The orthopedic teams at SMCS have deep expertise in advanced treatments such as:

We’ve taken an added step toward improving patient outcomes by joining the California Joint Replacement Registry, an independent organization that collects and reports patient and clinical data about the outcomes of joint replacement procedures. This registry helps doctors continuously improve the quality of care you receive when you have a hip or knee replacement.
