"In December 2011 had robotic assisted surgery for a right total hip replacement. After surgery the hip was painful and did not feel right. I had physical therapy multiple times during the next 3-1/2 years, but was still in pain all the time. In June 2015 I met with Dr. Derek Jenkins who took the time and listened to the symptoms I was having. He had an idea of what was wrong and causing the problem. After trying injections, which improved the situation somewhat, Dr. Jenkins said the only way to truly fix the problem would be revision surgery of the hip. I had the surgery in June 2016 and I am now pain free and I am looking forward to a complete recovery with physical therapy.

"If you are seeking an Orthopedic Surgeon I highly recommend Or. Derek Jenkins. "

"My experience with Dr. Jenkins far exceeds what I expected. He took the time needed to evaluate my problem. He was thorough, making sure he covered all the basesb before he performed my hip surgery and made sure I understood the risks involved. I came through the surgery with no problems and I owe it all to Dr. Derek Jenkins. He is a great surgeon and I will certainly recommend him to everyone I know."

"Hi my name is Marcia and I am 78 years old. In the late August 2015, I had Dr. Jenkins do a complete right knee replacement. I was back to cooking-cleaning­taxi mom and all those things we just love to doing, in 4 weeks! Within 10 days I was walking around the house with NO assistance, and I had to tackle 14 stairs to get to the bathroom and go to bed. Even doing things I was unable to master prior to surgery. In late May, 2016, Dr. Jenkins did a full replacement on the left knee. I suggest you don't wait- do it today! I had suffered since my late forties, but had 4 elderly family members ill over the years and a special need child at home. I felt they came first. My time came and I was referred to Doctor Jenkins; He arranged for therapy to be done 3 times a week at home and only 2 days in the hospital-which was Miriam. They were great and the nurses were very much on top of everything. Dr. Jenkins did my first surgery in 2015 at 7AM and I was shocked when he came in my room at 9:20 PM to check on me. That to me is over and beyond which we don't see too much of today and a long day even for a doctor. I found the secret to a successful surgery is doing the exercises they gave me at least 2 - 3 times a day. Doctor rules must be followed with an excellent doctor-YES I highly recommend DR JENKINS!!!

"Don't delay--do it today! I wish I hadn't! You'll be asking yourself why you waited. Do it and enjoy your life! "

"I am feeling great after receiving an injection. I surely recommend Dr. Derek Jenkins to anyone who has knee pain. The experience is great, every one was very helpful. Thanks Dr. Derek Jenkins for your wishes. "

"Dr. Jenkins surgery totally alleviated my knee pain except for the initial post op pain and a few weeks of physical therapy and discomfort. I've returned to my normal activities of daily living. TKR is definitely the way to go. " — John

Would recommend Dr. Jenkins to family and friends. "

"Last year I had hip replacement at New England Baptist in Boston. One month ago, Dr. Jenkins replaced my other hip in Providence.

I'm grateful I found Dr. Jenkins in my own back yard. "

He took the time to explain everything thoroughly and his expertise is outstanding yet he has the warmest bedside manner! We are extremely pleased and have and would recommend him highly. - The Augers"

"Operation and rehab have gone very well. Pain almost nil from the very beginning. I can walk unassisted 5 weeks after the operation. I started driving 3 days ago (no gear shifting) and will begin walking on the beach again immediately. Water aerobics will begin again next week.

"Upon discovering that my total knee replacement had to be redone, I was very skeptical about a revision surgery. A high recommendation from my orthopedic doctor in Maine, led me to Dr. Jenkins. From the beginning, I knew I had made the right choice. Dr. Jenkins was professional but very personable and very confident that he could help me. His goal was to get me back to my active lifestyle. After a very long revision surgery, I have found this recovery to be so much easier and have had less pain than with the original surgery. A month post-op, I am almost pain free and walking with very little assistance. I would give Dr. Jenkins my highest recommendation. "

"The experience of TKR was so much better and more than I can say. The people were kind and courteous. The only thing you have to be afraid of is losing the continuous pain from your knee to your back. "

"At first it was very frustrating but the wait was worth it."

