Arthroplasty services in our unit are nearly comprehensive and unique as they include different types of traditional techniques and recent such as minimally invasive and computer-assisted surgery. The scope of our services is joint replacement: traditional techniques in arthroplasty, total knee arthroplasty, unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, hip hemiarthroplasty, resurfacing hip arthroplasty, total
hip arthroplasty (cemented, hybrid, uncemented, metal on metal and ceramic on ceramic), shoulder hemiarthroplasty and total shoulder arthroplasty.
We also target minimally invasive surgery (MIS), mini lateral approach for the hip, MIS total knee arthroplasty, navigation and computer-assisted surgery. The outcome assessment for our patients includes arthroplasty sheets (hip and knee scores) and arthroplasty register.

The operating rooms are dedicated with tele medicine unit  with integrated live surgery camera system that can connect to 5 sources (Navigation, Arthroscopy, C-arm, operative field & X-ray monitor with digital templating).
We have international collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA (1st Arthroplasty Conference 2008, 3rd Arthroplasty Conference 2010, 4th Arthroplasty Conference 2011); UK (review course 2009, review course 2010 Braddock visit). We also share consultation with colleagues at Cleveland clinic, Ohio, USA; San Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Canada  & Hospitals of the University of Leeds, UK.

The department staff members are pioneers in patient-specic cutting guides for total knee replacement (TKR); navigation for TKR in the Middle East, total hip arthroplasty by computer-assisted surgery in the Arab world, community arthroplasty register in the Arab world. They provide primary and revision of total hip and knee replacement as well as unicompartmental, knee and hip resurfacing.

Patient specific instruments (PSI) for total knee replacement:
The open platform technique

Patient specific instruments (PSI) for TKR is now used almost routinely in our center by Prof Mahmoud A Hafez. The technique used is called an open platform PSI, as it can be used for any TKR implants. The personal experience of Dr Hafez indicate that this PSI technique can make a revolution in the management of TKR in the Middle East. In addition


 2 Pieces for PSI instead of more than 100 pieces of conventional instruments
