For years, patients have benefited from minimally invasive surgeries offered by Frank Femino, MD. Same-day partial knee replacement, small-incision total knee replacement and minimally invasive total hip replacement have freed patients from a life of pain and returned them to their active lifestyle (this includes anterior hip replacement surgery).
Minimally invasive procedures performed by Dr. Femino have minimized blood loss, decreased pain during rehabilitation and shortened the patient’s hospital stay. The benefits include:
Newer Polyethylene, metals and ceramics are promising longer life to implants for joint replacement; some may now last a lifetime. Dr. Femino has spent considerable time designing and modifying implants for surgery, developing prototypes and lending his expertise to biomedical research and development. This unique expertise also contributes to repeated surgical success.
