A Different Technique

Our Techniques

Minimum pain. Maximum gain.
If knee or hip pain is slowing you down, you don’t have to give up your active lifestyle. Did you know the fastest growing age group for joint replacements is patients between ages 45 to 55? Advancements in minimally invasive surgery are a big reason why.

We use what’s called the “quad-sparing technique” for total knee replacement, which eliminates the need to cut the quadriceps tendon.

A leader in minimally invasive, same-day total knee replacements, the Virtua Joint Replacement Institute is one of the few hospitals in the country to offer this revolutionary procedure.

Why choose Virtua for your knee replacement?

Why choose Virtua for your hip replacement?

A reason for replacing the hip joint may be due to severe arthritis pain that limits a person's activity. These days, there is no “right” age to get a joint replacement. Many younger individuals now opt for joint replacement, since the latest generation of these technologically advanced implants can last for 25 to 30 years.
