 The Orthopedic Department at Wickenburg Community Hospital (WCH) specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Surgeries are performed on site; in a state-of-the-art 10,500 square foot surgical and diagnostic center, under the expertise of our nurses, surgical staff and talented hands of Dr. Mitch Wagner, MD, PLLC.  From diagnosis through treatment and recovery, your personalized treatment plan will aim to get you back to living pain free as quickly as possible. In addition, should your treatment plan require rehabilitation;  WCH offers individualized in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation services. 

Hip joint replacement surgery and knee replacement surgery are some of the most common procedures performed at our orthopedic surgery center. Dr. Wagner uses several factors; including your medical history, to help determine if joint replacement surgery is right for you. 

  • If a hip replacement is recommended, it means that it is the best treatment option to decrease hip pain improve your quality of life . Typically, this is the approach taken after you’ve tried other measures such as injections, medication, or physical therapy.
  • As the largest joint in the body, the knee is a critical hinge for your leg. A knee replacement can reduce your knee pain, muscle weakness, and function issues. If Dr. Wagner determines that you are a good candidate for knee replacement, he will determine  the best type of implant and surgical technique based on your medical history.
