Non-Muscle Cutting Knee Replacement Surgery a Game-Changing 3-in-1 Combination! Dr. Ronald V. Hudanich of Hudanich Orthopedics Performs Absolutely Game-Changing 3-in-1 Combination of Knee Replacement Surgery Technique including the Robotic-Arm Assisted, Minimally Invasive, Subvastus Quad Muscle Sparing, Tourniquet-Less Approach.
Orlando, Florida, 03.20.2020
Earlier this week, Dr. Ronald V. Hudanich, Hudanich Orthopedics, performed a total knee replacement surgery on a patient in Longwood, Florida.
On this morning, the specific replacement surgery was much different to any of the previous knee replacement surgeries Dr. Hudanich has done.
Dr. Hudanich introduced a game-changing and most innovative new non-muscle cutting approach to knee replacement surgery.
Ronald V. Hudanich, DO, now combines 3 of the latest and most innovative
techniques in knee replacement surgery:
(1) Stryker Mako® robotic-arm assisted,
(2) minimally invasive, subvastus quad muscle sparing (non-muscle cutting),
(3) tourniquet-less approach for total knee replacement surgery.
The patient will benefit greatly with this newest combination and most advanced orthopedic surgery approach, as it is a minimally invasive knee replacement surgery procedure, resulting in less damage to soft tissues, leading to a quicker, less painful recovery and more rapid return to normal activities.
How the Non-Muscle Cutting 3-in-1 Combination Works
The quad tendon (quadriceps) connects the large quadriceps muscle group on the front of the thigh to the kneecap.
In a traditional total knee replacement surgery the quadriceps tendon will be cut. The orthopedic surgeon moves the kneecap out of the way to access the arthritic joint.
The newer minimally invasive knee replacement surgery avoids the quadriceps tendon and muscle, and therefore is a complete muscle sparing, non-muscle cutting approach.
The same artificial joint used in conventional knee replacements is sized and fit into place, using the precision of robotic-arm assisted surgery technology.
A key factor of the minimally invasive knee surgery is to protect and preserve muscles, since your muscles provide control and strength to your knees.
The muscles are also an important factor in regaining motion. Hence, not cutting or detaching the muscles around the knee results in less pain, better motion and faster recovery.
When combined with the Stryker Mako® robotic-arm assisted surgery and tourniquet-less technology, the patient experiences less thigh pain, less swelling, increased and earlier range of motion and, an overall feel of their knee being more natural and more like their own, original knee that they were born with.
"As we are continually working on improving the process to allow patients to return to their normal life as quickly as possible, we are very excited about this most advanced and innovative combination of the latest and greatest technology available to surgeons," said Ronald V. Hudanich, DO, "it is yet another step for us to help our patients recover quicker."
This minimally invasive technique is not suitable for all patients and it should only be performed by a well-trained, highly experienced orthopedic surgeon.
Ronald V. Hudanich, DO, is one of the most experienced orthopedic surgeons in Central Florida. Dr. Hudanich is also one of the nationwide leading orthopedic surgeons specializing in the Stryker Mako® robotic-arm assisted joint replacement technology for hip and knee replacement surgeries.
