Knee

New Jersey knee surgery & replacement

The knees are durable joints that withstand tremendous amounts of pressure on a daily basis. Even though they were built for durability, knees naturally degrade over time. When wear-and-tear takes its toll, surgical intervention is sometimes necessary to relieve pain and regain mobility. Our doctors utilize the most advanced techniques and technology to treat patients with:

  • Osteonecrosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Deformities

We are the largest healthcare network in New Jersey and have performed a high volume of knee surgeries, making our orthopedic surgeons some of the most experienced in the region.

Total knee replacement

Total knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a last resort treatment for chronic knee pain and serious injuries. In this procedure, the damaged joint is replaced with a prosthetic that functions just like the original knee. Patients typically need to spend a few days at the hospital to recover from the surgery before they can return home. Full recovery can take several months, and most patients will need to participate in a physical therapy program.

We have invested in the Biomet Custom Knee system, which allows us to create highly detailed prosthetics that have been customized for each patient. This system creates a 3-D image of the patient’s knee in order to design a prosthetic that closely matches the original structure. This technology has increased the rate of successful knee replacement surgeries and reduced patient recovery time.

Partial knee replacement

Knee damage that has been confined to one area can be treated with a partial knee replacement. Partial knee replacement is a simpler procedure than total knee replacement and can be performed with minimally invasive techniques. Physical therapy is often still required for partial knee surgery recovery, but to a much lesser extent than total knee replacement.

Patellofemoral replacement

The patellofemoral joint is where the thigh born meets the shin bone, forming the kneecap. Patellofemoral replacement is a partial knee replacement where the femoral side of the knee is resurfaced with metal and plastic. This treatment is often recommended for patients with degenerative arthritis, cartilage deterioration and kneecap fractures. It is crucial to determine the cause of knee plain when deciding the appropriate course of treatment.

  • Before my surgeries, it was increasingly more difficult to walk, to exercise, to ski because of the pain. Consequently, the knee replacement surgery was like a miracle to me.
