      Dr. Gilbert is an assistant professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Keck Medical School of USC. He specializes in hip and knee replacement and preservation. He has performed thousands of joint replacements over the past twenty years. Dr. Gilbert has pioneered computer navigation, minimally invasive techniques and advanced pain management programs. His fascination with the application of computer technology in surgery and the benefit of sophisticated instruments for procedural accuracy has led Dr. Gilbert to adopt robotics for his partial knee replacements. Recent advances in orthorobotics allows for the successful implantation of single compartment knee replacements in appropriate cases. Dr. Gilbert has used computer navigation in over five hundred joint replacement procedures. Areas of current research capturing his attention are the use of tourniquets in knee replacement surgery and the success of partial knee replacements.
