Total Hip Replacement

If you are contemplating having a total hip replacement, you should learn the facts as much as they are known about the expected benefits as well as the risks and possible complications of the procedure.

Total Knee Replacement

If you are contemplating having a total knee replacement, we feel you should know the facts about the expected benefits, as well as the risks and possible complications of the procedure.

We are orthopaedic surgeons whose practice specializes in adult reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee. This involves mainly elective total joint replacement of the hip and knee, but also includes other reconstructive procedures such as osteotomy and bone tumor surgery. We specialize in revision of failed implants as well as difficult first time cases. Younger, so called "high risk" patients, are also a focus. We are using both less invasive techniques and computer aided surgery of the hip and knee.

We are located in Sacramento, California, but our patients come from around the nation as well as internationally.

We hope the information contained in this website will be of help to you, whether you are a current or prospective patient, or just want to know more about what we do. We think you will find the sections on Total Hip and Total Knee Replacements to be unique and enlightening.
