Don't use this doctor! He never checked on me once after my surgery. . After Dr. Dearborn had performed the surgery he kept referring me to his P/A. I was in so much pain, and finally another physician discovered the joint had come loose and a year later I had to have the knee replacement replaced again! It was a very painful experience. I would not recommend this Doctor to anyone!

When his surgeries go wrong, he has no compassion or follow up with his patients.

Dr. Dearborn's Care Philosophy

I love what I get to do with and for my patients. Fortunately, joint replacement is a generally reliable procedure, so we focus our attention on whether surgery is right for the patient. We spend a great deal of time aligning patient expectations with the reality of what these procedures can deliver, based on our current outcomes and research. Some patients have had replacements elsewhere that have not worked well. We specialize in analyzing the reasons why and developing a corrective plan.
