Dr. Taunt Jr's Care Philosophy

To provide the finest, most thoughtful and compassionate care of the arthritic hip and knee with a basis in science. I strive to get patients better quickly, to have their outcomes last a long time, and to do so in the safest way possible. I have a special interest in revision total hip and knee replacement and take on many very difficult "re-do" patients and cases. In doing so I hope to be able to improve a patient's quality of life through hard work, a good plan, sound advice and a thorough understanding of what we are about to embark on.
