Missouri Orthopaedic Institute

Hip and Knee

Our hip and knee surgeons are among the most experienced orthopaedic surgeons in total joint replacement in central Missouri. Many surgeons throughout Missouri refer patients requiring complex and difficult operations to them.

In addition to treating patients, our surgeons focus on developing future techniques and technologies in hip and knee surgery, including hip resurfacing, which is an alternative to total hip replacement for younger, active adults. Because of their cutting-edge research, our physicians are some of the first to perform new techniques in mid-Missouri.

Joint Camp Program for Patients

Patients planning to undergo hip replacement or knee replacement surgeries are encouraged to attend, along with family members or caregivers, our Joint Camp program at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute. It is designed to make surgery, recovery and rehabilitation easier to understand, and to work together toward a successful outcome from an operation. Get details.
