Greetings, and welcome to my website! My name is David Padden M.D., a Johns Hopkins fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in total and partial joint replacement of the hip and knee. I am one of the original pioneers of robotic assisted total hip replacement surgery in the United States, having performed over five hundred of these procedures at present, and one of the top five surgeons in the world with experience in utilizing this technology for total hip replacement. I am one of only a few consulting instructors for Stryker Corp. in the use of these applications for hips and knees: teaching, training and certifying surgeons across the world in the performance of robotic-assisted total hip, partial knee replacement, and in the future total knee replacement. My specialty services include state of the art muscle-sparing (no muscles cut) anterior-lateral robotic total hip replacement surgery, computer navigated total knee replacement, robotic partial (unicondylar, bicondylar, patellofemoral) knee replacement, complex revision (re-do) joint replacement (hip and knee), and arthroscopic surgery of the knee. My other specialty interests lie in the treatment of both avascular necrosis (osteonecrosis) of the hip and knee as well as dysplastic hips (developmental dysplasia of the hip). Furthermore, I am one of only a few surgeons in South Florida performing complex revisions of both the hip and knee joint. I cater to all patients, and perform a large volume of cases on international patients. In addition, I am always available to provide international consultations when contacted. I hope this website is helpful in keeping both current and future patients informed and updated about the particular problems I am truly passionate about treating. I assure you I am a true leader and current trendsetter in arthritis and reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee, and dedicated to utilizing the most cutting-edge options available for the treatment of their particular disorder. If you are interested in a surgeon with a tremendous passion for performing robotic assisted surgery, than please don’t hesitate to call for an appointment/consultation. I look forward to seeing you in the future!!!
