Putting Patients First

Dr. Driesman understands the physical and emotional toll that hip and knee issues can take on individuals of all ages. Mobility is a fundamental aspect of our daily lives, and when compromised, it can be a source of frustration and pain. As a physician, Dr. Driesman is committed to putting patients first. He takes the time to listen to your unique story, understand your priorities, and collaboratively develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

One of the hallmarks of Dr. Driesman’s approach to orthopedic care is his commitment to exploring non-surgical treatment options before considering surgery. Surgery is always a last resort, employed only when other avenues of care have been exhausted. This patient-centered approach ensures that you receive the most appropriate and effective care for your condition.

A Local Expert with Exceptional Training

Dr. Adam Driesman was born and raised in Fairfield County, making him a true member of the local community. His educational journey led him to Brown University, where he completed the highly selective 8-year Program in Liberal Medical Education, earning both his undergraduate and medical degrees. His commitment to excellence in orthopedic surgery continued with his residency at NYU, where he trained in one of the top-ranked orthopedic programs in the country according to US News and World Report.

To further hone his skills and expertise, Dr. Driesman completed an Advanced Fellowship in Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction under the guidance of Dr. Douglas Dennis, a renowned pioneer in total knee replacement surgery. During his extensive training, Dr. Driesman performed over 1,000 procedures, ranging from minimally invasive hip arthroscopy to complex knee revisions.

Minimally Invasive Surgery Expert

At the heart of Dr. Driesman’s practice is a commitment to minimally invasive surgical techniques. These approaches offer numerous benefits, including faster recovery times and reduced postoperative pain. Here are some key aspects of his surgical philosophy:

  • Muscle-Sparing Anterior Approach: Dr. Driesman predominantly uses the muscle-sparing anterior approach for total hip replacements. This technique allows for quicker recovery and less disruption to the surrounding tissues.
  • Partial Knee Replacements: In select patients, Dr. Driesman opts for partial knee replacements. This approach aims to preserve healthy cartilage while only addressing the diseased portions of the joint, restoring normal biomechanics and function.
  • Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery: Dr. Driesman is well-versed in minimally invasive robotic hip and knee surgery, which enables personalized treatment plans and rapid recovery, helping patients regain their active lifestyles sooner.
