Dr. Bashyal is an internationally recognized expert and leader in the field of minimally invasive hip and knee replacement surgery. His experience, training, and continuing education combined with a background in biomedical and orthopaedic engineering have allowed him to innovate a unique approach to hip and knee surgery that allows for rapid recovery, lower complication rates, and optimized outcomes.

This approach involves the use of muscle sparing surgical techniques, use of specialized instrumentation that he has helped design, hypo-allergenic implants that are created to minimize any adverse reaction once implanted, and customized, patient specific surgical planning utilizing highly precise computer modeling and 3-D printing allowing for more accurate component sizing, placement and subsequent longevity.

His minimally invasive approach results in many patients being able to go home the same day, and he is currently the Director of Outpatient Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery for NorthShore University Health System.

However, some patients may have prior medical conditions that require monitoring and would prevent a same-day discharge, or simply may not feel individually or emotionally comfortable enough to go home the same day. Dr. Bashyal recognizes this, and while they will still benefit from his minimally invasive surgical approach, he and his team will discuss post-operative planning on an personalized individual basis to ensure that patient safety and peace of mind come first.

At the end of the day, happy patients are the most important barometer of a successful operation and a good doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Bashyal and his team are committed to doing their best to optimize outcomes for patients, and to decrease the anxiety and fear that some patients facing surgery feel, by communicating openly, frequently, and honestly.
