Dr. French has returned to provide these progressive services to the Inland Empire residents, helping them avoid the need to travel out of the area for these specialized services.
Dr. French is enthusiastic about serving the community where he completed his residency training. He strives to provide the most appropriate and personally tailored treatment to arthritis and general orthopaedic patients.
Dr. French is fellowship trained in performing hip and knee replacements after completing a Lower Extremity Reconstruction Fellowship at The Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, CA. His practice has a focus on computer aligned total knee replacement, robotic assisted hip and knee replacement and cutting edge minimally invasive hip replacement surgery, as well as cartilage preservation techniques.
Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty, is a surgical treatment for painful arthritis of the knee in which the worn-out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with an artificial prosthesis.
Minimally invasive total hip replacement is a surgical procedure performed through one or two small incisions rather than the single long incision of 10–12-inches as in the traditional approach.
Computer navigation provides your surgeon with real-time 3-D images of your mapped knee and the surgical instruments during surgery. The data for the images is provided by infrared sensors fixed to the bones of the knee and surgical instruments.
Robotic-assisted joint replacement is an innovative alternative to the conventional surgical procedure to treat degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis. It is performed using robotic-arm technology that allows your surgeon to precisely perform the surgery through small incisions.
Despite advances in managing degenerative arthritis of the ankle joint, there are few optimal treatment options for young patients with symptomatic, end-stage degenerative disease. Popular surgical options consist of traditional arthrodesis and, more recently, arthroplasty. Additional techniques, including arthroscopic debridement and joint distraction, have gained little traction.Read More
