Care Philosophy

My main function here is to do redo joint replacements, both hip replacements and knee replacements. Because we do so many of these redo procedures - replacing missing bone with either bone graft material or the newer, porous metal materials - we have to have all of the other implants that are available. And by and large, if we don't have it here for these redo hips and knees, it probably doesn't exist. And that's one of the huge advantages of doing a lot of procedures and being in an institution that has invested tremendously in the cost of supplying these more unusual devices.
