Physicians: Instructional Courses

Anterior Hip Replacement Surgeries: Dr. Kreuzer conducts cadaver courses for the Direct Anterior Approach for hip replacement at regular intervals at Anatomy Labs for surgeons and sales force from all over the United States. Since he has performed over 1,500 minimally invasive direct anterior hip replacements, he is not only a leader in the field but shares his knowledge with surgeons from Houston and all over the country. More than 100 resurfacing surgeries have been performed to date (May 2011) as well.

Anterior Hip in Mahwah: Dr. Kreuzer is one of the main faculty members for the Direct Anterior Approach to the hip cadaver course in Mahwah, New Jersey (Stryker).

Total Knee Replacement: Dr Kreuzer has performed more than 750 total knee replacement surgeries as of May 2011 using computer navigation for precision measurements instead of manual estimations. He also uses a force sensory plate (synvasive) to further improve the alignment and balancing required for successful outcome of his patients. This new technique is revolutionary and may change how knee replacements are done in the future.

Partial Knee Replacement: He has performed more than 260 partial (Unicondylar) knee replacements or UKAs to date (May 2011) with advanced computer guided techniques, of which more than 175 were also robotically assisted (Mako) precision techniques. In these Total and Partial replacements patients benefit from fewer technical uncertainties and better predictability (research papers are being written about this at our organization currently). Therefore he shares this technique by teaching fellow surgeons and sales teams across the country at regular intervals.
