I have authored numerous scientific papers and have presented before several national and international meetings. I am certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and have re-certified twice in the last 20 years. I bring to Sioux Falls a tremendous wealth of experience in all facets of hip and knee repalcements and the treatment of their potential complications."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ambrose II "My care philosophy is to engage the patient as a partner in the treatment of their hip or knee arthritis symptoms.  I strive to educate patients about the disease process, how it can be managed non-operatively early on, and when desired activities can no longer be enjoyed due to the pain limitations, surgical options are then discussed.  The patient is then enrolled in an organized "pre-hab" program where they meet their Orthopedic Navigator and the therapists that will be assisting them through the hospitalization process, and patients are familialrized with the care pathways that we utilize to ensure consistency in care delivery and thus improve both early and late outcomes."
