Our goal has always been to provide the highest level of excellence in patient care. In addition to performing thousands of successful hip and knee replacement surgeries, Joint Implant Surgeons is committed to orthopaedic research. Joint Implant Surgeons was a pioneer in tracking outcomes with an electronic medical records system first implemented in 1980, and all surgery reports back to the beginning of the practice entered into the database. We continuously study the outcomes of our practice and use that information to evolve and improve the quality of our patient care. Our research is regularly published in peer-reviewed orthopaedic journals and textbooks as well as presented by our surgeons at medical conferences worldwide.
