At the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence, we understand that not everyone has access to consistent and quality healthcare, and we support the effort to bring this life-changing treatment to the neediest individuals
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
La Peer Health Systems is pleased to announce the opening of the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence, for a sub-division of our Beverly Hills surgery center devoted to the comprehensive treatment of joint disease and injury.
The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence is housed in a state-of-the-art facility and is focused on providing the most advanced joint replacement procedures for individuals suffering from chronic and debilitating joint conditions. The center brings together a team of orthopedic surgeons specializing in joint disease and injury to deliver effective, high-quality care.
“Joint degeneration is a chronic condition that progressively worsens overtime, and it might not get adequately resolved with conservative treatment,” explained Dr. Steven Meier, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and co-director of the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence. “Joint replacement allows patients to return to their daily activities without pain with a restored sense of freedom.”
The doctors at the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence are leading experts in the field of joint replacement, and utilize the most innovative techniques to perform knee replacement, hip replacement, and shoulder replacement surgeries. Joint replacement surgery involves replacing the damaged pieces of bone and tissue with durable and natural-feeling prosthetic implants. Many of these procedures are done with a minimally invasive, tissue-sparing approach that reduces complications, accelerates recovery, and results in better overall patient outcomes.
A major part of La Peer Health System's mission is to provide innovative, high-quality patient care while also giving back to the community. To accomplish this goal, doctors at the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence donate a portion of their proceeds to Operation Walk USA, a non-profit organization committed to helping individuals who require joint replacement but are unable to afford surgery. Through an immense volunteer network, the organization arranges free joint replacement surgeries to these patients.
“At the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence, we understand that not everyone has access to consistent and quality healthcare, and we support the effort to bring this life-changing treatment to the neediest individuals,” said co-director Dr. Jason Snibbe.
The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence is directed by renowned orthopedic surgeons Steven W. Meier, MD and Jason Snibbe, MD. Seven equally talented orthopedic surgeons perform a variety of joint replacement and preservation procedures at our Beverly Hills surgery center. These hip, knee, and shoulder specialists include Rajan Patel, MD; Eric Millstein, MD; Andrew Weiss, MD; Sonu Ahluwalia, MD; Peter Newton, MD; Melvin Nutig, MD; Neil Ghodadra, MD; and Joseph Isaacson, MD.
