Healthgrades #1 in Michigan for Joint Replacement

#1 in Michigan for Joint Replacement

Are you or someone you know considering joint replacement? Holland hospital ranked #1 in Michigan for joint replacement surgery and is nationally recognized for orthopedic excellence.

Our areas of specialization include:


  • Hips: Don’t let chronic hip pain keep you from living an active and full life. We offer several options for relief and restoration of mobility, including total hip replacement (traditional or anterior approach) and hip resurfacing.


  • Knees: When your knees hurt, a simple walk to the mailbox can feel like a marathon. Whether you’re dealing with arthritis or a knee-related injury, we have solutions for relief and restoration of mobility, including partial and total knee replacement.


  • Shoulders: Shoulder pain can limit your freedom to perform daily activities, including dressing, bathing, driving and reaching into cupboards. Our experienced doctors have the expertise to skillfully evaluate and relieve your shoulder pain, providing treatment options like minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and total joint replacement.


  • Hand & Wrist: With so many delicate bones, ligaments, tendons and joints, injuries to the wrist and hand are common. Fortunately, today’s advanced treatments can deliver pain relief and restore mobility to these common injuries, often on an outpatient basis.
  • Foot & Ankle: Your feet can be the first area to show signs of serious conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. That’s why our orthopedic experts deliver highly effective solutions for injuries and disorders of the foot and ankle, as well as comprehensive support for keeping pace with everyday life.
