Dr. DeBoer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. DeBoer "The surgeons and medical staff at SJRI work with patients during all phases of joint care. Our goal is to see that our patients are well prepared for their hospitalization, physical therapy and post-op care. We believe this makes the surgery process proceed more smoothly for the patients and their families. Dr. DeBoer is an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in primary and total joint replacement. He holds two degrees from Vanderbilt University: a medical doctorate and a master's degree in biomedical engineering. After finishing his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Vanderbilt Medical Center, Dr. DeBoer completed a fellowship under Dr. Michael Christie in 1996. He, along with Dr. Christie, co-founded Southern Joint Replacement Institute in 1999. Their goal was to create a physician's practice that "strives to combine quality patient care with state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge research." Dr. DeBoer is the Joint Replacement Research Program Director for Sarah Cannon Research Institute. His research is primarily focused on clinical outcomes of joint replacement surgery, and biomechanics of the hip and knee joints. He is currently the chairman of the Clinical Best Practice Committee on Joint Replacement Surgery for the 180 hospitals in the HCA network."

I had my first appointment with Dr. DeBoer last week. He was very personable and hands on. His staff is so nice and caring, efficient at the same time. I know without a doubt I have made the best choice for my knee replacement. Looking forward to it!

This was my initial visit to SJRI and I found Dr. DeBoer to be very caring and thorough. His staff was helpful and very pleasant. Dr. DeBoer ordered in house x-rays of my hips. After my exam, he ordered a couple of other x-rays to get a better look at my left hip and then discussed his findings...more
