ANDREW B. WICKLINE MD FAAOS FAAHKS

Here is a list of what I think sets us apart from the rest:
  • Mako Robotic partial knee replacement – 1 of only 5 sites that offer this in upstate NY.
  • Most experience with direct anterior hip replacement in all of upstate New York. I perform 600-700 surgeries per year.
  • Ten years of computer navigation experience. The largest number of computer navigated total knees in NYS and one of the largest in the nation.
  • Number 3/1800 surgeons in state for total joint volume
  • First adopter of Stryker Triathlon Knee-lowest revised total knee system in multiple joint registries worldwide. Also designed to accommodate for size variances in men and women’s knees.
  • Dedicated Anesthesia staff providing superior spinal and general anesthesia.
  • Pre-emptive pain management protocol that starts before surgery.
  • Orthopedic dedicated OR rooms and staff which decreases perioperative complications.
  • Orthopedic total joint dedicated 20 bed unit with orthopedic trained nursing and physical therapy staff. (97% with excellent patient satisfaction)
  • One of first hospitals in country to incorporate Blood conserving tranexamic acid – now becoming a national trend.
  • Early adoption of sleep apnea evaluation protocol to decrease risk of perioperative mortality-likely to become the national standard within next three years.
  • Early adoption of standardized infection prevention protocol with total joints. (skin decolonization, MRSA screening, antibiotic dosing, antimicrobial dressings)
  • Same day and overnight hip replacement
  • No hip precautions. Earlier return to work and normal activities.
