Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
Of the four major ligaments in your knee, the ACL is the most commonly injured. If the ACL is completely torn, Dr. Khaimov may need to perform ACL reconstruction. Most of the time, Dr. Khaimov uses minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to reconstruct the ACL.
If a condition, such as arthritis, damages your hip or knee, joint resurfacing may provide relief from pain and other symptoms. Resurfacing involves trimming damaged tissue from the surface of your bone and replacing it with an artificial covering.
Total joint replacement
Severe arthritis or serious fractures may require total joint replacement. Knee and hip replacement procedures involve removing the entire diseased joint and replacing it with artificial components.
Revision joint surgery
Joint replacements can fail for a number of reasons, including wear-and-tear and loosening of the implant. If you have a failed primary knee or hip replacement, Dr. Khaimov may perform revision surgery to correct it.
