Dr. Thomas Ferro: Nanoknee Founder

The founder of Nanoknee, Los Angeles knee replacement specialists, Dr. Thomas Ferro, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in knee and hip replacement surgery.

Over his two decades in practice, he has focused upon developing advanced surgical techniques to aid in speeding patient recovery. In 2015, he began incorporating several new surgical and anesthesia techniques for a “rapid recovery” protocol. In 2017, he went further, developing the Nanoknee system.

This innovative knee replacement technique allows you to return home just two hours after surgery – and walk with full weight-bearing on your repaired knee structure immediately.

Dr. Akshay Mehta, M.D., M.S.

As a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mehta has extensive experience in sports medicine, shoulder and elbow surgery, and advanced treatments for disorders of shoulder, hip, knee, and musculoskeletal trauma.

Dr. Mehta has dedicated his life to improving the lives of those who suffer from debilitating knee pain as a result of joint degeneration. At Nanoknee, the advanced surgical technique makes the patient experience less physically stressful, with minimal pain, with immediate use of the knee.

Dr. Mehta has authored many published articles in peer-reviewed medical journals and is currently engaged in biomechanics research to aid in the development of better treatments for shoulder and knee.

Technology in Action: The Nanoknee Method

Knee replacement surgery, whether total or partial, has greatly improved outcomes with the use of the advanced technology used throughout the process, starting with 3D modeling. The optimization in kinetic alignment of the knee replacement is achieved by creating a virtual replica of the patient’s actual knee joint to identify the ideal placement prior to surgery.

With this advanced method, it possible to surgically achieve a highly-accurate fit that matches the unique physiology of the patient, leading to a superior result in function, strength, mobility, and comfort. This revolutionary approach to knee replacement surgery allows the patient to walk immediately after surgery and return to work or other activities more quickly.

Nanoknee has revolutionized the process of knee replacement surgery with advanced technology, from surgical planning through to a digital rehabilitation platform to track daily progress with 24/7 access to Nanoknee staff.
