About Us

Welcome to University Hip and Knee Orthopaedic Specialists LLC. As a leader in the field of orthopaedics, and having an established practice in central New Jersey for over twenty years, I look forward to continuing to deliver innovation based on experience. I endeavor to meet my patients’ needs through precise evaluation and treatment designed to restore an active, pain-free lifestyle. I develop a partnership with my patients whereby they gain an understanding of their individual diagnosis, the treatment options most applicable to their unique situation, and the recovery process and expectations. We will consider both surgical and non-surgical alternatives. I may initially recommend an exercise program, medication, or joint injection. When surgery provides the best solution, my expertise includes hip and knee replacement, partial (ligament sparing) knee replacement, (bone conserving)hip resurfacing, minimally invasive surgery, computer navigated surgery, joint re-alignment osteotomy, and knee arthroscopy. I have had the opportunity to participate in many advances in the treatment of hip and knee arthritis. I have performed partial (unicompartmental)knee replacement since 1984. I was chosen as a Principal Investigator in an FDA study evaluating one of the first successful cementless hip replacements, and again served as a Principal Investigator in a study which evaluated joint lubrication injections. I was amongst the initial group of orthopaedic surgeons to receive FDA approval to perform hip resurfacing in 2006. My involvement in orthopaedic education has been another priority. I have lectured about innovative joint replacement and reconstructive surgical techniques at national and international conferences. Visiting orthopaedic surgeons have traveled from abroad (including Italy, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, and South Africa) to observe surgery or participate in our surgical skills labs. I remain dedicated to teaching orthopaedic surgery residents,medical students, physician assistant students, nursing students, and hospital nursing staff. The relationships that I develop with my patients and their successful treatment outcomes are the most rewarding aspect of my practice, and my highest priority. The knowledgeable and caring staff of University Hip and Knee Orthopaedic Specialists LLC is ready to assist you. Please visit www.drpolakoff.com for additional information. We look forward to meeting you!
