How to Choose a Hip Surgeon in New York City & Manhattan

Studies have been published that show half of re-do hip replacement surgeries are completely avoidable had the original hip replacement been done better, Therefore, the most important aspect of a hip replacement is choosing the best surgeon suited to perform the procedure. This task is made easier when you know which questions to ask and what to look for. Some important items to consider are the complication rates that your prospective surgeon has, your own specific needs, your willingness to travel, and the skill of your prospective surgeon. Let’s explore some of those options below

1.Search Within the Right Surgical Specialty

It’s important that you seek out a professional who specializes in the type of procedure you require. Because the human body is complex, orthopedic surgeons have specialties that they are proficient in. If you have been referred for a hip replacement surgery, make sure you choose a surgeon who is fellowship-trained in joint replacement surgery, aren’t pursuing someone whose specialty is in hand orthopedic surgery, for example.

2. Are They a High Volume Surgeon?

High volume surgeons perform procedures frequently, allowing them to perfect their approach and give patients the best care possible. The more procedures your specialist has performed, the more refined their technique and the more skilled they are at detecting small abnormalities. While researching their volume, it’s also important to check and see what their success and complication rates are, as well as research what previous patients have to say.

You will also want to research whether or not they have experience with special or high-risk cases. This will ensure they are equipped to handle your needs and any potential complications that may arise.

3. Check The Surgeon’s Credentials

Not all surgeons are created equally. Make sure you’re working with a surgeon that has a good track record of high-quality education, residency and fellowship training, and that they are working with an esteemed hospital. Additionally, if your prospective surgeon routinely receives new and continuing education on the latest techniques and approaches to their chosen specialty, they tend to have higher success rates. It’s important to find a surgeon who is always learning, and even teaching the latest techniques.

4. Research The Surgeon’s Affiliations

Make sure you are doing your due diligence by researching the facility a surgeon works with as well. Dr. Vigdorchik is affiliated with Hospital for Special Surgery, the best hospital in the country for orthopaedic surgery, an esteemed hospital known for giving their patients the best care through quality surgeons and the latest technology. Surgeon websites often mention their certifications and affiliations, which can be confusing to patients. The most important affiliation to consider is the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

5. Does the Surgeon Conduct Research in Their Specialty?

Research is key to ensuring that the surgeon is keeping up-to-date with information within their specialty. It is also an indicator that they are constantly furthering their education and that they are striving to help patients get better outcomes. Medical breakthroughs are accomplished with cutting-edge medical research, with researchers constantly searching for ways to advance their technique and medicine as a whole.

Dr. Vigdorchik is one of the few national experts who specializes in all types of hip surgery, from same-day discharge to hip replacement to hip preservation. He performs research on how to improve customized hip replacement, robotic assistive techniques, and instruction for prospective residents and students on the proper techniques for hip surgery.

6. How Does the Surgeon Support Their Patients Post-Op?

Do they have a good system to offer their patients follow up care, good instructions for recovery, and post-op physical therapy? These are important options to consider. You’ll also want to research their surgical history to see if they have a track record of successful procedures or if they have dissatisfied patients.

Dr. Vigdorchik offers blogs to his patients, with information such as how to reduce hip pain while running and how to prevent injuries for hip replacement patients during winter. These posts are designed to be another aspect of extended patient care and education to help them learn about their condition, recovery, and the prevention of new injuries. Additionally, Dr. Vigdorchik is well known for the time he spends with his patients. This is an important aspect of your care plan, and it’s the best time for you to communicate any new or developing issues or concerns.

This provides his patients with the best treatment options for their condition and lifestyle.

2. Dr. Vigdorchik Uses Robot-Assisted Technology

Traditional hip and knee replacement procedures have been around since the 1960s. The technology involved in them in this time has not deviated much. Robot-assisted technology allows surgeons to provide lasting hip and knee replacements with lower complication rates. This procedure involves the evaluation of the patient with a 3D model of their anatomy. The surgery is then executed using a robotic arm, designed to guide the surgeon. Dr. Vigdorchik is in control of the surgery at all times, with this device only guiding the procedure. This allows for a higher success rate overall.
