Adult Reconstructive Surgery Minimally Invasive Hip and Knee Replacement

Elvis Grandic, MDDr. Elvis Grandic is board certified fellowship trained specialist in minimal invasive hip and knee replacement. With a focus on soft tissue preservation and rapid recovery, he provides the latest state of the art hip and knee reconstructive surgery in the region. These include total and resurfacing hip replacements, total and partial knee replacements, robotic hip and knee replacement, and complex revision of total joint procedures.

Dr Grandic has advanced training in both hip and knee replacement and complex reconstructive revision surgery.  He has been formally trained at the New England Baptist Hospital, part of the Harvard Caregroup in Boston, Massachusetts. There he completed the prestigious Otto E. AuFranc Fellowship in Adult Reconstructive Surgery.

Dr.Grandic is helping develop and teach a new hybrid technique of minimally invasive total hip replacement, known as the superior approach or “SuperPATH”. This technique has potential advantages over other minimally invasive techniques, namely the anterior, lateral, and posterior. Using this technique, no muscles or tendons are damaged, the hip is never dislocated in surgery and the tools & implants are assembled inside of the body. This results in no post-operative limitations and many patients are able to be discharged from the hospital within 48 hours. Additionally, unlike most other minimally invasive techniques, the SuperPATH approach is an adjustable approach, allowing for appropriate surgical implantation regardless of most deformities.

Whether it’s non-operative management, tissue-sparing joint replacement or complex revision surgery, Dr.Grandic’s goal is to combine cutting-edge technology & techniques to provide patients the best orthopaedic care possible. He aims to meet patients’ individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle.
