If you or your child sustain an injury during exercise, sports participation, or any type of physical activity, you may be advised to see a sports medicine trained doctor for treatment. A sports medicine trained doctor has specialized training in both the treatment and prevention of sports-
While many women strive for the finish line with nutrition and exercise, there is another competitor: good posture. As the fashion industry seeks to improve our appearance with sportswear, the battle exists between what looks good and what is truly reinforcing our hard efforts to sustain good posture. Research shows we spend upwards of 5,000 repetitions of forward bending a day. Whether we are bending over to brush our teeth, tie our shoes or do the infamous leaning over a cellphone or….
Joint replacement is indicated for patients who are experiencing intolerable pain and problems with daily functioning. In other words, they have end-
The facet joints in the spine can be a source of chronic pain in 15 percent to 45 percent of patients. The diagnosis is made, but the options are either injecting intra-
Technology is rapidly changing in all aspects of our lives. This evolution can easily be seen in the automotive and manufacturing industries, where robotic technology has revolutionized the ability to precisely perform repetitive tasks, thus achieving consistent results and minimizing errors. Likewise, installing countertops in a kitchen is now done with sophisticated laser measuring devices, ensuring a precise fit down to tenths of a millimeter. Healthcare is also undergoing a similar transition to embrace….

An expert in minimally invasive hip and knee replacement surgery, Dr. Denehy earned his medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in 2012. He went on to complete his postgraduate residency training in orthopedic surgery at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. He concluded his training with a hip and knee adult reconstruction fellowship at the University of Louisville. He is board eligible by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, and International Congress on Joint Reconstruction.

Robotic technology was initially introduced into orthopedics in the late 1980s but had limited adoption due its cumbersome nature, increased operative times and technical limitations of the systems. In 2000, the FDA approved the da Vinci™ robot, an intuitive surgical robot used for laparoscopic surgeries. Since then, it has revolutionized the way surgeons in other fields of medicine (general, urologic, gynecologic) perform surgeries. For example, in just over 10 years, prostatectomies performed in this country rose from 1 percent done robotically to 89 percent done robotically. The success in other fields has helped the technology in orthopedics improve in efficiency, adaptability and cost reduction. The Mako™ robot was built to help orthopedic surgeons increase their precision and accuracy during surgery.