"I was very apprehensive and scared at my age to have this knee surgery done. But the pain was unbearable. Dr. Jenkins assured me that he could help – and he sure did. I feel like a different person. I can walk without the pain again. He did a terrific job. I would highly recommend him for knee surgery."

"Dr. Jenkins (is) very personable and trusting. First surgeon in a long while that did not push operating or fixing by surgery. Wants me to heal the right way naturally by losing weight. I would recommend Dr. Jenkins to other patients. (Very good bedside manner)"

"Everything was great!"

"Was given a shot - instant gratification"

"Excellent experience and very good results"

"The reason I chose Dr. Jenkins for my knee surgery was that he is a surgeon that is good at what he does. Regardless of if it is knee or hip surgery. He stands behind his word, and when he talks to you he looks you right in the face and tells you what to expect. In my case, he gave me confidence in his words. Which gave me strength to get through this difficult time. In my eyes he is "the man".

"Having hip replacement surgery was the best decision I ever made. Trusting Dr. Jenkins to perform the surgery was the icing on the cake. Yes, Dr. Jenkins has the requisite skill, knowledge, and superb orthopedic acumen but he is also a kind man who never forgets to bring his heart into the OR, along with his mind. My only wish, I hadn't waited so long to have my hip replaced - or to "Bring my life back to life. I will be forever grateful." — Joanne

Hip and Knee Replacement Patients are Getting Younger

Asjoint replacement surgeryhas evolved, so have the patients. Namely, the average age of those having hip or knee replacement surgery is decreasing. For hips, the average age is now 65 and knees is 66.

According toa studyfrom the American Academy of Orthopedic surgeons, not only is the average age of joint replacement patients younger, but there is also a projected increase in the number of surgeries that will be performed before the end of the decade.

Derek R. Jenkins, MD | University Orthopedics (4)

What was once thought of as a last resort for older patients has now transitioned to a way for active individuals witharthritisto continue their healthy lifestyle well into the future.

Non-surgical options for hip and knee arthritis

It is best practice to offer patients nonoperative treatments first. That includes activity modification, gait aides, nonsteroidal medications, and injections, among others. It is only when these treatments fail that I offerjoint replacement surgeryas an option. The goal of that surgery is to relieve pain and improve joint function for our patients.

New joint replacement technologies and techniques to benefit younger patients

Everyone’s bones are a little bit different. There are severalnew approachesto performing joint replacement surgery, with a focus on less invasive procedures. I work to customize each surgery to the individual patient.

  • Direct anterior approach for hip replacement.My approach to hip replacement has been molded through special fellowship training in both young adult hip surgery and the direct anterior approach (DAA). I’ve been performing hip replacements through this approach for over 10 years now, with experience performing thousands of surgeries. The DAA and other minimally invasive approaches may be of particular benefit in the younger active patient. These procedures allow surgeons to work through natural soft tissue planes without cutting muscles or tendons. This helps to prevent damage to the well-functioning anatomy of patients. The DAA is a more technically complex surgery and can take longer in the operating room, but results in a quicker recovery and less risk of hip dislocation. While other approaches to minimally invasive surgery can have excellent results, I have found the DAA works best.
  • Image-guided surgery.Some hip surgeons, including myself, use a technology known as “fluoroscopic image guidance” during surgery. This image guidance offers the surgeon greater quality control to align the implant, so it fits more precisely to a patient’s unique anatomy. Precision in placing implants allows me to forgo any hip precautions, so my hip patients do not have to worry about not crossing their legs or elevated toilet seats to prevent hip dislocation.
  • Cementless technology for hip and knee replacements.The implants we use are complex biomedical engineering devices. Bone cement, or a type of grout, was originally used to keep implants in place during joint replacement surgery. Unfortunately, that bond can break down over time. Years ago, “cementless technology” was developed for hip replacements and has now become the standard of care. Development of uncemented total knee replacements took more time to perfect, but new technologies such as 3-D printing of titanium and the development of porous tantalum have revolutionized uncemented knee replacement designs. The potential benefit of cementless fixation is a longer-lasting, more durable bond between implants and our patient’s bone. We have seen excellent results with certain uncemented designs, and my partners and I are now using some of these implants in appropriate patients, most commonly younger patients where long-term fixation will be of greatest benefit.

