PAUL M. LOMBARDI, MD, FAAOS
Dr. Paul Lombardi specializes in joint replacement of the hip and knee, doing so whenever possible through minimally invasive techniques
that can result in shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery. He also performs anterior hip replacement, a surgical procedure done through
the front of the hip. “This approach has allowed recovery time to be compressed to maybe four to six weeks instead of three or four months,”
Board certified in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Lombardi also received fellowship training in joint replacement at New York City’s Hospital for
Special Surgery, frequently recognized as the best of its kind in the country.
Dr. Lombardi employs the latest technology, including outpatient hip and knee replacement, Birmingham hip resurfacing, gender-specific
knee replacement, and computer-assisted surgery. He serves as chairman of the joint replacement service in the Department of Orthopedics at
Morristown Medical Center. The hospital has received the prestigious Gold Seal of Approval™ from the Joint Commission, achieving disease-specific care certifications for hip replacement and knee replacement in recognition that both of these programs have met rigorous standards
for quality and safety.
In practice for more than a decade, Dr. Lombardi has a state-of-the-art office in Morristown, so patients do not need to travel to New York
City or Philadelphia for the best possible care when it comes to joint replacement.
