Kayal Orthopaedic Center Uses MRI and 3D Printer for Custom Fit
Westood, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/17/2017 -- Dr. Robert Kayal, a regional pioneer in knee replacement surgery, is now using virtual reality to create state-of-the-art, custom-fit new knees for patients who need total knee replacement surgery in Ridgewood, NJ, and the surrounding areas.
Kayal Orthopaedic Center is one of the only practices in the country successfully using three-dimensional images to custom build knee replacements. After an MRI is taken, Dr. Kayal uses a 3D printer to create a knee implant that is a perfect fit for a patient's anatomy.
The 3D printer also is used to create custom-designed, patient-specific surgical tools, which are then used to align the joint and insert the implant during surgery.
The benefits of this state-of-the-art technology include:
Alignment accuracy: Precision means an improved fit for the implant and maximized stability for the joint.
Minimal invasiveness: Less bone needs to be cut, compared to traditional knee replacement surgery.
Expedited surgery: Thorough pre-planning reduces time in the operating room and speeds up the recovery period.
True customization: The implant is tailor-made, just like a perfectly fitted suit.
Dr. Kayal performs custom knee replacements at Chilton Medical Center and Hackensack UMC at Pascack Valley, where he also serves as chief of the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery.
The elite team at Kayal Orthopaedic Center has the training and experience to handle any problem that patients experience with their knees. Dr. Kayal and his colleagues will choose the most logical approach to knee replacement based on each patient's needs and characteristics. They also specialize in traditional knee replacement and partial knee replacement surgeries.
Knee replacement surgery is the most common joint replacement surgery. It is necessary for many reasons, but is most frequently performed to eliminate arthritis pain and disability. Patients who suffer from arthritis in Bergen County, NJ, and the surrounding areas can rely on Kayal Orthopaedic Center to restore the pain-free lifestyle they deserve.
