It’s easy to take knees and hips for granted, but stiffness and pain can sideline you from your favorite activities or everyday tasks. The good news is: Whether you’re looking to climb a fourteener or play with your grandkids, we can help!
Our team of Denver joint replacement specialists work diligently to help patients regain or maintain their independence and improve their quality of life. We treat a range of patients, including those experiencing disability and pain from arthritis. We treat other orthopedic problems, including deformities, infections, traumatic injuries, and failed joint replacements.
We consider every patient’s individual needs, from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation, to help them move toward an active, pain-free lifestyle. Patient support begins with patient education, including a discussion about which treatments are available.
Armed with both compassion and years of experience, our physicians are dedicated to listening, answering questions and including patients in the decision-making process.
Especially when it comes to arthritis, you don’t have to wait until the pain becomes constant or you have difficulty getting around. In fact, early intervention increases the chance of getting well without surgery. Our goal is to use conservative treatment options to keep patients active. Treatment for hip and knee pain depends upon your condition and the severity of your symptoms. However, in many cases, pain can be treated using over-the-counter or prescription medication, injections, specialized exercise programs or physical therapy.
The Panorama Difference - A team of joint replacement experts
At Panorama Orthopedic and Spine Center, our joint replacement surgeons believe that to offer the highest quality care you need to concentrate your experience in your area of expertise. The average orthopedic surgeon may perform 30- 40 joint replacement surgeries a year. At Panorama, each of our joint replacements surgeons perform hundreds of joint replacements a year. Repetition breeds excellence and our surgeons are experts in this area.
If surgery is necessary, you can rely on our experienced team of doctors, who specialize in joint replacement and revision joint replacement. In addition, we have doctor’s specializing in the newest approaches to hip and knee replacement. These options are designed to help patients heal faster with less pain.
Using the anterior approach to hip replacement allows the surgeon to work between muscles, instead of through them. Both Dr. Peace, Dr. Thomas and Dr. Hugate are specialists in the anterior approach to hip replacement. Patients typically experience a quicker and less painful recovery.
Specialized training and instrumentation enable Dr. Foran to perform traditional knee replacement surgery in a minimally invasive manner. By using smaller incisions he is able to complete the surgery without cutting tendons or ligaments, and with less disruption to the soft tissues. This, too, allows patients to typically recover quicker.

Complex Revision Joint Replacement
Sometimes referred to as revision arthroplasty, revision joint replacement is sometimes necessary when a joint replacement implant wears out, causes pain, becomes unstable, gets deeply infected, or starts to fail.
Complex joint revisions are thankfully uncommon and require a skilled surgeon to properly perform. Revision joint replacement surgery is complex and requires meticulous skill and planning. If it is complicated enough to require bone or joint reconstruction, it requires a doctor who is specialized in complex orthopedics.
At Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center, Dr. Ron Hugate’s expertise in complex revision and reconstruction provides other orthopedic surgeons and patients suffering from a failed joint replacement with a resource and a referral center.
While it is rare that a patient may need a joint revision, it is typically due to one of the following causes:
- Loosening of the joint replacement parts, which leads to instability, reduced range of motion, and pain. Revision is done in this case to remedy the instability and reduced range of motion.
- A fracture of the bones that hold the joint replacement implant in place could cause instability in the joint or a separation of the implants from the bone.
- Infection in the joint, which can cause loosening of the implant and lead to stiffening and pain in the replaced joint.
- Trauma to a joint with a joint replacement that results in implant breakage, loosening or instability.
- Joint instability (joint “pops out”) when an implant wears out or is not properly positioned in the bone.
- An implant wears out over a long time. If the plastic pieces in joint implants begin to wear that may be the only part that needs revision, in other cases, the entire implant may need to be revised or replaced.
