For patients with a diseased or damaged knee who have found no pain relief from conservative treatments, custom 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.
Robotic-assisted surgery is one of these empowering options. Dr. Kayal is specially trained to use the Mako robotic arm for custom total knee replacement, partial knee replacement and patellofemoral replacement surgery. The robotic arm helps smooth and shorten recovery times because it allows the surgeon to align and position the new knee with greater precision. Robotic-assisted surgery combines the skill and judgment of the surgeon with the accuracy and control of robotics.
Dr. Kayal, a sports medicine specialist, is the regional pioneer of yet another cutting-edge advancement in custom knee replacement surgery: Zimmer® Patient Specific Instrumented (PSI) computer-assisted navigation technology using Zimmer’s® most advanced Persona® knee replacement implants.
This technology allows the new joint to be custom-fitted to your anatomy, which speeds rehabilitation and optimizes surgical outcomes. PSI begins with painless and 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 these progressive implant procedures 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, robotic-assisted surgery and PSI offer a number of benefits over traditional knee replacement surgery.

Surgery may or may not be the answer to knee problems such as a meniscus tear or ACL tear. However, one thing is certain: Dr. Kayal and his team of experts will develop a specialized treatment plan that is right for each patient.
