Medical Advances Revolutionize Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement
Date:12/28/2009

cartilage and damaged first layer of bone are removed and a new metal surface is installed. Dr. Westrich says hip resurfacing generally allows patients to engage in higher levels of activity after the surgery and recuperation. Not all patients qualify for hip resurfacing, though, and the proper diagnosis is key. The best candidates tend to be patients under 65 with debilitating arthritis, but active older patients with good bone quality may also be eligible.

Partial Knee Replacement
For patients with severe knee pain from arthritis, a partial knee replacement may be possible. Less extensive than total joint replacement, it is appropriate for patients whose arthritis is limited to just one area of their knee. “Patients who qualify for a partial joint replacement experience less pain right after surgery, have a quicker recovery and rehabilitation, and have a shorter hospital stay,” Dr. Westrich says. “Yet the procedure completely relieves arthritis pain and allows patients to return to activities they were forced to give up.” Another advantage is that it preserves the normal bone and cartilage in the rest of the knee that would typically be replaced in a total joint procedure.”

When choosing an orthopedic surgeon and hospital for joint replacement, parents should make sure the physician specializes in this type of surgery and is highly experienced in the procedure, Dr. Westrich advises. A wealth of information about joint replacement is available at the web site: www.westrichmd.com. Anyone wishing to make an appointment with Dr. Westrich can call 212-606-1510.
