Most people will spend more time shopping for a new watch or car than they will picking out their joint replacement surgeon. WHY?! Medicine may seem mysterious to the public, but like ANY other field there are sub-specialists and recognized experts in each field of surgery, It just makes common sense to find the BEST surgeon you can find. Look at credentials. Any doctor should be willing to publish their CV on their website, or ask the receptionist for a copy in their office.
Dr. Kozinn has done a Total Joint fellowship at Harvard Medical School, and has been teaching joint replacement techniques to other orthopedic surgeons for 26 years. He does over 300 total hips and over 300 total knees EACH year! He is the Medical Director of a 5 Star Total Joint Center at Scottsdale Osborn. Research has shown that high volume institutions get better results that facilities who only do a few joint replacements a year. Dr. Kozinn is the kind of surgeon that you want to do your total joint! He works right here in Scottsdale, Arizona. Why would you want to go anywhere else for your total hip or total knee?
