PARTIAL AND TOTAL JOINT REPLACEMENT SURGERY
NJ orthopedist Robert A. Kayal, MD is highly trained in the field of joint replacement surgery. Most orthopaedic surgeons perform about 20 joint replacements per year, while Dr. Kayal routinely performs more than 200-250 joint replacements each year. The types of joint replacement procedures that Dr. Kayal regularly performs include:
Dr. Kayal is the regional pioneer of the partial knee and the patellofemoral knee replacement technology and has been performing these procedures for years. In fact, Kayal has performed more of these surgeries than any other orthopaedic surgeon in the region. In addition to introducing this technology to the medical community years ago, he also introduced the concept of “outpatient joint replacement surgery” to the local community and continues to perform outpatient unicompartmental and patellofemoral knee replacements on a routine basis.
Dr. Kayal possesses the distinction of performing the first-ever minimally invasive partial knee replacement and patellofemoral knee joint replacement at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ, at Patient Care Associates, LLC in Englewood, NJ, and at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, NJ, as well. These surgical procedures incorporate only a 3- to 4-inch incision as opposed to the typical 8- to 12-inch incision often required for total knee replacement surgery. As a result, patients typically return home the same day as surgery, enduring no cutting of tendons or muscle. These patients also recuperate much faster and experience far less pain than those undergoing total knee replacement surgery.
