Kevin M. Denehy, M.D.
Hip and Knee Specialist
Dr. Denehy earned his medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in 2012. He went on to complete his postgraduate residency training in orthopedic surgery at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. He concluded his training with a hip and knee adult reconstruction fellowship at the University of Louisville. He is board eligible by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, and International Congress on Joint Reconstruction.
Dr. Denehy is an expert in minimally invasive hip and knee replacement surgery. He utilizes the direct anterior approach for total hip replacement, allowing for a quicker recovery with less muscle damage. Many of his total knee patients are candidates for a quadriceps-sparing (subvastus) approach that allows for a quicker return to function. When indicated, he also uses a cementless knee replacement, which utilizes the latest technology of 3-D printing to create a surface for your own bone to grow into the implant. With this biological bond, there is less risk of loosening from cement break down, which is a possibility with many other implants.
Dr. Denehy has specialized training in cutting-edge hip arthroscopy techniques, including labral repair and treatment of femoroacetabular impingement. An emerging field in orthopedics, hip arthroscopy allows for repair of structures inside the hip joint through very small portals. This has the potential to delay and possibly prevent progression to arthritis and the requisite hip replacement surgery.
Part of Dr. Denehy's fellowship training focused on robotic assisted total knee replacement at one of the first centers in the country to perform the procedures. He has performed over 100 robotic-assisted total replacements. Only 25-30 surgeons across the country have performed similar volume. The robotic assisted knee replacement allows for exact sizing, implant positioning, and ligamentous balancing. This results in less muscle damage and soft tissue release, decreased postoperative pain, and improved postoperative function and patient satisfaction.
Dr. Denehy has also had extensive training in complex hip and knee revision surgery, including infection, instability, and early loosening. He has authored numerous papers, and made presentations national meetings on the latest advancements in orthopedics.
