Pratik P. Desai, MD, MS, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic Orlando Health. He specializes in hip and knee reconstruction and arthroplasty, and he has a special interest in minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery of the hip and knee.
Patients who suffer from arthritis, severe fractures or failed joint replacement surgery will benefit from the skill and experience of Dr. Desai and his team. He comprehensively evaluates each patient’s condition to determine if total joint replacement of the hip or knee is necessary. If so, a detailed, personalized treatment plan is developed. When possible, Dr. Desai choses a minimally invasive surgical approach because patients typically experience less pain and have a faster recovery.
As appropriate for the patient, Dr. Desai offers anterior hip replacement, a procedure that makes it possible to leave muscles intact. This procedure also often leads to less pain and a faster recovery, so patients can return to their life more quickly.
Arthroscopic and Reconstructive Surgery
Dr. Desai offers the advanced surgical techniques and technology patients need to achieve the best outcomes, including arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery. He and his team of orthopedic surgery specialists are committed to restoring each patient’s health and mobility, so they can return to an active, pain-free lifestyle.
Less invasive than traditional surgery, arthroscopic surgery involves inserting tiny surgical instruments through small incisions to repair or remove damaged areas of the hip or knee, resulting in less pain and faster healing.
Reconstructive surgery may be an effective treatment for repairing the damaged joint and restoring function for those suffering from severe forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, and experiencing pain, joint deformity and mobility issues.
Mako® Robotic Arm Assisted Surgery
Dr. Desai uses Mako® Robotic Arm Assisted Surgery for both total hip arthroplasty and partial knee resurfacing. This advanced technology is a breakthrough solution for those suffering with debilitating pain of the knee or hip. Powered by a surgeon-controlled RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopaedic System and producing implant designs, Mako® Robotic Arm Assisted Surgery enables Dr. Desai to treat patient-specific knee and hip conditions with consistently reproducible plans to help return them to wellness.
