Zip line – New Noninvasive System for closing Surgical Incisions

Traditionally, the skin surgical incisions for hip and knee replacements were closed using surgical staples made of stainless steel. While staples have been used for a long time with a great deal of success, complications such as skin inflammation, necrosis of the skin edges, and unsightly scarring can occur. Furthermore, staple removal in the office postoperatively can be anxiety-provoking and painful. A new device called the Zip Surgical Skin Closure device, or Zipline (by Zipline Medical, Campbell, Ca), has been developed that addresses these concerns and improves upon the current methods...

Dr. Thadani's Use of MyKnee®

The knee is the largest and most complex joint of our body. It has a very hard job: carrying our body weight.

Knee pain limits your daily activities, affects your mood, your health and, definitely, your general well-being. You want to get rid of the pain and you can! There are different solutions,...

Anterior Approach Hip Replacement by Dr. Peter Thadani

The anterior approach represents an alternative to the conventional way that hip replacements are performed and may offer some significant advantages. The typical pathway, or “approach”, used by surgeons to access the hip joint for hip replacement surgery involves splitting the buttock muscles and cutting muscles in the back, or “posterior” part of the hip joint. With the anterior approach, the hip is accessed from the front and avoids cutting or detaching any muscles. This results in several potential benefits, including: Decreased postoperative pain Faster rehabilitation and...

Dr. Thadani’s Computer Guided Customized Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery has been one of the most successful procedures available for improving quality of life that had previously been lost to painful arthritis.

Our own Dr. Thadani has been performing this procedure with great success. Click here to learn more....
