Our Strategy For Joint Replacement Success

Joint replacement involves surgical replacement of a joint with an artificial prosthesis.  Procedures and techniques vary, but generally, patients who opt for joint replacement do so because their original joints aren’t functioning properly and are causing a lot of pain.  Sebastopol Orthopaedics offers state-of-the-art treatment by Board-Certified, trained surgeons, using the highest quality equipment and materials available.  But we know that the actual surgery is just a part of the joint replacement process.  Education, preparation and patient follow-through are important elements to ensuring the long-term success of the treatment.  To ensure your success, our staff, in partnership with Palm Drive Hospital, guides you through the full joint replacement experience, including:

  • Pre-surgery education and preparation
  • Hospital care and pain management
  • Post-surgery home care and recovery

If you think you may be a candidate for joint replacement, contact us today to make an appointment and learn what your options are.

What Our Patients Say

I wanted to thank you for patching up my “rocky” knee in November.  I’ve been going to the gym and generally being more active.  So far I’ve lost 50 pounds and best of all my ALC went from 7.7 to 5.8, yay!  It is so nice to be able to move without constant pain.  Thank you again for all you did.
Patient of Dr. Bollinger's
This is a note of great thankfulness for your most capable hands, verbal aids, and everyone’s caring manner during my recent “hip-op” surgery and post-op…My walker aid is now a memory; my can keeps getting lost in the house; I can actually stand noticeably straight; my bruise colors are fading daily; my swelling on leg is reduced daily…I can truthfully say if I’d ever need another part replaced, I’d be back to see you.
Patient of Dr. Bollinger's
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful services.  I am very grateful for my new knee.  The staff is amazingly kind and helpful and Dr. Bollinger is a very artful and skilled surgeon.
Patient of Dr. Bollinger's
Thank you for helping me with my knee surgery.  You are a good doctor.  I hope all goes well with my healing and I don’t have to come in with a “cranky” knee every few weeks!
Patient of Dr. Bollinger's
Thank you for a job well done.  No more pain.  I take long walks again.
