Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Estes "Working with a team of skilled caregivers, Dr. Estes provides a comprehensive approach to joint replacement surgery. During his fellowship at Rush University, Dr. Estes received extensive training in state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgical techniques that minimize trauma to the muscles, tendons and ligaments surrounding the joint. These techniques result in less postoperative discomfort, shorter hospital stays and a quicker recovery."
