Joint Replacement Procedures


Experience reduced pain and increased mobility with doctors Waits and Ritter's reverse total shoulder replacement. The reverse total shoulder replacement relies on undamaged muscles to position and power the arm for restored motion. See how we can help relieve your shoulder pain.


Spend less time in the operating room, less time under anesthesia and less time recovering with a knee replacement performed by one of our outstanding knee surgeons, Drs. Chad Waits and Kyle Ritter. If severe knee pain and reduced mobility are affecting your daily life, this may be the solution for you.



Recover up to 50 percent faster with a direct anterior hip replacement performed by Dr. Brad Prather. One of the few orthopedic physicians in Central Indiana that performs this technique, this approach can offer patients the possibility of less pain, less trauma and drastically reduced recovery time.

Post-Replacement Support

Physical Therapy

To relieve joint pain, and/or after a joint replacement procedure, physical therapy is typically needed for full recovery. Our physical therapists specialize in helping patients recover from joint injuries or surgery as quickly as possible. Our physical therapists will tailor an individual treatment program for your needs, using a range of treatments to help you restore mobility, stability, strength and function.

Sports Medicine

You don't need to be an athlete to benefit from sports medicine care. Anyone that is experiencing joint pain, soreness, loss of motion or weakness is a candidate for treatment by a sports medicine physician. We can diagnose, manage, rehabilitate and prevent injuries and disease of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves that allow one to move, work and be active. Whether you play golf, tennis or are training for your next marathon, our sports medicine physicians can offer specialized mobility to help you get back in the game.
