The Total Joint Replacement Program at Kona Community Hospital and Ali`i Health Center was developed to provide surgical options for relief of hip and knee pain from arthritis, joint disorders or injury. We have implemented a comprehensive, planned course of treatment, which we call a same-day joint replacement program.

We now offer robotic-assisted joint replacement surgeries, which allows for more precise surgeries and a faster recovery time.  Dr. Paul Morton was the first orthopedic surgeon in Hawaii to successfully complete this procedure. The benefits of robotic-assisted surgeries include:
