Lower Extremity Joint Replacement & Reconstruction

Matthew J. Phillips, MD

As a member of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, I have always tried to maintain a healthy balance between my clinical practice, my educational duties, and my research endeavors.  By incorporating these three facets into my professional life I believe that I am able to provide the highest quality care to my patients while giving back to the community as a whole through both teaching and scientific research.

I subspecialize in hip and knee arthroplasty including complex deformity and revision cases.  Hip and knee replacements are some of the most successful procedures in all of medicine today.  It is very gratifying to me to be able to restore function and provide pain free mobility to patients who have been afflicted with debilitating arthritis, congenital deformity or post-traumatic joint problems. I have been fortunate to be at the forefront of the development and use of computer navigation for knee replacement.  I have also been a leader in the development of less-invasive hip replacement techniques that have allowed patients to go through the surgery process with much less pain and a more rapid recovery.
