Our Philosophy

A.V.A.T.A.R®: Exemplary Care and Superior Results

At our center, the A.V.A.T.A.R® program represents our commitment to delivering exceptional care and achieving outstanding results. We specialize in state-of-the-art joint replacement procedures, providing a personalized and compassionate approach to each patient’s journey. However, our dedication to your restoration doesn’t end with the operation. We believe in the importance of creating a comprehensive recovery plan, empowering patients to take informed actions in their healing process.

Drawing from over 20 years of experience, here’s what we’ve learned:

Unparalleled Orthopedic Care Tailored to You

In today’s world, the term “state-of-the-art” is often overused and requires reevaluation in its application. Merely being the newest technology is not enough, as rigorous testing in both the laboratory and real patient scenarios is crucial. We have witnessed many so-called “cutting-edge” technologies fall short, causing harm instead of progress. It takes expertise, time, and experience to discern the truly effective from the questionable. We take our responsibility in this regard seriously.

To us, it means that every decision we make on your behalf must be grounded in sound reasoning, proven efficacy, and safety. We heavily rely on outcomes data and value patient feedback. As pioneers in the field, we stay at the forefront of emerging technologies. However, we approach their implementation with caution, closely monitoring their real-time application through comprehensive data collection and analysis, published in reputable journals. We steadfastly reject the use of unproven or discredited treatments driven by marketing, hype, or profit.

The Personal Touch of Advanced Technology

Technology, while convenient and efficient, can sometimes feel impersonal and cold. In the realm of medicine, particularly within surgical specialties, the human touch becomes

paramount to supplement the innovative and efficient nature of our program. That’s why our phones are answered by real people, our office visits aren’t rushed, and we ensure that every patient’s questions are answered to their satisfaction. Your health is personal, and we treat it as such.

We recognize that each patient has unique perspectives and expectations regarding their healthcare needs. We approach every individual as an exceptional case, understanding that many patients arrive with their own researched game plan. We serve as a trusted sounding board, actively listening and providing expert advice, especially for active and athletic individuals.

Compassionate Care

Our patients often face the prospect of losing their lifelong independence due to progressive hip, knee, or shoulder issues. Surgery is typically the last resort, pursued after exhausting all other forms of care. We understand the anxiety and apprehension that accompanies undergoing an operation, acknowledging that the journey may involve temporary discomfort before achieving lasting improvement.

Week after week, we stand by our patients, addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of surgery. Together, we navigate these challenges as a team, ensuring our patients make the best choices for themselves and their families.

The Benefits of Experience

Our wealth of data and experience extends beyond the direct care of our patients. We are committed to advancing our field by actively contributing to the postgraduate education of practicing orthopedic surgeons. This involves teaching visiting surgeons, presenting our data at national and international educational meetings, and publishing our research. The vast amount of data we collect not only aids our patients in their recovery but also benefits patients under the care of surgeons worldwide. Through our dedication, we have developed technological advancements that have been embraced as mainstream innovations.

Ongoing care is the name of the game. Recovery is a long-term process, and while our team strives to maintain a same-day outpatient surgery experience, it doesn't mean we leave you to figure out healing on your own.
