Hip & Knee Replacement Specialist
Dr. Christian J. Eccles is an orthopedic surgeon in Conway and Myrtle Beach, SC. He specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery and strives to provide world-class care to each individual patient.
Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cartilage and bone are removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components. The main indication for total hip replacement is arthritis.
Total knee replacement is usually indicated for severe osteoarthritis of the knee. It is the most common form of knee arthritis in which the joint cartilage gradually wears away, and often affects the elderly.
The ROSA® Hip & Knee System supports Dr. Eccles in performing Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) and Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) with features to assist with the bone resections, as well as assessing the state of the soft tissues to facilitate implant positioning intraoperatively.
