This content was provided by Dr. Palmer "Experience is what makes an expert. My practice is limited to knee and hip replacement surgery. Nothing else. I am fellowship trained in the specialty and for more than a decade I have assisted thousands of patients with the recovery from their pain and disability due to arthritis. I am the regions most experienced anterior hip replacement surgeon and serve as a national instructor teaching other surgeons how to safely perform the procedure.
