As a surgeon performing a high volume of knee and hip joint replacements (currently over 400 per year) for many years (private practice at Midlands Orthopaedics , PA since 1994) , I have been able to hone my skills and develop standardized protocols to minimize the risk of complications. Detailed risk disclosures based on my personal results for primary straightforward surgery are available on Forms #10 , #11 , and #12. Please note that most general medical complications are not specified in detail because they vary according to the general health and age of the patient. Also complex or revision cases have significantly higher rates of complication. I will have to discuss these with you on an individual basis.
