Thanks to advanced diagnostics, we are able to identify joint conditions at an earlier stage than years ago. As a result, while surgery may be necessary for some patients, many can be treated via nonsurgical solutions such as medication, injections and/or physical therapy. If those options have been exhausted, it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery.
The White Plains Hospital Orthopedic Surgery Program is well known throughout the region for expertise in joint replacement surgery using both traditional and minimally invasive techniques.
Our multidisciplinary team of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, physiatrists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, radiologists, nurses, and physical therapists work collaboratively to provide a comprehensive and individualized care plan for each patient to ensure the best possible outcome and quickest recovery.
Beginning with a thorough assessment, through pre-operative education, and ultimately resulting in a comprehensive recovery and rehabilitation plan, our surgeons have decades of combined experience with joint replacements and utilize a variety of techniques to ensure optimal outcomes.

MAKO ARm-aSSISTED ROBOTIC SURGERY
White Plains Hospital employs the latest, state-of-the-art technology for partial (PKR) and total knee replacement (TKR) as well as total hip replacement (THR) with Mako® technology. Mako technology provides precise targeting to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA).
Our orthopedic surgeons utilize the Mako to create a patient-specific 3-D model in advance of joint replacement surgery for ultimate precision. The surgeon then guides the robotic arm during the procedure to remove diseased bone, preserve healthy bone, and position the new implant based on the patient’s specific anatomy.
With PKR specifically, only the damaged area of the knee joint is replaced, which minimizes trauma to healthy bone and tissue. By selectively targeting the damaged part of the knee with the Mako system, the surgeon can replace the diseased portion of the knee while sparing the surrounding healthy bone and ligaments.
Patients benefit from this personalized, innovative technique with fewer post-surgical complications, a shorter recovery time, and a quicker return to an active, healthy lifestyle.
Innovative technology is utilized in our new state-of-the-art operating rooms to treat joint conditions affecting the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and ankle. Some of the most common causes of these conditions include:
- Post-traumatic arthritis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Avascular necrosis
- Congenital birth defects
- Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
Surgical treatments include minimally invasive approaches and blood-sparing techniques for procedures such as:
- Hip arthroscopy and resurfacing
- Hip replacement
- Total knee replacement
- Unicondylar and patellofemoral knee replacement
- Complex revision surgeries
