Joint Replacement Procedures

OPA is Alaska's leader in joint replacement and revisions. Our specialists perform hundreds of hip, knee and shoulder replacements every year and several subspecialists can also replace finger joints, ankles and elbows. OPA leads the way in emerging surgical techniques that studies have shown to help patients recover faster with longer-lasting results.

The OPA-Alpine-Alpenglow Advantage

OPA also offers coordinated care — diagnosis and pre-op visits, surgery, recovery, rehabilitation — all in one place. After surgery at in the orthopedic-focused Alpine Surgery Center, patients are wheeled down the hall to Alpenglow recovery facility. There patients recoup in comfort and immediately begin their rehabilitation work with an OPA physical therapist (or occupational therapist in the case of a shoulder replacement). This system is not only convenient, it speeds and enhances surgical recovery and is more cost-effective than recovery in a hospital.
