Board certified, and fellowship trained in adult total joint reconstruction, Dr. Osuji also holds additional training in partial knee replacement and robotic surgery.
Dr. Osuji’s practice includes general orthopedics and joint replacement, including direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty, robotic total hip arthroplasty, and hip arthroscopy. Surgical procedures for the knee include knee arthroscopy, total knee replacement and unicompartmental knee replacement, also known as partial knee replacement.
