Taking the Lead Robotic-assisted Surgery At Summit Orthopedic Specialists

In climbing, the lead climber is the person who finds the path up the mountain first. The most skillful climbers take the lead because they have the knowledge and the training to chart a course and secure the ropes for other climbers to follow.

At Summit Orthopedic Specialists, we take the lead in robotic-assisted surgery. Sacramento board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Paul Sasaura guides the robotic “hands” to make exact incisions that are smaller and more precise than any human hand can achieve, promoting faster healing and better outcomes.

As a leading robotic-assisted orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Sasaura travels across the country on behalf of robotic surgery manufacturer Naveo, instructing other surgeons on properly using this system. Dr. Sasaura takes the lead to improve orthopedic surgery as a field and guide others to the peak of orthopedic care.

With thousands of happy patients now living their lives pain free and back to doing the things they love, it’s no wonder people choose Summit Orthopedic Specialists.


“The doctors here are so awesome! Dr. Sasaura has done two ACL reconstructions on each knee and I have referred him to anyone needing a great knee doctor. I had two ACL reconstructions before Sasaura and they both failed. My knees were a mess and he fixed them! Can't tell you how grateful I am for his knowledge and wonderful bedside manners. Believe me - the doctors here are great and are on the cutting edge of technology!” –Shawn W.

“A friend who is a physician referred me to this practice many years ago because of hip problems. I have had a perfect arthroscopic hip surgery performed by Dr. Greene, a perfect total hip replacement surgery by Dr. Sasaura, and a dozen visits for cortisone injections and follow-up appointments throughout my time as a patient. I'm a huge fan of these guys and Summit. They are the best!” –Mark S.

“I absolutely love the doctors and the receptionist is always so nice at check-in. Dr. Greene is amazing and has such a great bedside manner. He did a great job on my surgery and explaining everything at my pre-op and what happened during surgery at my post-op with photos. I will continue to use Summit Orthopedic Specialists for my orthopedic issues." -Kim L.

“Wonderful experience with staff and doctors before, during, and after my hip replacement. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sausaora. He is a talented and personable surgeon.

I'm so glad I found this place... If I have any more issues come up I will be going back here!! The office décor was very nice. I give my overall experience even though I was in pain, an A+.” -Marty D.

“Hands down the best orthopedic care I have ever had. I have had years of issues with a failed hip replacement from another doctor in another city. I was sent to Dr. Sasaura for a hip revision. Dr. Sausara fixed my hip. My life turned around once he became my orthopedist. He is also personable, caring, and explains everything that will happen. The staff is great. I am relieved to be a patient at a medical practice that treats their patients so well. I would highly recommend Dr. Sausara. –Melinda B.

Total Knee Replacement

We ask a lot of our knees. They carry our weight, allow us to walk, pivot, run, and absorb the impact of our steps and landings and falls. When they wear out, we feel it all over our bodies.

Total knee replacement alleviates that pain by resurfacing the areas of the knee that are damaged or diseased and replacing them with a prosthetic. At Summit Orthopedic Specialists in Sacramento, total knee replacement is a high-tech outpatient procedure. Our surgeons make sure our surgeries are as minimally invasive as possible to reduce recovery times.

Total Hip Replacement

Everyone has an opinion about when or if you should get a hip replacement, from friends and loved ones to your neighbor down the block. But not everyone is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip replacement in Sacramento.

Summit Orthopedic Specialists has a few of those, and they’ll be happy to help. If you experience consistent hip pain during your normal daily activities, our hip specialists can help ease your burden and answer your questions. And, unlike your neighbor, they have Ph.Ds and years of surgical experience to guide their answers.

Total Shoulder Replacement

You have a lot riding on your shoulders. Don’t let shoulder pain add to your burden. If you experience persistent or worsening shoulder pain that doesn’t go away with therapy or rest.

It may be time to look into an orthopedic solution like total shoulder replacement. Sacramento’s Summit Orthopedic Specialists have innovative and customizable solutions to minimize the downtime of shoulder replacement. We use hi-tech methods to perform these surgeries on an outpatient basis to save you money and encourage a speedy recovery.

Joint Revision

The only thing more frustrating than dealing with persistent joint pain is dealing with persistent joint pain after you’ve already had surgery to correct it.

Our surgeons at Summit Orthopedic Specialists offer joint revision surgery to patients coping with this maddening situation. We can use our leading-edge technologies to identify what went wrong with your previous surgery, find a solution to correct it and get you back to where you thought you would be before your first surgery.

Viscosupplement Injections

Not every problem needs surgery to solve it. Sometimes, our doctors can provide joint pain relief through viscosupplement injections (also known as “gel” injections”).

These injections add hyaluronic acid into the joint to provide a cushion between the bones to reduce pain and discomfort. In Sacramento, Summit Orthopedic Specialists offers a wide variety of joint injections to reduce swelling, increase mobility, ease discomfort, prevent damage, and delay surgical intervention.

Perhaps you’ve been referred to a specialist for a joint issue but are afraid that you may need an expensive MRI.

At Summit Orthopedic Specialists, we offer our patients in Sacramento mi-eye; a revolutionary form of in-office arthroscopy that can eliminate the need to get an MRI in many cases. Using mi-eye, our doctors can see inside your joints right there in the office — no long waits for expensive and intimidating MRIs. In many cases, they can even diagnose the issue and recommend treatment right there in the same visit!
