According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 54 million people in the United States suffer from arthritis. A quarter of that population of arthritis sufferers report severe joint pain.
By far, the most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis results from wear and tear of the joints, occurring most frequently in the hands, hips, knees. Over time, the cartilage that helps your joints move smoothly is worn away due to normal everyday activity. As this cartilage deteriorates, the bones of the joint can rub together, causing painful friction.
Many arthritic conditions are treatable through non-surgical methods, and CSMO can you see you through conservative care options. If non-surgical methods prove ineffective, however, the team at CSMO has the expertise, experience and facilities to provide surgical repair or total replacement of the inflamed or degenerative joint that’s causing you pain.
CSMO offers unmatched care at the area’s only free-standing orthopaedic specialized same-day surgery center. We have the tools, staff and medical expertise to evaluate your condition, pursue the best path to a smooth recovery, and provide lasting relief from joint pain.
Total Knee Replacement
As the only same-day total knee replacement surgery center in the greater Chattanooga region, CSMO offers expert medical care in our state-of-the-art facility. Our doctors and staff have performed hundreds of successful total knee replacement surgeries, each one with an emphasis on scientific excellence and thoughtful patient care.
Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement

CSMO puts outpatient joint replacement and cutting-edge surgical pain resolution techniques within reach of almost anyone, all without the cost, stress, and hassle of an extended inpatient stay at the hospital.
Total Hip Replacement
In the past, surgeons were hesitant to recommend or perform total hip replacement for younger people because all too often it required or led to a sequence of multiple operations. Today, leading surgery centers like CSMO can confidently offer same-day total hip replacement to reduce pain, increase mobility, and tremendously improve a patient’s quality of life for years or even decades to come. Patients are no longer forced to accept the limitations that accompany arthritic conditions.
Anterior Hip Replacement
Total hip replacement is one of the most common operations performed in the United States, with over 300,000 procedures performed yearly. This number is expected to rise dramatically, partly due to patients living longer, having higher expectations about quality of life and function and having access to high quality surgical care. One option for total hip replacement is the direct anterior approach, a minimally invasive surgical technique that can result in quicker recovery, less pain and a reduced risk of dislocation.
Total Shoulder Replacement
If non-invasive, non-surgical methods have proved unsuccessful, then total shoulder replacement surgery can be an effective way to bring you long-term relief. Through a comprehensive analysis of the particular factors of your shoulder pain, the expert medical staff at CSMO can help determine the best treatment for you. A healthy shoulder moves more than any other joint in the body, so wear, tear, and injury of the shoulder are common.
