Dr. Brannen is a fellowship-trained joint replacement surgeon who specialized in minimally invasive, muscle-sparing, robotic hip and knee replacement surgery. His goal is to alleviate pain and restore function to each individual patient.
Robotic hip surgery is an advancement to a traditional hip surgery by using a robotic system to perform the surgery. The robotic system functions as an extension of the surgeon’s hands and eyes.
Hip replacements often fail due to poor orientation of the implants or components. Complications include impingement, loosening, squeaking and dislocation.
Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with artificial parts.
I went to Dr. Brannen two years after a botched knee replacement by another surgeon left me in pain and with a knee that was not stable. Dr. Brannen replaced one part that was too small, cleaned up the arthritis that was forming, and left me with a functional, stable knee.
I had 2 total knee replacements done in a two month spread by Dr. Brannen and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. My recovery after physical therapy was rather quick and minimally painful. Dr. Brannen is very professional and ready to answer any questions you may have.
Dr. Brannen is truly amazing!! His bedside manner is awesome, he cares about his patients and it shows. My partial knee replacement is coming along great. I took my first steps today while he held my hand. Unbelievable!!!
