The Bethesda Orthopaedic Institute surgically treats patients with conditions relating to muscles, bones and soft tissues. Depending on a patient’s specific medical condition, alternative surgical procedures can be utilized to correct the condition. The most common procedures performed at the Bethesda Orthopaedic Institute are the following:
Recognizing that all procedures performed by Institute physicians are contemporary and up-to-date, there are several procedures that truly differentiate Bethesda’s Orthopaedic Institute from other programs and they are:
Hip Replacement: In addition to the anterior and posterior-lateral procedures, an Institute surgeon is uniquely qualified to perform the SuperPATH procedure. Resulting in minimal blood loss, shorter recovery time and little to no post-operative hip precautions, the procedure is minimally invasive and is performed only through the Bethesda Orthopaedic Institute. For a detailed explanation of the SuperPATH procedure, click here.
Knee Replacement: Knee replacement procedures are minimally invasive and can engage a navigational guidance system that significantly reduces operating room time and enhances the alignment of the bones. As is true with hip replacement procedures, all patients are walking on the day of the surgery thereby reducing the length of stay in the hospital. Using a dedicated gym and dining room on the unit, patients are rehabilitated rapidly and expeditiously reoriented to every day life. Our primary focus is to help all patients regain a desired quality of life.
