Care Philosophy

When I worked in a material science laboratory that dealt with medical devices, that's when I became hooked on orthopedic surgery. Because I saw how important the materials that are used - for example in joint replacement - have such a critical impact on the outcomes of the surgery. In my area - in adult reconstructive surgery - a patient will come in typically after years and years of pain and disability involving their hip or knee. And then to see them back a few weeks after surgery, where their pain is gone, and because their pain is gone, their activity level is increased. These are some of the most grateful patients that exist in all of medicine - where you really, you can really see the impact you've had on their life.

Dr. Joshua j. Jacobs is rated Highly Qualified by Christopher Stoller. I had my knee replaced in May 2016 and Dr. Jacobs followed up with my post surgery. Dr. Jacobs has a very kind personally and is understanding to my medical needs.
