In this case a 66-year-old patient presents with arthritis predominantly in the medial compartment. Dr. Jeffrey Zarin explains how to use the Mako robot to precisely plan and perform a total knee arthroplasty surgery on this patient. Preoperatively, he uses a CT scan to create a model of the patient in order to determine the appropriate implant size, and intraoperatively, he utilizes the Mako robot to assist in ligament and gap balancing, perform the osteotomies, and make precise corrections.
A 60-year-old female’s biochemical workup concluded she had primary hyperparathyroidism, and preoperative images suggested a left lower parathyroid lesion. Consequently, Dr. Tobias Carling performed a minimally invasive parathyroidectomy under local cervical anesthesia while preserving the esophagus and recurrent laryngeal nerve. Intraoperative PTH proved complete resection.
Dr. Michael Reinhorn performs a pilonidal cleft lift procedure, thoroughly describing the pre-op, post-op, and intraoperative steps, on a young man who previously had surgery but experienced recurrence.
