Performing robotic hip and knee replacement, Dr. Petrow's goal is improving patients' quality of life through surgery of the hip and knee. Dr. Petrow has been offering anterior hip replacement since 2008, and performed the first robotic anterior hip replacement in Southern Arizona.
Mako robotic-arm assisted technology helps surgeons provide patients with a personalized surgical experience. A 3D model of your hip or knee will be used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your joint replacement surgery.
Am I Candidate for
You may be a candidate if you have:
I have had both hips done, the first was with the traditional, posterior technique and this latest one with Dr. Petrow was with the newer, anterior approach. I can think of no reason anyone would choose the traditional over the anterior approach. I had less time needed to recover (went home the next day) and less pain with this technique.
Less Pain with Anterior Hip
For 3 years I couldn’t walk without pain. On Aug. 14, I had a hip replacement. In 3 days I was doing all my work at home, taking care of house and husband. On Dec. 4, I had a second one done. After 2 days, I was home doing all my house work again. No pain. My special thanks to Dr. Petrow and his staff.
Hip Replacement Success
I had my movement and life given back to me by a great and caring doctor. My knee was so damaged, and Dr. Ed Petrow and his assistant Zimmerman did something most doctors forget. They listened. He replaced my replacement knee and now I can walk without pain or cane. Thank you and God bless.
Given Back Life – Thank You Dr. Petrow
After many months of terrible pain, Dr. Petrow replaced my right hip. The procedure was high tech and the aftercare was superb. Laura Zimmerman, NP was very caring and professional. I highly recommend this office for your care.
