Dr. Porat specializes in performing minimally invasive total hip and knee replacement. His other areas of specialization include complex joint reconstructions, revision hip and knee replacement, and non-operative treatment of hip and knee disorders for adolescents and adults.
“Minimally invasive joint replacement is a very exciting area of medicine,” he says. “The revolutionary techniques we’re performing at the Virtua Joint Replacement Institute are helping patients return home faster and get back to their desired activities sooner than with traditional surgeries.”
Dr. Porat is a lifelong resident of Philadelphia. His interests include SCUBA diving, skiing and karate, where he’s achieved the rank of Black Belt.
