Dr. Kao's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Kao "Finding relief to arthritic pain is something I can help with– it is something I can fix. My goal is to return patients to the things they love, whether it's gardening on the weekend, playing in a weekly tennis league or simply being pain free. I want to help patients get the most out of their life. Struggling with arthritis and deciding if, and when, a total joint replacement is right for you can be a stressful time. Anew joint is a lifelong commitment and it is my job to help guide you through the process, make sure all of your questions are answered, and that you are comfortable with the plan we come up with together. After completing my fellowship training in a hospital specializing in orthopaedic surgery, where the most joint replacements are performed each year in this country, I have learned the newest techniques and have incorporated them into my own practice. I have also had the opportunity to research and present on many cutting-edge topics in joint replacement at national conferences as well as spent time training using the techniques that have been established for years. I love hearing about people's lives and helping them get back to what they love is very important to me."
