Joint Replacement

America's 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacements

Normally, all of the parts of the knee, hip, shoulder or ankle joint work together, and the joint moves easily and without pain. Injury or disease can disrupt the normal functioning of a joint, which can limit your movement and cause pain. Joint replacements are often the best treatment plan to restore function and pain-free movement.

At Coordinated Health, part of Lehigh Valley Health Network, our expert joint replacement surgeons are performing an increasing number of joint replacements, as people are living longer and wanting more active lives. We are also performing them on younger patients, when needed, as there have been significant advances in artificial joint technology.

I was surprised to learn that I was going to need a knee and hip replacement at 46 years old, but Dr. Luchetti was confident that I would be able to return to my active lifestyle. The year I had my joint replacements I was able to ski 20 to 30 times.
