Atlanta Tourniquet Free Knee Replacement

Tourniquet Free Knee Replacement surgery is now available to the residents of Atlanta and the surrounding areas thanks to the work at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We have board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons that have faithfully served the residents of Atlanta for many years. We specialize in finding effective knee treatments for a wide range of injuries and conditions, including osteoarthritis of the knee. By combining skill and expertise with the latest advances in treatment and surgical techniques, we have helped countless individuals with arthritis and other knee conditions find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms and improved mobility and function. Our physicians offer customized treatment plans that are tailored to each specific patient’s age, lifestyle goals and activity level.

Traditionally, knee replacement surgery always involved the use of a thigh tourniquet to reduce bleeding. However, there is growing evidence to the fact that eliminating the use of a tourniquet in knee replacement surgery improves patient outcomes. Specifically, tourniquet free knee replacement surgery leads to less blood loss, less tissue trauma, less post-operative pain, less risk for deep vein thrombosis, an easier rehabilitation, a faster recovery and fewer post-operative complications.

Our doctors were among the first physicians in Atlanta to recognize the benefits of this advanced surgical technique and to incorporate it into our clinical practice.

As with all of our total joint replacement surgeries, our knee replacement patients benefit from the use of patient-specific surgical blocks. These surgical blocks are individually created based on your pre-operative MRI, and provide him with an exact outline of your knee implant—ensuring proper fit, placement and optimal function for you.
