Joint Replacement Team

The Saint Thomas Health joint replacement team includes surgeons, orthopedic certified nurses, patient care technicians, case managers and physical therapists. We embrace a team approach in the care of our patients from pre-operative education to surgery to physical therapy. Because of this approach, patients have a better understanding of their condition, restoration of mobility and improved quality of life.

Saint Thomas Health orthopedic surgeons have a rich legacy in joint replacement, working alongside joint replacement pioneers from across the world. Our forefathers developed some of the first implants and vitally important protocols, like specially-designed operating rooms and infection control practices, which made joint replacement surgery practical. They also collaborated with the nursing staff to map out every possible aspect of care.

Many past and present Saint Thomas Health orthopedic surgeons have been instrumental in research programs and the design of new technology for joint replacement. This tradition of excellence is the foundation of Saint Thomas Health's joint replacement program, which is consistently recognized as one of the best in the nation.
