  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Computer-guided approach to surgery 

Minimally Invasive Direct Anterior Approach to Total Hip Replacement

We are pleased to be the first in Virginia to offer the anterior approach to total hip replacement for our patients. This procedure has gained widespread popularity because of the proven accelerated recovery time for patients. With this approach, the surgeon can avoid cutting specific muscles and tissues. Through the use of a special table, called the Hana table, physicians can maneuver the hip joint and leg into a more stable position. This approach also offers less scarring and fewer restrictions during recovery.

Hip Resurfacing: Preserving More of Your Natural Bone

More popular with our younger patients, hip resurfacing is a type of hip replacement that removes less bone than a traditional hip replacement but replaces the arthritic surfaces of the joint. This method of arthroplasty has been widely used in Europe, but is relatively new to the United States. It is more commonly performed on younger patients to prolong the need for replacement of the total hip joint as they grow older. Hip resurfacing is not recommended for patients with osteoporosis.

Minimally Invasive Approach to Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement is an orthopaedic procedure that is used to replace the damaged or worn surfaces of the knee. Most commonly, it is used to repair a knee that has been damaged by arthritis. Replacing these surfaces will relieve pain and increase mobility, allowing you to return to your normal, everyday activities.

The traditional approach to knee replacement uses a long vertical incision in the center of the knee to view and access the joint. The minimally invasive approach to total knee replacement is a variation of this approach. Our physicians may use a shorter incision and a different, less-invasive technique to expose the joint—with the goal of reducing postoperative pain and speeding recovery.

Minimally Invasive Approach to Partial Knee Replacement

Based on the principle of joint preservation, partial knee replacements target treatment of only the damaged area or arthritic portion of the knee while preserving healthier portions of normal cartilage, bone, and ligaments. Advances in technology have made partial knee replacements a better option than full knee replacements for certain patients.

Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement: A New Approach for Challenging Patients

The reverse total shoulder replacement has been successful in restoring active overhead elevation and pain relief for many patients. It works by achieving complex biomechanical changes. In a nutshell, the operation alters the center of rotation of the shoulder joint, which decreases the likelihood that the new components will loosen and fail. It also allows the deltoid muscle to raise the arm. Patients with severe pain and dysfunction who are not good candidates for standard TSR or in whom that procedure has been unsuccessful, Reverse TSR may be able to offer significant improvement in comfort and function.
