Dr. Whitted's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Whitted "After 20 years in the Cleveland area, and many years at the Cleveland Clinic, I returned to the city where I attended medical school: Toledo. I have loved taking care of Toledo once, and taking care of patients at the Toledo Clinic has been some of the best work of my career. Our office staff are friendly and welcoming. I think this reflects the pleasant environment I have worked to create in our orthopedic office. Besides our office manager - with 15 years at the Toledo Clinic - there are two Medical Assistants to serve are patients. These are certified professionals who are able to help all of our patients with any medical or office concern. I have worked for many years with a physician assistant, and currently the Physician Assistant in my office brings a wealth of experience, more than 15 years, in physical therapy, prior to becoming a physician assistant. The physician assistant (PA) knows and treats all of my patients with me, and has daily office appointments. While I am in surgery 3 days a week, the PA is able to manage all postsurgical and medical concerns of our patients, as well as evaluate and treat new orthopedic problems. Our patients admire his kindness and good loosening skills. My special training is in joint reconstruction, which means that my expertise is in joint surgery. I have over 25 years of experience with shoulder, hip, and knee replacement. In addition, I have the same years of experience with arthroscopic surgery at the shoulder and knee, including for sports injuries with torn meniscus of the knee, and torn rotator cuff of the shoulder. Modern joint replacement techniques have changed, and I have kept pace with these changes. The most important change in hip replacement surgery has been the use of ANTERIOR approach, which is surgery from the front of the hip. This new technique has been shown to reduce pain, improve early mobility, and reduce the complications of hip replacement surgery done with other techniques. The frontier of joint surgery will bring ROBOTICS and robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery. I am trained in both of these methods, and currently I am certified to perform robotically assisted partial and total knee replacements. It is my personal opinion that the final frontier in orthopedic surgery will be with biologic treatments. Currently we are researching STEM CELL treatments for orthopedic applications, including regenerative joint treatments which may some day obviate the need for joint replacement surgery. Our office staff will assist patients in obtaining a timely appointment, either the same day or next day, to evaluate any orthopedic problem of the shoulder, elbow, hip, or knee."
