Joint replacement surgery can be life-changing for people experiencing joint pain caused by arthritis, injuries, or normal wear and tear over time. As Kansas City’s premier joint replacement specialists, Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics is excited to safely offer joint replacement procedures again after a temporary pause in elective procedures this year due to COVID-19. Through excellence in joint replacement, we are helping our patients get back to an active, pain-free life.
Joint replacements are common, but expertise and technology make a big difference in patient experience and outcomes. From joint replacement to arthroscopy and joint resurfacing, we specialize in a wide variety of comprehensive techniques and treatment options to restore function and relieve pain. Our board-certified surgeons perform more than 1,000 total joint replacements every year.
Advanced Techniques and Procedures
We are proud to offer the latest technological advances in joint replacement, including robotic-arm assisted procedures that take surgical precision and accuracy to a new level. Two of our hip and knee surgeons, Dr. Nicholas Ting and Dr. Scott Wingerter, have received specialized training and certification to perform Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for partial knee replacements, total knee replacements and total hip replacements. Both physicians are certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and have completed prestigious fellowships in the field of joint replacement.
With Mako Technology, surgeons create a virtual 3D model of the joint and personalize a surgical plan based on each patient’s unique anatomy. The surgeon can validate and adjust the plan as needed while guiding the robotic arm through the procedure of removing the joint’s damaged tissues with extreme accuracy. By keeping bone removal to a minimum and precisely placing the implant, the joint operates more smoothly and feels more natural.
The orthopedic surgeons of Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics also share expertise in conventional joint replacement surgery for total hip replacements; total and partial knee replacements; and total and reverse total shoulder replacements. In addition, we perform joint replacement for fingers, wrists, ankles and elbows.
