Custom Joint Solutions
There’s no reason to endure knee pain. Virtua’s Joint Replacement Program helps patients restore the ability to move pain-free following injuries to the hips or knees.
We can specifically tailor a joint replacement treatment, such as a partial knee replacement.
Why you need a partial knee replacement
Cartilage covers the ends of bones in joints to provide shock absorption during movements. It can become worn or damaged.
A partial knee replacement involves removing the damaged bone of one side of the knee and replacing it with an implant made of plastic and metal. Most patients have rapid recovery and have considerably less pain than before the surgery.Choose Virtua for your knee replacement
All Virtua joint replacement surgery is performed under ultramodern conditions.
- Orthopedic surgery operating suites are new, spacious and optimally lit.
- Anesthesia machines are state-of-the-art to maximize safety.
- After surgery, all orthopedic patients stay on a special floor, staffed with specially trained nurses.
We also offers minimally invasive surgeries which use smaller, minute incisions as opposed to traditional "open" surgeries where larger incisions are made. The surgeon is often able to cut through less tissue and muscle. Because tissue, muscle and nerve are spared, there is less trauma to the body and reduces risk of infection.

Virtua offers a comprehensive continuum of state-of-the-art surgical, nursing and rehabilitative care that includes everything from a pre-surgery orientation class and preadmission testing, to discharge planning and rehabilitation. And it’s all right here in South Jersey, close to home, family and friends.
