Dr. Daniel Chan is an expert and knee replacement and reconstruction. He utilizes the latest techniques and instrumentation to achieve a minimally-invasive and well-balanced knee replacement and is a leader in South Florida for outpatient surgery in an ambulatory surgical center. He also employs the latest technology including robotic assisted knee replacement with the Velys Robotic Knee System. As an orthopaedic trauma specialist, Dr. Chan also is an expert in complex knee fracture reconstruction and also performs revision (re-do) knee replacement surgery where patients have had failed prior hip replacements. Please see below for additional information on relevant knee conditions and procedures.
Dr. Daniel Chan Explains New Technology for Precision Knee Replacement
The award-winning surgeons at Memorial Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine Center are the first in South Florida to use the VELYSTM Robotic-Assisted Solution, a technology that helps them perform knee replacement surgery tailored to each patient's unique anatomy to increase mobility, decrease pain and minimize recovery time, so patients can confidently return to their normal, active lifestyle sooner.
Unicompartmental knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgery in which only the damaged compartment of the knee is replaced with an implant. It is also called a partial knee replacement
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.
Total knee replacement is the surgical treatment for knee arthritis, where the damaged knee is removed and replaced with an artificial knee implant.
Short-stay and fast-track knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the worn-out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with prostheses.
Total knee replacement is a very successful surgical treatment for knee arthritis. Over the years, minimally invasive knee replacement surgical techniques have been developed to lessen tissue trauma and improve patient outcomes.
A unicondylar knee replacement, also known as unicompartmental or partial knee replacement, is a procedure to replace a portion of the damaged knee joint with a prosthetic implant to relieve pain and improve function of the knee joint.
Muscle-sparing knee replacement, also known as quadriceps-sparing knee replacement, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that introduces knee implants through a smaller incision than thattypically seen in traditional knee replacement, thus preventinginjury to the quadriceps muscle and tendon.
Unicompartmental knee replacement or unicondylar knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgery in which only the damaged compartment of the knee is replaced with an implant.
A total knee replacement surgery involves replacing the damaged surfaces of the articulating bones with artificial implants to relieve pain and restore function in the knee that is damaged by arthritis or an injury.
