Joint Reconstruction: University of Pennsylvania
Dr. Frederick F. Buechel, Jr. MD is an internationally renowned expert Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee replacement surgeon and a pioneer in Outpatient Robotic-Arm Assisted Partial Knee Replacement.
He is one of the most experienced international robotic partial knee surgeon in the world and he has performed over 1000 robotic knee procedures in the USA, Asia, Australia and Europe.
Dr. Buechel uses the MAKO Robotic System combined with his minimally invasive techniques to help people with painful knee arthritis get back to their active lifestyles rapidly, and with less discomfort than traditional partial and total knee replacement. Dr. Buechel is an expert in choosing the right patients for this technology, the pre-operative and intra-operative computer planning, and the technical execution of the procedure from start to finish using the system to achieve the most precise joint reconstruction for each individual’s knee.
Dr. Buechel has a vast experience successfully operating on patients from all over the world with the MAKO robotic system as the primary surgeon and he is a surgeon proctor for new surgeons. His experience allows him to perform this revolutionary procedure on simple cases and highly advanced difficult cases with superior precision and great patient satisfaction.
Dr. Buechel was the first orthopaedic surgeon to provide advanced MAKO robotic surgery training courses for surgeons in the United States and he has provided surgical support and launch services to robotic orthopaedic programs in many countries including the USA, Australia, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam and Hong Kong. Dr. Buechel lectures on Mako Robotic Partial Knee & Total Knee replacement and Total Hip around the world including India, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia and the USA.
Active young patients that are living with arthritic pain from a prior knee injury or failed meniscus surgery, and middle-aged and older patients struggling with the effects of time and wear on their knee joint surfaces can benefit from Dr. Buechel's international experience with this robotic technology.
Dr. Buechel is American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery Certified and is Fellowship trained in Adult Joint Reconstruction from the University of Pennsylvania. He is the past Chairman of the Department of Surgery and Chief of Orthopaedics at Physicians Regional Healthcare System, and past Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at the NCH Healthcare System, both in Naples, Florida USA where he practiced for the last 14 years.
Dr. Buechel's Robotic Joint Center has partnered with Prestige Orthopaedics in New York, and Taipei Postal Hospital in Taiwan, to provide Minimally Invasive outpatient Robotic-Arm Assisted Partial Knee Arthroplasty, Total Knee Replacement, and Total Hip Replacement for patients around the world with Knee & Hip arthritis pain.
Dr. Buechel welcomes patients from all over the world for consultations regarding their knee arthritis, and he can provide robotic surgical services for patients able to travel to New York City and Taiwan. Kindly contact Dr. Buechel through our website for further information regarding consultations and scheduling. www.RoboticJointCenter.com
Potential patients can send their information for Dr. Buechel to review for an initial phone consultation. If the history and imaging reviewed supports the diagnosis for the procedure, Dr. Buechel will discuss this with the patient and an office exam is scheduled to confirm the diagnosis with the surgery to follow, generally the next day. Patients and their families are encouraged to stay in the area for outpatient therapy and evaluation prior to returning home.
