Joint reconstruction includes a variety of surgical procedures that treat joint damage due to injury or disease. Dr. Khaimov is highly skilled in reconstructive surgeries of the hip and knee, including:
Of the four major ligaments in your knee, the ACL is the most commonly injured. If the ACL is completely torn, Dr. Khaimov may need to perform ACL reconstruction. Most of the time, Dr. Khaimov uses minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to reconstruct the ACL.
If a condition, such as arthritis, damages your hip or knee, joint resurfacing may provide relief from pain and other symptoms. Resurfacing involves trimming damaged tissue from the surface of your bone and replacing it with an artificial covering.
Severe arthritis or serious fractures may require total joint replacement. Knee and hip replacement procedures involve removing the entire diseased joint and replacing it with artificial components.
Joint replacements can fail for a number of reasons, including wear-and-tear and loosening of the implant. If you have a failed primary knee or hip replacement, Dr. Khaimov may perform revision surgery to correct it.
Dr. Khaimov uses reconstructive surgery to treat a broad range of knee and hip problems, including:
As a conservative surgeon, Dr. Khaimov always explores nonsurgical options first. When surgery is necessary, he uses the least invasive method available.
Dr. Khaimov uses the most cutting-edge techniques in his field, including computer-assisted technology. Using computer navigation, Dr. Khaimov can perform your procedure with precise measurements and the highest level of accuracy.
The enhanced precision and control offered by computer-navigated reconstructive surgery results in a better-fitting joint replacement that isn’t too big or too loose. In addition to reducing the risk of joint failure, this technology leads to an easier recovery for you.
