The joint refers to the physical point of connection between two bones. Joints also contain a variety of connective tissue that connect bones, muscles and cartilage. When cartilage or padding in the joint wears out, it causes arthritis, which leads to pain and stiffness. Unfortunately, arthritis affects numerous people yearly, requiring treatment, and even joint replacement surgery. When conservative treatments fail, Dr. Kareem Sobky and Dr. Mark Tuttle offer the most advanced techniques for replacement surgery of arthritic joints.

Leaders in Joint Replacement Surgery

Dr. Kareem Sobky and Dr. Mark Tuttle, two physicians at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center, specialize in active lifestyle orthopedics. From total joint replacements to sports injuries requiring minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, their greatest passion is to help people retain their active Colorado lifestyles. Their patient-centered approach ensures people feel truly cared for. Both Dr. Sobky and Dr. Tuttle provide highly personalized care, sitting down with every person to determine the best treatment for his or her specific case. Whenever possible, both Dr. Sobky and Dr. Tuttle employ the latest state-of-the-art surgical techniques in order for their patients to experience the most accelerated recovery possible.

“We specialize in rapid or accelerated recovery joint replacement,” said Dr. Sobky.“For hip replacement, we utilize the muscle sparing direct anterior hip replacement approach. This allows for much less surgical trauma and a very efficient surgery, with a quicker recovery and lower complication rate. Knee replacement surgery utilizes minimally invasive techniques and computer assisted navigation. In many patients, we utilize cement-free knee replacements. In addition, many patients are candidates for partial replacement, which allows for a more active/normal feeling knee and a quicker recovery. Shoulder and reverse shoulder replacement help relieve pain and restore significant motion, strength and functional use.”
