Ahmed Siddiqi, MD

INNOVATIVE HIP & KNEE EXPERT

BACKGROUND 

Dr. Ahmed Siddiqi is a board-eligible, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the replacement of the hip and knee joint as well as revision hip and knee replacement.

A native of Staten Island, NY, he began his medical journey out of high school, attending a combined 7-year accelerated BS/DO program at the New York Institute of Technology. After completing his undergraduate studies in 3 years, he attended medical school at Touro College of Medicine in New York, New York. HE completed an orthopedic surgery residency at PCOM/Jefferson Health/Main Line Health in Philadelphia, PA where he trained with world renown Rothman Orthopedic, University of Pennsylvania, New England Baptist orthopedic surgeons. He also spent considerable time at Cooper University Hospital, one of the region’s busiest Level 1 Trauma Centers in Camden, NJ.

TRAINING

During his training, he published numerous chapters in internationally distributed textbooks and articles in peer-reviewed journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research and the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. As a chief resident he received the Dr. Ira Sachs “Road Less Travelled” Award for outstanding leadership as a Chief Resident and the 2018 John Charnley Hip Society Award for his investigation on Medicare bundled payments.

He went on to complete a prestigious fellowship in adult reconstruction and total joint replacement at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic (one of the top three orthopedic hospitals in the world as ranked by US News and World Report). While at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Siddiqi was trained on the latest techniques in both surgical and non-surgical treatment of advanced joint disease. During his clinical fellowship year, he was involved in over 40 research projects with over 30 publications in peer-reviewed journals and textbooks.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

He has a vibrant academic side to his practice. He serves as a reviewer for the Journal of Arthroplasty, Journal for Bone and Joint Surgery, Orthopedics, Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research and has an extensive background in clinical research.

Dr. Siddiqi brings cutting edge techniques and technology to the Central Jersey area. He has extensive training in minimally invasive, rapid recovery joint replacement as well as robotically assisted hip and knee replacement. Dr. Siddiqi continues to expand the outpatient joint replacement program allowing some patients to go home the same day as their procedure and recover in the comfort of their own home. Dr. Siddiqi practice serves both adult and geriatric patients.

Dr. Siddiqi has a large extended family with deep ties to New York City and central Jersey. He is married with four children, and enjoys his time exploring different ethnic foods, traveling, playing baseball, basketball and is a die-hard New York Yankees fan.

Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (Pain, Function, and Quality of Life) After Aseptic Revision Total Knee Arthroplasty

Despite the growing frequency of revision total knee arthroplasty (rTKA), there is limited information regarding patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) after that procedure. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine (1) PROM improvements in pain, function, quality of life (QOL), and global health and (2) predictors of PROMs for patients undergoing aseptic rTKA as determined using a multilevel model with patients nested within surgeons.

Diagnosis and Management of Intraoperative Fractures in Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty

Intraoperative periprosthetic fractures are challenging complications that may affect implant stability and survivorship. Periprosthetic acetabular fractures are uncommon and infrequently are the focus of studies. Acetabular fractures are occasionally recognized after patients report unremitting groin pain weeks postoperatively. The widespread use of cementless acetabular cups might lead to higher number of fractures than is clinically detectable. Conversely, the incidence of intraoperative periprosthetic femoral fractures are more common and encompass a broad spectrum, ranging from a small cortical perforation to displaced fractures with an unstable prosthesis. Appropriate recognition, including mindfulness of preoperative patient and surgical risk factors, is critical to the successful management of acetabular and femoral complications.

Direct Anterior Approach for Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty: Anatomy and Surgical Technique

There has been increased interest and literature on the efficacy of direct anterior approach (DAA) for total hip arthroplasty (THA). Developments in surgical technique and instrumentation, along with exposure earlier in orthopaedic residency training, may augment the adoption of this approach among practicing orthopaedic surgeons. With the increasing number of primary THA performed through the DAA, understanding the indications and techniques associated with revision THA via the DAA has proved increasingly important.

Not All Robotic-assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty Are the Same

Because value in healthcare has shifted to a measurement of quality relative to the cost, a greater emphasis exists on improving clinical and functional outcomes and patient satisfaction. Despite advances in implant design, surgical technique, and postoperative rehabilitation, multiple studies demonstrate that nearly 20% of patients remain dissatisfied with their overall outcomes after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Because implant positioning, alignment, and equal soft-tissue balance are critical for a successful TKA, malalignment in the coronal, sagittal, and rotational planes continue to increase failure rates and cause poor clinical outcomes. Robotic-assisted TKA has gained momentum within the past 10 years to better control surgical variables…

Periprosthetic Fractures Through Tracking Pin Sites Following Computer Navigated and Robotic Total and Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty

Use of computer-assisted navigation (CAN) and robotic- assisted (RA) surgery in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) both necessitate the use of tracking pins rigidly fixed to the femur and tibia. Although periprosthetic fractures through tracking pin sites are rare, there is a paucity of literature on this potential complication. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review of the current literature to assess the incidence and clinical outcomes of periprosthetic fractures through tracking pin sites following CAN and RA TKA and UKA.

Pursuit of The Ideal Antiseptic Irrigation Solution in the Management of Periprosthetic Joint Infections

Irrigation and debridement in the treatment of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) serve an integral role
in the eradication of bacterial burden and subsequent re-infection rates. Identifying the optimal irrigation agent,
however, remains challenging, as there is limited data on superiority.
