Conditions Treated

Dr. Patton says..

Half of my practice deals with joint replacement procedures and arthritis.  

I have performed anterior total hip replacements since 2009 and have found this procedure to be more beneficial to the patient in terms of quicker recovery and less pain when compared with the more traditional posterior approach.  I perform approximately 100 anterior hip replacements per year.

I also perform total and partial knee replacements frequently and have done so since 2000 when I started my practice in Orthopedic Surgery.  I average between 100-150 of these procedures per year.  Most patients are able to leave the hospital after a two night stay and go home to receive additional therapy.

Shoulder replacements are a smaller part of my practice, but this procedure along with reverse shoulder replacement for rotator cuff problems and fractures are procedures I have been performing for several years.
