Knee Replacement Surgery Stops Knee Pain From Slowing You Down
For patients with a diseased or damaged knee who have found no pain relief from conservative treatments, knee replacement surgery is an option to discuss with your orthopaedic specialist. Kayal Orthopaedic Center is proud to offer various types of knee replacements, which allows our patients and their surgeon to choose the best approach based on their individual needs and characteristics.
Dr. Kayal, a sports medicine specialist, is the regional pioneer of yet another cutting-edge advancement in knee replacement surgery: Zimmer® Patient Specific Instrumented (PSI) computer-assisted navigation technology using the Zimmer’s® most advanced Persona® knee replacement implants.
This new technology allows the joint to be custom-fitted to your anatomy, which speeds rehabilitation and optimizes surgical outcomes. PSI begins with painless & radiation-free MRI imaging and preoperative planning tools that result in a 3-dimensional model of the knee joint. Accurately depicting the unique properties of your knee, the model becomes a precise surgical tool that guides bone cutting, joint alignment, pin insertion and custom instrumentation. Essentially, PSI technology allows surgeons to perform a virtual knee replacement in advance of your surgery—and replace your damaged joint with a new knee designed specifically for your body and lifestyle.
Dr. Kayal and his team of knee surgeons perform this progressive implant procedure at both Chilton Medical Center & Hackensack University Medical Center Pascack Valley. Patients throughout Bergen County, in and near the New Jersey towns of Franklin Lakes, Glen Rock, Paramus, Westwood and Ridgewood, can take advantage of this technology. Paired with proven, minimally invasive surgical techniques, PSI offers a number of benefits over traditional knee replacement surgery.
