You can be free of pain and enjoy all the activities of life—from walking to gardening to sports. UOA has the solution for painful joints due to arthritis or injury.

Joint replacement is a surgery where an arthritic joint is replaced with a new one and is one of the fastest-growing procedures in medicine. In fact, more than one million Americans have a hip or knee replaced each year. At University Orthopaedic Associates, we have a team of award winning joint replacement surgeons who are at the forefront of the latest procedures offering total joint replacements, partial joint replacements and minimally invasive techniques. For over 40 years, our surgeons have performed over 20,000 joint replacements.

  • Over the last 40 years, our surgeons have performed over 20,000 joint replacements.

UOA is at the forefront of the latest procedures in joint replacement. We were the first in New Jersey perform the outpatient (same-day) minimally invasive anterior hip replacement. Our expertise also allows you a variety of solutions to suit your needs–including total joint replacements, partial joint replacements, minimally invasive techniques, and a new hip replacement surgical technique that conceals the scar along the bikini line.

While joint replacement has long been known among the elderly population, about half of total joint replacements are now patients under the age of 64.  Joint replacement is no longer a “last resort” procedure but a solution to keeping you feel young.

In addition to the latest techniques to ensure greater ease and efficiency of recovery, UOA offers same-day surgery. UOA is now one of the few practices that can do complex joint replacement surgeries in an out-patient setting. Patients can go home the same day to recover with no over-night stay at a hospital or in-patient rehabilitation facility. Our surgery center offers a variety of benefits, including comfort, convenience and a reduced risk for infection.

At UOA we offer on-site rehabilitation for pre and post surgery. Patients can benefit from “prehab” prior to surgery, for a quicker more complete recovery following surgery, and the option that rehab can sometimes help you avoid surgery all together. In all cases, your UOA surgeon works in close communication and cooperation with the therapist in planning and conducting your recovery.
