Joint Replacement


Our goal has been to provide patients with first-rate state-of-the-art hip and knee replacement surgical care in a setting that’s close to home.

Our office staff constantly gets rave reviews from patients for their availability, efficiency and friendliness.

In an impersonal medical world of automated phones, paperwork and loss of identity we’re the exception. Dr. Courtney and Dr. Patterson perform hundreds of hip and knee replacements each year. We also provide specialized services like partial knee replacements and shoulder replacements.

Our surgeons have helped Winchester Medical Center earn its prominence as a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement by Blue Cross and Blue Shield. We know that joint replacement is a big step for patients and we provide a comprehensive approach to manage your arthritis until you are ready for surgery. 

We also work closely with the Valley Health Fit for Surgery Program to get you at your peak before surgery.
