We have 19 joint replacement surgeons with over 350 years of experience who have performed thousands of joint procedures each year and have employed all available surgical techniques and technologies to repair your hip or knee to help improve your quality of life and personal freedom.


Higher surgical volumes typically result in better patient outcomes because of an increased familiarity with procedures and improved technique. Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center physicians perform more than 12,000 surgeries a year -- more than most other area hospitals. Our team of medical professionals is dedicated to orthopedic care. You can see our surgeons without a referral, and they can offer a second opinion.

Research & Education

Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center surgeons are active members of Summa Health System’s teaching and medical education staffs. They continually work to improve upon existing procedures and technology to ensure maximum patient benefit.

Our surgeons also conduct research in a number of venues. One research project is the development of Apatone®B (a combination of vitamins C and K3), a drug that may increase the lifespan of artificial joint replacements and decrease inflammation that sometimes occurs after surgery.
