Professional athletes and active people put their trust in our expertise, which includes sophisticated knee replacement surgery. We use the latest surgical technologies, so you recover in weeks, not months. Most patients start feeling better within hours of surgery.
Healthy knees make it possible to perform activities we take for granted, such as walking, getting up from a seated position, and climbing stairs. During knee replacement surgery, we remove the damaged portions of your knee and replace them with artificial joints made of metal and plastic.
The most common reason for this procedure is to treat knee pain that does not respond to other treatments. Find out more about knee pain.
Our experts offer a wide range of knee replacement options, tailoring your care to meet your medical needs and personal preferences. We may replace only the damaged portion of your knee or take care of both knees in one procedure.
We were the first in Pennsylvania to perform knee minimally invasive knee replacements using Mako® robotic surgery technology. This technology helps our surgeons perform knee replacement surgery with six times more precision than traditional techniques. We preserve more healthy joint tissue, so the new joint feels more natural. Learn more: Robotic-Aided Precision Means Faster Recovery and More Mobility.
