Lower Extremity Joint Replacement & Reconstruction

Sridhar R. Rachala, MD

I currently serve as a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery with subspecialty interest in lower extremity adult reconstruction. My interest includes taking care of and improving the outcomes for most difficult situations we face in my subspecialty including infections and complex revisions. I am also passionate about improving the outcomes of primary joint replacement and training the future surgeons in good predictable techniques in primary joint replacement thereby decreasing the load of revision surgeries.  I primarily operate out of Buffalo General and Kenmore Mercy hospitals and am also actively involved in the value analysis of various implant choices and treatments so that we can provide affordable care by demand matching. We are also involved in various research projects incorporating new techniques to improve clinical outcomes.

“Change is inevitable” this is the moto that drives me. The current standard of care will be an outdated concept in future. Just as anything else in medicine, we continue to evolve, especially in our field of orthopaedic surgery, to better diagnose and treat various ailments that cripple our patients there by increasing their productivity and quality of life.  We as an organization and me, personally take pride in positioning ourselves at the forefront of this process of evolving into better health care providers while critically evaluating the value of the new treatments and also training the future surgeons to have a solid base to launch further in the advancement of the field. The main focus of my practice is the patient care and improving outcomes by innovation while also educating future surgeons.

I feel proud and privileged to be associated with an organization such as UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine that places me in the position and provides me the tools to achieve the goals I strive for.
