  • surgeon performing joint surgeryWelcome to Memorial Bone & Joint, a center of excellence for joint replacement surgery and the treatment of orthopaedic conditions at Memorial University Medical Center. You may be a candidate for joint replacement if you suffer from osteoarthritis. This condition, also known as degenerative joint disease, affects about 30 million Americans. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that covers the end of a bone gradually wears away, leading to pain and stiffness. It usually affects weight-bearing joints such as knees and hips. Joint replacement may be an option when osteoarthritis limits everyday activities such as walking and bending. We also offer shoulder replacement surgery to repair rotator cuff or arthritis damage.