Do younger joint replacement patients have shorter hospital stays?

It’s important to note that most of our patients still spend the night in the hospital and leave the next day. Younger, healthy patients can have shorter hospital stays after hip or knee replacements. In fact, in some instances, younger healthy patients with good home support can even leave from the recovery room and go home on the day of surgery.

My partners and I were the first in Rhode Island to offeroutpatient total joint surgery, without the need for an overnight hospital stay. Thisaccelerated surgical recovery programhas increased in popularity, especially through the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe there is a healing value for patients recovering in their own home. They can sleep in their own bed, eat their own meals, and heal in the comfort of their normal environment, with their loved ones to support them. There is also value in the resources available in the hospital for our patients with medical conditions that may need treatment during their early recovery.

Is it possible to replace only part of a hip or knee?

Everyone developsarthritisdifferently and I treat each patient as an individual. In some patients, more often in my younger patients, only one part of their knee becomes worn out. For these patients, targeted surgery to replace only the worn-out part can be very helpful. In general, however, it is much more common for patients to have atotal knee replacement. Often there is arthritis in more than one part of the knee. Replacing only part of the knee will not treat all the arthritic areas in these patients. Partial hip replacements are also useful, but usually for patients who come to the hospital with a hip fracture. We have found partial hip replacements are not very beneficial in younger patients.

Are hip and knee joint replacements major surgeries?

Yes. It is important to understand that although joint replacement surgeries are some of the safest surgical procedures, no surgery has a 100 percent success rate and there are risks to any surgery, though complications are rare.

Some patients are also at higher risk for complication due to their unique situation and medical conditions. We do our absolute best to work with those few patients who have complications to bring them to a successful outcome.

While the surgery is not without risk, many patients with severe hip and knee arthritis can experience significant benefits from joint replacement. My best advice is for patients to sit down withtheir surgeonbefore considering hip or knee replacement, ask questions, and have a conversation about what the risks and benefits are. Then you can make an informed decision about whether now is the right time for you to pursue surgery.

How has joint replacement surgery changed?

Change is a constant in orthopedic surgery. It keeps the job interesting! I put a lot of thought into using new techniques and technologies in the treatments I offer. Before changing something that has worked well in my hands, or offering patients something new, it is critical to study and evaluate these new techniques and technologies to understand risk and potential benefit to patients.

I do, however, believe it is our responsibility to evaluate and offer new treatments and try new things because it is in the best interest of patients to practice at the state of the art. If we get stuck doing the same thing over and over again, we will never improve, we will never move medicine forward.

What is the failure rate of joint replacements?

With the bearing surfaces and replacements currently available, as a rule of thumb, there is about a one percent all-cause failure rate per year after joint replacement surgeries. That would mean that for a 60-year-old there is an 80 percent chance they will still have a well-functioning joint replacement when they reach age 80. Those are good odds in the patient’s favor.

For younger patients, the failure rate I discussed does not perfectly apply. Any mechanical device will wear out over time and service. Younger patients are more likely to live a higher-impact lifestyle, putting more stress on their implants. This may lead to a shorter effective lifetime before revision surgery is necessary.

This is really an arena where newer technology and techniques have great potential in improving the longevity and durability of the replacement surgeries we perform for these younger individuals. This is also where my background in engineering has given me a unique approach to understanding and evaluating the intricacies of new technologies and their application to updating the mechanical and biologic aspects of these complex engineered devices.

How do you approach using these new technologies and changing the way you do surgery?

As an engineer, I am attracted to new technologies, but as a surgeon I am cautious of unproven treatments. This has really helped provide a balance to my practice. I continue to adapt and update the techniques and technology in my surgical operations, but only after careful consideration of the effect on patients as human beings.

The field of orthopedics and adult reconstruction of the hip and knee is really the perfect combination of engineering and medicine. For me, the ability to use technology to find and perform a surgical solution to fix an anatomic problem, and then to share in a patient’s transformation from pain and disability to function and ability is what inspires and drives me every day.

Dr. Jenkins weights in on arthritis, weight and your joints in the Lifespan blog.

