The Virtua Joint Replacement Institute helps patients get back to doing the things they love. 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.
As a national pioneer in minimally invasive joint replacement surgery, the Virtua Joint Replacement Institute offers same-day total knee replacement surgery. Virtua’s same-day, patient-friendly knee replacement surgery only requires a 3- to 4-inch incision and doesn't involve cutting the quadriceps tendon.
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 small incisions. 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.
