Allegheny Health Network (AHN) was the first program in western Pennsylvania to use Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology for hip and knee replacement surgery. This technology uses a robotic arm with sophisticated surgical tools to help our experts perform highly precise surgeries.
AHN orthopaedic surgeons were the first in Pennsylvania to use ExactechGPS® for more precision in shoulder replacement surgery. This advanced technology combines surgeons’ expertise with a computer system to perform your shoulder surgery with a goal of advanced accuracy and precision.
This technique uses the smallest necessary incision along with a camera and miniature tools to perform complex procedures, including hand surgery. Our experience from performing thousands of procedures every year helps us deliver treatments with exceptional results. Learn more by reading Dan's story.
We use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, including procedures to examine and treat joint problems (arthroscopy) and spine surgery for back pain.
We use arthroscopy to treat many joint problems, including hip, knee, and shoulder pain. Our surgeons access the joint through several small incisions and repair damaged tissue with the help of tiny instruments. Read more about arthroscopy.
With arthroscopy, we catch and treat problems earlier, protecting you against irreversible joint damage. In addition to relieving pain, arthroscopy may delay or help you avoid additional surgeries. Read more about joint repair.
Our team includes orthopaedic surgeons who use the latest technologies to treat lower back pain and congenital (present at birth) spine conditions such as scoliosis. Read more about our Spine Division.
We offer many forms of minimally invasive spine surgery, including:
