If you are looking for a Hartford orthopedic surgeon who is a robotic surgery expert, you have come to the right place. Using the most advanced surgical procedures to treat knee injuries, Dr. Dua excels in arthroscopy and robotic-assisted procedures. Unlike traditional surgery where large incisions are made, arthroscopy uses very small incisions, about the size of a grain of rice. An endoscope, a small camera with a light at the end of it, is placed through the incisions into the knee joint. The images are relayed back to a large screen where the doctor can find and repair the joint damage. Many of these procedures can be performed as an outpatient and healing is much faster that traditional surgery. Robotic-assisted technology is used to enable surgeons to plan partial knee or total hip replacement procedures by using three-dimensional computer imaging based on a CT scan. This allows orthopedic surgeons to determine optimal implant size, position, and alignment for each individual patient, and to map out accurately the areas of bone they want to remove. During surgery, the robotic arm system provides visual, auditory, and tactile control to help assure that surgeons cut away only the damaged bone. Recovery time is relatively fast and post-op discomfort is minimal.
Our office is also very involved in your healing process. Detailed post-operative guidelines for each procedure are discussed with our patients and can be found on our website for easy reference. As part of our treatment, our office wants to empower his patients with tools to help them recover in the comfort of their home. Your level of post-operative activity is discussed, dressing and wound care are explained, pain management strategies, including pain medications, are provided, and prophylactic antibiotic protocol is detailed all with the intention of encouraging rapid and complete healing. Our goal is to see you through the entire healing process as a team. If you are looking for a
