It sounds like science fiction – robots doing surgery. But in the hands of an expert, this advancement in orthopedic surgery is a medical marvel. Dr. Vipul Dua, M.D. is a highly experienced and leading orthopedics specialist in robotic surgery in Manchester. He treats patients on an individual basis and believes in exploring the use of conservative treatments prior to surgical intervention. His practice provides state of the art nonsurgical and minimally invasive surgical care including arthroscopic procedures and robotic-assisted joint replacement procedures of the hip and knee, so that you may rapidly return to activity. Our compassionate and experienced staff focuses on patient education, comfort, and quick recovery. Dr. Dua offers comprehensive treatments to many orthopedic problems including robotic-assisted hip and minimally invasive total knee replacement surgery (MIS).
The robotic surgery in Manchester utilizes minimally invasive unicompartmental knee replacement whenever possible. This approach uses an incision about half the length of traditional surgery and involves very little disruption of the tissues and ligaments within and around the knee by replacing only the worn, weight-bearing surfaces on the inner side of the knee. Called a partial knee replacement, this knee surgery enjoys great patient acceptance because it is relatively smaller and more comfortable than traditional knee replacement. However, when the arthritis or normal wear-and-tear involve the whole knee, a traditional knee replacement is the best answer. Beside technical expertise in performing knee replacement surgery, your doctor brings his knee patients the benefits of his enormous experience with pain control and rehabilitation.
