I am passionate about restoring my patients to full function and empowering them to continue their active lifestyles, regardless of age. My advanced fellowship training in sports medicine and expertise in the latest biologic, arthroscopic, and minimally invasive techniques enable me to provide personalized, patient-centered care that maximizes outcomes.
Innovative Technologies in Joint surgery to relieve pain and correct deformities
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an arthroscope. The arthroscope consists of a light system and camera that projects images of the surgical site onto a computer screen for your surgeon to clearly view. Arthroscopy is used to treat disease conditions and injuries involving the bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the shoulder joint.
Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed using an arthroscope, a viewing instrument, to diagnose or treat a knee problem through a few small incisions with the help of specialized instruments. Injuries such as ligament tears, meniscal and cartilage injuries can be addressed with arthroscopic surgery which is associated with less pain and faster recovery.
Shoulder arthroplasty or shoulder replacement surgery is performed to relieve symptoms of severe shoulder pain and disability mostly due to arthritis. In this procedure, the damaged articulating parts of the shoulder joint are removed and replaced with artificial prostheses to relieve pain and improve mobility.
Knee arthroplasty or knee replacement surgery is a procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with artificial components made of metal or plastic. Total knee replacement surgery is commonly indicated for severe osteoarthritis and can significantly improve mobility and quality of life.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Knee Replacement is a treatment option for adults living with mid to late-stage osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. Mako provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. First, a CT scan of the diseased knee joint is taken. This CT scan is uploaded into the Mako System software, where a 3D model of your knee is created. This 3D model is used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your total knee replacement.
