Dr Robert Kayal MD NJ Orthopaedic Surgeon
Description: Robert A. Kayal, MD
is the regional pioneer of the partial knee and
the patellofemoral knee replacement technology and has been performing
these procedures for years. In fact, Dr. Kayal has performed more of these
surgeries than any other Orthopaedic Surgeon in the region.
to introducing this technology to the medical community years ago, he
also introduced the concept of "outpatient joint replacement surgery"
to the local community and continues to perform outpatient
unicompartmental and patellofemoral knee replacements on a routine
basis. Dr. Kayal possesses the distinction of performing the first ever
minimally invasive partial knee replacement and patellofemoral knee
joint replacement at the Valley Hospital and at Patient Care
Associates, LLC and performs this procedure at the Hackensack
University Medical Center as well. These surgical procedures
incorporate only a 3 to 4-inch incision as opposed to the typical 8 to
12-inch incision often required for total knee replacement surgery. As
a result, these patients are discharged home the same day of surgery,
endure no cutting of tendons or muscle, recuperate much faster and
experience much less pain than those undergoing total knee replacement
surgery. Furthermore, Dr. Kayal has helped pioneer cartilage
transplantation in the region, performing operations that delay or even
preclude the need for joint replacement surgery.
A. Kayal, MD was trained in the NY-Metropolitan area and has received
AOA Honors. He is a Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and an active
member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, New Jersey
Orthopaedic Society, Orthopaedic Surgeons of New Jersey, Bergen County
Medical Society and the American Medical Association. Dr. Kayal enjoys
privileges at renowned hospitals in Bergen County and serves on the
Medical Staff at both the Valley Hospital and the Hackensack University
Medical Center. Moreover, Dr. Kayal serves as the Director of
Orthopaedic Surgery at Patient Care Associates, LLC, a state-of-the-art
outpatient surgical center, in Englewood, NJ.
