DR. MITTAL’S BACKGROUND & EXPERTISE
Dr. Yogesh Mittal is committed to excellence by pledging to provide the highest quality orthopaedic care possible. He was instrumental in the adoption of the Mako Robotic System for partial and total knee replacements and Mako total hip replacements. He is constantly advocating for innovations in robotics and artificial intelligence to provide you with the best possible surgical outcome. His abilities with computer navigation software and the Mako Robotic System allow for a truly customized hip or knee prosthesis to fit you in terms of sizing, alignment, leg length, center of rotation and ligament balancing. Along with the treatment of immediate or chronic problems, Dr. Mittal is heavily involved in the advancements of robotics through research & development. He is a prominent figure in the creation of artificial intelligence algorithms in hip & knee surgery and is the foremost authority in robotics in arthroplasty, conducting research projects and analyzing clinical data. Dr. Mittal routinely teaches & proctors physicians, lecturing both nationally and internationally.
Dr. Mittal founded the Institute for Regenerative Medicine and Joint Research in 2013 to explore less invasive procedures. He works with pre-eminent scientists to create new effective and innovative protocols which help his patients via stem cell therapies. Stem cell therapies have given numerous patients significant relief of their orthopaedic issues through a non-surgical approach.
He strives to integrate the doctrine of prevention in all of his treatment plans as a way to alleviate orthopaedic conditions. However, when surgery is warranted you can rest assured the surgical plan will be tailored to your specific issue.

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some frequently asked questions. Please feel free to reach out if you have any more!
Recent reports in the medical literature suggest that people who have had a total joint replacement are at slightly increased risk of developing an infection in their joint when an infection occurs elsewhere in the body. For example, an abscessed tooth, bladder infection, pneumonia, or others might result in bacteria being released into the bloodstream which could infect your total joint, long after the surgical procedure took place.
This is extremely unlikely and is certainly no cause for alarm, but the problem has been reported more frequently as more total joint procedures are done in the general population. Following the latest protocols, Dr. Mittal’s patients have a 10x less chance of infection as compared to the national average. Nevertheless, we recommend that you should take antibiotics anytime you have an infection, or have an increased risk of infection, such as when you undergo any dental procedure, sigmoidoscopy, any infection, tonsillectomy, genitourinary instrumentation, bronchoscopy, liver biopsy, or barium enema. We do not recommend antibiotics when you have a simple cut or bruise; but if there is any question, we simply ask that you bring this to the attention of the doctor involved in caring for you at that time.
Always take the amount of medicine your doctor prescribes. DO NOT take more, less, or stop this medicine without first checking with your doctor. Obtain refills (when indicated) before running out.

Other side effects or long-term effects may occur in some patients. REPORT any unusual responses to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
A Physician Assistant is a highly-trained, licensed individual who assists the physician in both the office and the operating room. A Physician Assistant works under the supervision of a physician to examine, diagnose and treat patients; becoming an important link between the patient and the doctor.
A Nurse Practitioner is a Master’s prepared, highly-trained, licensed individual who assists the physician to provide quality healthcare in the office and operating room. The U.S. Congress, Office of Technology Assessment says, “Nurse Practitioners provide care whose quality is equivalent to that of care provided by physicians.”
The decision whether to have hip replacement surgery should be a cooperative one between you, your family, your primary care doctor, and your orthopaedic surgeon. The process of making this decision typically begins with a referral by your doctor to an orthopaedic surgeon for an initial evaluation. While most patients who undergo hip replacement surgery are age 60 to 80, orthopaedic surgeons evaluate patients individually. Recommendations for surgery are based on the extent of your pain, disability, and general health status, not solely on age (as age varies). You may benefit from hip replacement surgery if:
The decision whether to have total knee replacement surgery should be a cooperative one between you, your family, your family physician, and your orthopaedic surgeon. Your physician may refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon for a thorough evaluation to determine if you could benefit from this surgery.
Reasons that you may benefit from total knee replacement commonly include:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated sample of your own blood composed primarily of high levels of platelets. Platelets are a critical component of the wound healing process. Importantly, platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair. Harvest PRP delivers a concentration of platelets and growth factors that is roughly 4-6 times greater than found in whole blood.
The use of PRP varies from procedure to procedure. PRP is generally applied topically to the repair site. It is often applied to bone and soft tissue sites to accelerate tissue regeneration. Clinical studies have shown that application of PRP can help reduce bleeding, minimize pain, reduce infection rates, and optimize overall healing.
