Replacement Surgery Offers Hope, Freedom
We Americans are living longer, which means many of us are wearing out our joints. For example, an estimated 693,400 of us underwent total knee replacement surgery in 2010, according to recent statistics.
If you think that number is high, consider this: It’s expected to continue to grow. And why not? No one deserves to be sidelined by crippling knee pain. Instead, we all deserve to live active, healthy lives for as long as we can. For hundreds of thousands of Americans each year, total knee replacement surgery is the answer that restores their mobility and allows them to reclaim active, pain-free lives.
Kayal Orthopaedic Center is proud of the role it plays in providing patients with hope and freedom. Dr. Robert A. Kayal is one of the leading innovators when it comes to total knee replacement surgery. He was also the first surgeon to offer customized knee replacement surgery in Northern New Jersey.
Today, Kayal Orthopaedic Center is still one of just a handful of practices across the country that uses 3D blueprints for custom knees through Zimmer® Patient Specific Instrumented (PSI) computer-assisted navigation technology. You can find out more about the procedure here.
As Dr. Kayal says, “All knees are not created equal.”
So, all knee replacements should not be created equal either.
Traditional knee replacement surgery is a one-size-fits-all approach, which often means more bone must be removed to make your new knee fit into place. Even with cutting, the new knee could be too small or too large for your anatomy.
With a custom-fit knee replacement, your new knee fits snugly into place with minimal bone loss. In addition, your recovery time is quicker, your rehabilitation is smoother and your new knee lasts longer.
Dr. Kayal performs custom knee replacements at Chilton Medical Center and HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley, which means your surgery can be performed where it is convenient for you.
