“Had total knee replacement on both knees in Feb 2015. I got my life back. Before surgery I could hardly walk. Now I’m going to climb Half Dome spring of 2016. Great doctor and staff. Thanks guys.”
“I had both my knees replaced by Dr. Chaudhary in September & November of 2007. It is now 2014 and I have not had one problem with my knees… I have NEVER had anything go wrong to this day. I always tell people what a great job Dr. Chaudhary did.”
“Can’t say enough good things about Dr Chaudhary. He gave me a new hip and two new knees. Proof is in the pudding! Walking pain free, no limp, no problems what so ever. I highly recommend him to anyone!”
Total Hip Replacement
A number of diseases and conditions can damage the cartilage. Total hip replacement surgery is an option to relieve severe arthritis pain that limits your daily activities. A joint replacement is usually only recommended once more conservative treatment options, such as anti-inflammatory medications or physical therapy, have failed to relieve the symptoms.
Unicondylar Knee Replacement
Unicondylar Knee Replacement simply means that only a part of the knee joint is replaced. This operation requires a smaller incision than that of a total knee replacement.
Total Knee Replacement
A total knee replacement, also called a “total knee arthroplasty,” involves the removal of worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint and replacement with ceramic, plastic, or metal components. Dr. Chaudhary uses gender-specific knee components to ensure the best fit and most comfort.
