Orthopedic Surgery

Thousands of people suffer orthopedic injuries. Saint Peter's University Hospital provides innovative medical and surgical care for patients of all ages, from adolescents to seniors.

We were the first to pioneer–and remain one of the few hospitals in the metropolitan area to offer–endoscopic laser diskectomy, an outpatient procedure performed to remove herniated disc material. This procedure differs from open lumbar disc surgery in that it eliminates traumatic back muscle dissection, bone removal and the need for a large skin incision.

Gender Knee

The Zimmer® Gender Solutions™ Knee is one of the first knee implant shaped to fit a woman's anatomy. A special technique called Minimally Invasive Solutions™ (MIS) Quad-Sparing™ total knee arthroplasty allows patients to generally return home sooner, recover and return to their normal activities faster, and have smaller scars.

Hip Resurfacing

Hip resurfacing is a new alternative to total hip replacement for young, active adults with severe arthritis, dysplasia or other hip diseases. The procedure preserves more of the native bone, leaving more material to support another implant should a total hip replacement be needed years later. This innovative procedure can benefit women ages 60 or younger and men ages 65 or younger who lead active lives and do not have osteoporosis or certain kinds of severe arthritis.

Traditional total hip replacement surgery is also available for patients who will benefit more from that type of procedure.

Kyphoplasties

This type of minimally invasive back surgery is performed on patients who have suffered vertebral fractures, usually as a result of osteoporosis. While the patient is under a local or general anesthetic, a small incision is made in the back. A cementlike material is injected into the vertebral area via an inflated balloon. Patients usually return home the day of the procedure.

Sports Medicine

Saint Peter's Sports Medicine Institute recognizes the unique relationship between orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. Orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists work with physical therapists using a comprehensive repair, rehabilitation and education program that helps individuals return to physical activity as soon as possible.

The Sports Medicine Institute helps people of all ages and physical abilities build physical strength, aerobic threshold, flexibility and endurance.
