Orthopedic Institute of the West, a new medical group practice focusing on joint replacement and sports medicine, is now open in North Scottsdale. Led by accomplished surgeons who have served Valley patients for more than 40 years, the practice specializes in total joint reconstruction, revisions and knee arthroscopy.

Physicians include Jimmy Chow, MD, Brandon Gough, MD, Anthony Hedley, MD, FRCS and Timothy Bert, MD, are members of the hospital medical staff at nearby Abrazo Scottsdale Campus. Key services offered include:

Robotic-assisted partial and total knee replacement surgery

• Limited restrictions, micro-invasive total hip surgery and replacement

• Muscle and capsule sparing surgeries

• Quick recovery and short stay surgeries

• Complex total joint revisions

Hip and knee preservation

• Hip arthroscopy for pre-arthritic patients with hip impingement and labral tears 

“Our team of experienced surgeons specializes in minimally invasive orthopedic procedures that are  individualized for each patient. Whether it is a total knee or hip replacement, hip or knee preservation or total joint reconstruction, the goal is providing an unsurpassed patient experience and best possible outcome,” said Anthony Hedley, MD, FRCS.

A focus on soft-tissue preservation allows for an expedited and more comfortable post-surgical recovery period, reduces the amount of time patients stay in the hospital, and, in some cases, enables patients to complete their total joint replacement procedure on an outpatient basis.

“The Orthopedic Institute of the West is led by multiple fellowship trained, internationally recognized experts, providing high-end total joint reconstruction, revisions and knee arthroscopy. These surgeons have served the Phoenix area for over 40 years, and with patients from around the world,” said Alex Dashe, orthopedic services director for Abrazo Medical Group.
