Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
La Peer Health Systems is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new website, KneeSurgeryMD.com, a sub-division of the Beverly Hills surgery center devoted to treating knee injuries known as the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence.
The Knee Surgery Center of Excellence is focused 100% on helping patients recover from devastating knee injuries. The orthopedic surgeons are on the cutting-edge of surgical techniques and technology, performing state-of-the-art surgeries routinely at La Peer Health Systems, and want to help the public learn about these advanced procedures.
“Our goal at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence is to provide patients with world-class treatments for all types of knee injuries,” said Dr. Rajan Patel, a Beverly Hills orthopedic surgeon and Director of the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence.
Not many patients realize that many orthopedic procedures can be performed arthroscopically. This new website is designed to help spread awareness of cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures. Because patient recovery times are - in most cases - shorter and scarring also minimized, our orthopedic surgeons prefer minimally invasive procedures to traditional open procedures. Some of the innovative procedures offered at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence include: knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, revision knee surgery, patella tendon repair, partial knee replacement, and total knee replacements. Other knee conditions treated include: knee arthritis, baker’s cysts, knee fractures, meniscus tears, and patellofemoral instability.
“We want the public to know that there are some really good surgical options for serious knee injuries,” said Peter Newton, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence. “Keep in mind that surgery only becomes the a viable option after more conservative, non-surgical options are exhausted. When that happens, we try to be as minimally invasive as possible during surgery.”
The Knee Surgery Center of Excellence is headed up by its director, Rajan Patel, MD. Backing up Dr. Patel are eight extremely talented doctors. The doctors at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence include Dr. Newton; Joseph Isaacson, MD; Melvin Nutig, MD; Jason Snibbe, MD; Andrew Weiss, MD; Eric Millstein, MD; Sonu Ahluwalia, MD; and Steven Meier, MD.
In addition to educating the public and providing world-class surgical options for perspective patients, the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence also wants to give back to the community and the world at large. One of La Peer’s missions is to provide the highest quality in patient care, but that doesn’t just include our patients. As such, a portion of the proceeds at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence will be donated to Arthroscopy Worldwide.
Arthroscopy Worldwide is a non-profit organization that strives to educate doctors in developing nations around the world on advanced surgical techniques. These advanced techniques include many of the innovative arthroscopic procedures performed at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence. Arthroscopy Worldwide was founded by Dr. Meier, and he personally takes trips to developing countries to educate doctors on his advanced techniques.
