High Tech Spot - Minimally Invasive Hip & Knee Replacement Surgery
Enjoyment of life and staying active is important to everyone. But for those who suffer from osteoarthritis, or wear and tear arthritis in the hip or knee, limitations may force them to give up that lifestyle. Osteoarthritis affects over 21 million people in the Unites States. The breakdown of the cartilage between bones leads to painful bone on bone friction. Symptoms include, joint pain, aching, stiffness, muscle weakness, limping and loss of motion.
We offer patients an alternative to conventional hip and knee replacements with techniques that utilize smaller incisions and make recovery a much easier process.
While every patient is not a candidate for these procedures, many patients can undergo the hip or knee replacement through this small incision technique.
The hip and knee replacement surgeries involve removing the damaged portion of the hip or knee and replacing it with an artificial implant called a prosthesis designed to allow movement with decreased pain.
Because the incision is smaller using the minimally invasive technique, patients have less pain, spend less time in the hospital and can be active sooner.
For more information on the minimally invasive hip or knee replacement surgeries, or to find out if you are a candidate, call our office (201) 436-8289 to arrange a consultation with one of our surgeons.
