Dr McCandless replaced both of my knees and it changed my life. Great doctor!! I have referred a lot of folks to the Utah office. I was sad to hear he left and moved to California. I guess I'll head to California if my health requires his assistance again!!

About Me

Care Philosophy

I believe that mobility and quality of life go hand in hand. Surgery is an excellent solution to many problems but not the only one. I use all technologies and techniques from computer navigation to robotic surgery to minimally invasive techniques. My goal is to understand the patients needs and physical demands to come up with a solution tailored to their needs.
