintain the highest levels of education, as well. They are some of the few medical providers in the region who are fellowship-trained in complex hip and knee problems. They also pursue unique and specific areas of study and stay up to date on the latest technology and research. That’s why the level of care you receive at the Total Joint Center will rival any found in a larger market.

Why Our Patients Choose Us

I have been coming to The Orthopaedic Institute of Western Kentucky in Paducah since 2018. I’ve had three surgeries by different providers there as a result of injuries and health issues. I have never had a bad experience with anyone and that includes all of the clerical staff to radiology, nurses, PA’s to the surgeons. I had another surgery outside of OIWK that I now wish I had done there. They care about you and treat you like family! Highly recommend this facility!
