      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Kawaguchi's Care Philosophy

      As an orthopaedic surgeon, I try to determine the best options that will help my patients regain their baseline function. Sometimes this requires a surgical recommendation; other times this requires no surgery at all. For those with wear and tear knee arthritis (osteoarthritis), if you qualify, I am performing partial knee replacements using the latest robotic/computerized technology to optimize my patients' outcomes.
