Team Approach to Your Care

At Schneck Orthopedics, we take a team approach to your care. It all starts with our nurse navigator who walks through your joint replacement with you, from pre-surgery appointments and testing, to your surgical procedure, and your aftercare with physical therapy and follow-up appointments. We treat you like family and ensure all your questions are answered.

Total Hip Replacement

Schneck is one of the only practices in southern Indiana to offer Anterior Approach Hip Replacement, today’s most advanced surgical technique for hip replacement.

Unlike traditional hip replacement surgery, this technique allows our surgeons to use a smaller incision on the front of the hip to replace the joint without cutting or detaching any muscle during surgery. This means less pain, a significantly faster recovery and increased mobility for patients.

Total Knee Replacement

Schneck is the only hospital in the area to offer the VISIONAIRE custom knee replacement technique. This technique leads to less scarring and a quicker recovery.

During surgery, our providers use custom-fit surgical instruments to eliminate more than 20 steps from the procedure, reducing anesthesia time, soft tissue and muscle damage, blood loss, and the threat of infection. The VISIONAIRE system reduces the risk of implant misalignment, meaning your new knee may last longer than implants placed using traditional methods.

Partial Knee Replacement

The Oxford Partial Knee implant from Biomet Orthopedics is a partial knee implant designed to repair only one of the three compartments, making it much smaller than a total knee implant. The Oxford implant is designed to prevent or delay the need for total knee replacement.

  • The Oxford Partial Knee is currently the only fully mobile bearing partial knee system available in the United States.

  • Surgeons and patients have access to a system with excellent clinical results.

  • Research has shown that the newer types of partial knee replacements, particularly those with moveable plastic bearings like the Oxford Partial Knee, have low wear rates, potentially giving the implants longer life expectancies.

Shoulder Replacement

We leverage advanced technology to ensure shoulder replacements restore strength and mobility, while requiring the least amount of recovery time possible. That means you can return to your life faster.

Total Ankle Replacement

Schneck Podiatrist, Dr. Evan Aldridge, offers advanced procedures like Total Ankle Replacement to alleviate pain, while maintaining range of motion in the ankle joint. Learn more about other advanced podiatric procedures at Schneck Podiatry.

Joint Replacement Specialists

Schneck is one of a handful of Indiana hospitals to receive The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for hip and knee replacements. This national recognition means you can be confident that you are getting the highest level of orthopedic care.
