Why choose St. Cloud Hospital?
- A high-volume center with more than 1,200 hip and knee replacements annually
- Certified nurses, fellowship-trained doctors and support staff
- Multidisciplinary team
- Quality measures which meet national benchmarks
- Nationally recognized, including Joint Commission disease-specific care certification for hip and knee replacements and Blue Distinction by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota
- State-of-the-art technology and surgical approaches including minimally invasive procedures such as direct anterior approach and dual incision with navigation technology; St. Cloud Hospital is the leading facility in the world for navigation cases.
We provide a full spectrum of joint replacement surgery in state-of-the-art operating suites equipped with the latest technology. Joint replacements for hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, toe and ankle are available.
As appropriate, the surgeons use minimally invasive/muscle sparing and traditional surgical techniques along with the newest and safest prosthetic joints. These joints may last 20 years or more. Minimally invasive surgery uses smaller incisions to spare muscle and other soft tissue, resulting in:
- Less blood loss
- Reduced pain after surgery
- Shorter hospital stays
Most hip and knee replacements performed at St. Cloud Hospital are done using this technique.

Joint replacement surgery, coupled with the latest techniques and technologies, is what helps make St. Cloud Hospital Bone & Joint Center a national leader in orthopedic care. For example, computer-assisted surgery (navigation) helps the doctor accurately position the new joint in the patient’s body.
As younger patients are having joints replaced, it is more common for the prosthetic joint to wear out or cause pain. Revising an original prosthetic joint is called a revision arthroplasty and calls for a skilled and experienced surgeon. The surgeons from St. Cloud Orthopedics are experts in this procedure and often see referrals from other health providers and medical centers throughout the region when this is needed.
