RIDGEWOOD, N.J. - June 23, 2013 - PRLog -- Joint health is something healthy individuals often take for granted. You use your joints constantly to support your body as you move, work, and play, and joint pain can range in severity depending on the cause. Unfortunately, some people sustain so much damage in their joints due to arthritis or other progressive diseases that the natural joint wears out. Joint replacement surgery ( is sometimes the only effective way to eliminate pain and restore mobility.

Dr. Robert A. Kayal, MD is a pioneer in the field of joint replacement surgery (, particularly in the area of minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Joint replacement using MIS involves smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays and a quicker overall recovery. Most patients who receive partial or total joint replacement with MIS are up and walking within one day! Dr. Kayal and the Kayal orthopaedic team take MIS a step further with the concept of "outpatient joint replacements." Because of the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, patients receiving a unicompartmental ( or patellofemoral knee replacement ( can even go home the same day.

The many types of surgeries performed with minimally invasive orthopaedic procedures include:


Completely arthroscopic rotator cuff and labral/SLAP repairs


ACL reconstruction
arthroscopic lateral collateral or LCL ligament replacement
arthroscopic medial lateral or MCL ligament replacement
Cartilage transplantation and regeneration
Meniscal repairs and debridement
patellofemoral knee joint replacement surgery
Unicompartmental knee replacement


Partial hip replacement
Total hip replacement
Arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
Labral tears
Cam and pincer lesions
Removal of loose bodies


Cervical and lumbar disc surgery
Surgery for sciatica
Cervical fusions (ACDF)
Posterior surgical decompressions


Ankle arthroscopy for OCD
Loose bodies
