Care Philosophy

One of the reasons I chose to specialize in joint replacement and joint reconstruction was actually seeing the difference you can make for patients. When a person comes in and arthritis has essentially robbed them of their quality of life and is keeping them from doing the things they enjoy doing or want to do or even need to do to see the difference when they come back after surgery with a smile and a tremendous weight lifted from them able to return to the things that make life worth living is one of the rewarding things about what I do in orthopaedics. Taking care of people involves a team not only the nurses physical therapists other specialists and me but also the patient -- making sure that they know whats going on. Whats important is not just what I do in the operating room or in managing care after surgery. Its also teaching the patient giving them the knowledge about whats going on with their bodies so they can make good decisions. Empowering patients to have an impact on their health now and in years to come is very important.

Patient Comments (1)
in Liberty, NC |
Dr Hooten is the absolute best! I had a total hip replacement at ARMC. Dr Hooten was my surgeon. I'm pain free only 4 days after surgery and have far exceeded my physical therapy goals. My therapist said it was possible I would only need 2 weeks of therapy instead of 6. I was walking with a walker and easily climbing stairs on my second day of physical therapy. Dr Hooten did such a wonderful job and is so caring. He takes time explaining the procedure so you understand and answers all questions.
