Raul Gosthe, M.D. specializes in Advanced Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery using modern technologies and state-of-the-art equipment. He also undertakes complex and revision surgeries.
"My specialty is hip and knee replacement surgery, including complex revisions", says Dr. Gosthe, who is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and a frequent speaker and active volunteer with the Arthritis Foundation. "Although these revision procedures can be very challenging, they make a huge difference in a patient's quality of life."
Dr. Raul Gosthe is a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon practicing at Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He specializes in minimally invasive hip and knee replacements that allow patients to have less pain and a quicker recovery.
Robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery is an alternative to the conventional knee replacement procedure. It is performed using robotic-arm technology that allows your surgeon to precisely perform the surgery through a smaller incision as compared to traditional surgery.
Revision hip replacement is a complex surgical procedure in which all or part of a previously implanted hip joint is replaced with a new artificial hip joint. A revision may be needed for various reasons including pain, infection and loosening or failure of the implants.
Traditional knee replacement involves making a 10-12 inch incision and cutting through the quadriceps muscle and tendon to access the knee joint. Over the past few years, minimally invasive knee replacement techniques have been developed to significantly reduce tissue trauma and improve patient outcomes.
Computer navigation technology helps your surgeon improve accuracy and long-term results of knee joint replacement. It provides real-time 3-D images of your mapped knee and the surgical instruments for better bone cuts, positioning of the implants, balancing of the ligament, and final alignment of the limb.
Anterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive hip surgery to replace the hip joint without cutting through any muscles or tendons as against traditional hip replacement. This approach is associated with less pain, faster recovery and improved stability.
