Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement
Hip Replacement: Arthritis of the hip produces some of worst, deepest pain we can experience. Hip replacement surgery, termed arthroplasty, is among Dr. Haig’s most commonly performed procedures. The modular, uncemented, ceramic, minimally invasive, non-muscle-cutting approach now becoming the industry standard was adopted by Dr. Scottt Haig in the 1980’s when he joined the practice with his father (Dr. A. Haig, who is widely respected as one of the most prolific hip surgeons in America and among the very first to perform cemented hip arthoplasty in our country) . It has been wonderfully successful, for over two decades a safe and reliable cure for arthritic hip pain.
Knee Replacement: Dr. Haig utilizes minimally invasive unicompartmental knee replacement whenever possible for his patients whose knee arthritis requires surgery. This approach involves very little disruption of the tissues and ligaments within and around the knee—replacing only the warn, weight-bearing surfaces on the inner side of the knee. Called a “partial” knee replacement, this surgery enjoys great patient acceptance because it is relatively smaller and more comfortable than traditional knee replacement.
When the arthritis involves the whole knee, however, a traditional knee replacement is the best answer. Having done over a thousand knee replacements, Dr.Haig is an acknowledged leader in this field. Beside his technical expertise in performing knee replacement surgery, Dr. Haig brings his knee patients the benefits of his enormous experience with pain control and rehabilitation; he served for many years as the Director of Adult Orthopedics at Helen Hayes Hospital—a world-renowned rehabilitation hospital then affiliated with Columbia University, where patients from literally around the world came for knee surgery and rehabilitation.
