Carlos J. Lavernia, MD
Hip, Knee and Shoulder Replacement
Hip, Knee, & Shoulder Replacement
Renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Carlos J. Lavernia in Coral Gables, Florida utilizes the most advanced surgical methods available for hip, knee, and shoulder joint replacement, including minimally invasive procedures whenever possible.
Robotic-assisted hip and knee replacement surgery uses 3D imaging that enables Dr. Lavernia to plan the procedure around your unique anatomy which, in turn, helps ensure the correct sizing and positioning of your prosthesis.
Hip & Knee Revision
Often, revision surgery only involves the replacement of a few components of the prosthesis. However, if the whole prosthesis needs to be removed or replaced, the bone around the knee or hip may need to be rebuilt with a bone graft or augments (metal pieces).
