Owing to the natural aging process, total hip replacement due to osteoarthritis is the most common joint replacement surgery performed. With the latest advances in techniques and materials (titanium, metal alloys and ceramics), patients can expect excellent and long lasting results.
New designs and materials used in knee replacement have achieved a more natural knee movement and increased stability, allowing patients to return to their normal active lifestyle and sport. I perform PSI which is patient specific implants which are custom made in America and inserted into the patient. I perform my knee replacement surgery using a three and one computer navigated system to perform an exact and precisely aligned knee replacement.
Previously the only option for osteoarthritis of the ankle was a fusion (arthrodesis) which, although it has good results, leaves a patient with a stiff ankle and the potential for further osteoarthritis of the surrounding foot joints. A total ankle replacement maintains the mobility of the joint producing a more natural and functional gait.
