Dr. Marc Hammerman is a board certified Orthopaedic Surgeon, who is Fellowship trained in Sports Medicine Surgery. He has a specific training in the management of complex sports/athletic trauma injuries involving major ligamentous reconstruction of the knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle which required precise reconstruction to minimize instability and post-traumatic arthritis. The minimal invasive techniques used by Dr. Hammerman combined with a well-coordinated multidisciplinary physical therapy program allow for earlier return to functional and athletic activities. In addition, Dr. Hammerman also performs minimally invasive Total Knee Replacement utilizing patient specific computer generated 3-D instrumentation and modeling to allow for precise positioning of the implants with minimal loss of bone. Dr. Hammerman is also trained in the utilization of the MAKO robotic Total Knee and Total Hip Replacement System. Minimally invasive total hip replacement muscle sparing surgery allows for same day ambulation, and with coordinated physical therapy, next day discharge.
