Joint pain affects more than your ability to move,
it affects your ability to live day to day.

At The Hip & Knee Center, we have performed thousands of successful procedures enabling
our patients to reclaim their mobility and live their lives to the fullest.

Experience is the difference

Dr. Shawn W. Palmer D.O. 
Orthopedic Surgeon

While many doctors perform hip and knee replacement surgery, not many surgeons focus exclusively on these two procedures nor have they performed thousands of hip and knee replacements.

Dr. Palmer is a national instructor for surgical skills training and one of the nation’s most experienced Anterior Approach Hip Replacement surgeons. When considering surgery to regain your active lifestyle, his experience can make all the difference.
