The Virtua Joint Replacement Institute helps patients get back to doing the things they love faster. In fact, many patients go home the same day. As one of the few healthcare providers to offer minimally invasive joint replacement surgery, Virtua has become the Institute of “I got my life back” for countless patients from around the country.
Virtua is known throughout the region for offering a level of personal care and attention patients won’t find anywhere else. From the initial consultation and all the way through rehab, the Virtua team is there with patients to help them get back on their feet sooner.
As a national pioneer in minimally invasive joint replacement surgery, the Virtua Joint Replacement Institute offers same-day total knee replacement surgery. Unlike other options, the quadriceps tendon is not cut so individuals recover faster. Virtua’s same-day, patient-friendly knee replacement surgery helps patients recover faster, with minimal pain medication, and spend less time in physical therapy. Because surgery only requires a 3- to 4-inch incision, and won’t involve cutting the quadriceps tendon, patients are able to walk sooner, with more stability and support than patients experience from more invasive procedures.
A reason for replacing the hip joint may be due to severe arthritis pain that limits a person's activity. Virtua offers minimally invasive hip surgery which uses smaller incisions as opposed to traditional "open" surgery where larger incisions are made. This includes anterior hip replacement. Because the surgeon is often able to cut through less tissue, muscle and nerve, there is less trauma to the body.
