Total Joint Replacement Expertise

The Joint Commission Gold Seal The Queen’s Medical Center’s Joint Center is the first in Hawaii to receive Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement awarded by The Joint Commission. The Joint Commission’s Certificate of Distinction recognizes that Queen’s is among the select hospitals achieving optimal outcomes for hip and knee joint replacement surgeries.


Total Hip Replacement for Improved Function

In some cases, painful arthritis in the hip joint makes walking difficult and you may experience increased pain with every step. Or, an accident or fall may cause a fracture or break in a hip joint. Our team is able to fully replace the diseased or fractured hip joint for improved function and reduced pain.


Total Knee Replacement to Increase Mobility

Painful arthritis or the simple wear and tear of your knee joints over time can create mobility or movement issues and can also be very painful, especially after extended walking or other activities. If you are experiencing this type of painful joint condition, our team at the Queen’s Medical Center’s Orthopedic and Spine Center can help. Talk to one of our team members to learn how you can eliminate painful joints through total knee replacement.