Most patients who come to my office for arthritis have what is known as osteoarthritis. This is the wear-and-tear type of arthritis thought to be the result of years of impact on your hip or knee joints. This causes the cartilage, the smooth gliding cushion on the joint surface, to wear out. You can think of it like years of driving your car. If you wear through your rubber tires and are driving on the metal rims of your wheels, you are in for a bumpy ride.

The weight factor

When it comes to arthritis, I believe weight is an issue. Having a background in engineering before medical school, I like to think about hip and knee joints as mechanical devices. These devices can only withstand a certain amount of pressure through a number of cycles over a period of time. In other words, if a patient is heavier, or does a lot of heavy labor involving those joints, those individuals may be more at risk of wearing that joint out over the course of a lifetime.Likewise, with joint replacements, those devices would wear out faster in heavier patients.

Will losing weight help people with arthritis?

It is very likely that losing weight will help people who have arthritis. Less weight means less pressure on the joint. For an arthritic joint that already has a damaged surface, losing weight can significantly relieve pain.

When I meet a new patient, I recommend nonoperative treatments before surgery and that includes weight loss. We have some great resources here atThe Miriam Hospital. I have had overweight patients with severe arthritis who were specifically referred to me by their primary care provider for a joint replacement. After losing a significant amount of weight from The Miriam program,they felt their pain that brought them into my office was no longer severe enough for them to want the surgery. That’s a big win for the patient: their pain improves without ever having surgery.

The benefit of weight loss is not just limited to their joint. People usually experience an amazing transformation after weight loss. Other medical conditions such as diabetes improve or are cured, their mood improves, and overall, they just feel better.

Weight and joint replacement surgery

While we do not want to keep anyone from a surgery that could help them, some patients are at a much higher risk for complications than others. I believe we as conscientious physicians should work as partners with patients and their other doctors to decrease as much risk as possible before joint replacement surgery. This is an area of active study for us here and we have already published on our experience in theRhode Island Medical Journal.

There is a lot that we can do together. We can help heavier patients lose weight, nicotine users quit their habits, patients with many cavities or dental infections see dentists before surgery, and diabetic patients better control their blood sugar. Many studies have shown that heavier patients, nicotine users, patients with dental infections, and diabetic patients with high blood sugar are at higher risk for infection and don’t heal as well after joint replacement surgery.

This conversation is difficult to have with patients in the office, but I believe it is an important one. It can take some time and a real team effort to meet these goals, but I believe it can improve surgical outcomes and help patients heal better.

How to improve your arthritis

Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease. Unfortunately, there is not a magic pill or cure yet, although we are excited for promising studies of new, less invasive therapies that are currently being researched in our lab.

We do have many effective, nonoperative treatments that are already available to our patients in the office that can provide years of arthritis pain relief. They include:

  • weight loss
  • using gait aids, such as a cane
  • anti-inflammatory medications
  • hip and knee joint injections

When nonoperative treatments have failed, joint replacement surgery, performed by an expert surgeon, is a very effective and safe surgical treatment. It also has some of the best long-term results of any surgical procedure.

In our practice, we are proud that our results and expertise in joint replacement surgery rival those of any hospital or surgery center anywhere in the world.

Preparing for joint replacementsurgery

Everyone is unique, and we treat each patient as such in our practice. If you are suffering fromhiporknee pain, it is always best to talk with anorthopedic surgeon. There are lots of treatments we can offer to help you feel better.

That said, there are some rules of thumb that will likely help a patient see more success in hip or knee surgery. Some general goals for a patient seeking joint replacement surgery would be to:

  • have a body mass index below 40
  • be nicotine, tobacco, vape, and smoke-free
  • have a hemoglobin A1C below 8 for patients with diabetes
  • see a dentist within the year before surgery to fix cavities and treat oral infections

Maintaining your health

The most important advice I can give arthritis patients is to live an active, healthy lifestyle. By this, I mean follow a healthy diet, exercise, and seek routine medical checkups. This will not only help prevent health and arthritis problems, but more importantly, it will also help make you feel better and live longer.

Health maintenance is key. Often in our society, we look for the quick and easy fix and that is not always best. The reality is a little bit of prevention each day, with physical hygiene and watching what we eat, is best for our long-term health. Living an active healthy lifestyle will likely take you the farthest in the long run.
