Joint replacement surgery
In severe cases or when all other treatment options have been considered, your doctor may recommend joint replacement surgery. We offer several joint replacement procedures to help with chronic joint injuries and arthritis.
Our hip and knee replacement surgeries have earned us The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval. Our expert orthopedic surgeons use the latest joint replacement techniques and technology, including minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgical options. With this cutting-edge technology, joint replacements are more customized, require less recovery time and often produce better results.
Minimally invasive knee replacement surgery
We use a range of advanced technologies to provide minimally invasive knee replacement surgery. We offer robot-assisted knee replacements with 2D and 3D preoperative planning.
Our computer-assisted tools allow precise alignment and rotation of hip and knee implants. We also use sensor-assisted knee replacement technology to help ensure the knee is appropriately balanced.
Our hospital is a leader in joint replacements and on the leading edge of knee replacement procedures with our robotic-arm assisted surgery system that is available for our surgeons.
When using this system, our surgeons can personalize a knee replacement plan based on the patient's unique anatomy. During the procedure, the surgeon will guide the robotic arm to a predetermined surgical area, the surgical system ensures the robotic arm remains within the surgical space, reducing the potential for error. Once in the correct position, the surgeon will control the robotic arm while placing and aligning the implant with increased accuracy.
This system at Menorah also utilizes a downloadable app for notifications, pre- and post-surgery. Additionally, the system can use a smart knee implant for patients who are candidates for the technology. The implant works in combination with in-person visits and can connect the patient with their care team 24/7, to help with a more informed recovery. It gathers information about the patient's new knee after surgery such as range of motion, step count, cadence, average walking speed, etc., and sends the data directly to the care team via the aforementioned app.
Anterior approach hip replacement surgery
We offer minimally invasive hip replacement surgery using the anterior approach. With this method, the orthopedic surgeon accesses the hip joint through a small incision on the front of the hip. This approach does not displace muscle tissue, resulting in smaller scars and shorter recovery times than traditional hip replacement surgery.
Pre-surgical and post-surgical care
If joint replacement surgery is recommended, we provide a full continuum of care that includes:
- A pre-surgery class where the patient and caregiver learn about the procedure, what precautionary measures to take and the discharge process
- Nurse specialists who guide patients throughout their surgical journey and answer any questions they have
- Rehabilitation specialists who offer services and education while patients are in the hospital and after surgery
Our sports medicine program is made up of clinical specialists, athletic trainers and physical therapists who offer specialty assessments, quality treatments and comprehensive rehabilitation for sports- and exercise-related injuries. We are also actively involved in educating all types of athletes, family members, coaches and caregivers about injury prevention and recognition.
