Minimally-Invasive Joint Replacement
Robotic Hip Replacement
Anterior Hip Replacement
Computer-Assisted Joint Replacement
Total Knee Replacement
Knee replacement surgery has been in high demand in recent years as “baby boomers” enter their senior years while continuing to lead more active lives. Knee joint replacement is most commonly performed in men and women who have had joint damage related to arthritis, but it may also be performed following significant injury to the knee joint. Dr. Karkare offers custom knee replacement surgeries based on a wealth of diagnostic data to facilitate greater accuracy during surgery and better results afterward. Custom knee replacement surgery offers patients many benefits, including a better and more stable fit, faster recovery following surgery, less pain during recovery and decreased risks of complications like infection. Custom knee replacement surgery also involves less tissue damage so patients can return to their normal activities faster. Total knee replacement is most common, removing and replacing damaged bone on both the femur and tibia (upper and lower leg bones) for restoration of pain-free range of motion. Partial knee replacement may be considered in patients with less extensive joint damage.
