Hear From a Patient

Feel Better

From diagnosis, to surgery, and through rehabilitation, we’re dedicated to providing a total healing process that helps patients feel their best.

Feel Complete

Physical healing is just the beginning. We help our patients regain the things they care about most – family, friends, work, hobbies, and dreams – so they can get back to leading a complete and happy life.

Feel Human

Every patient has unique needs, and that’s why we treat each person with the distinctive care, skill, experience, and reverence that’s right for him or her.

Surgical Specialties

At Midwest Center for Joint Replacement, we believe in providing a complete healing experience. We are national leaders in providing the partial knee replacement and the anterior hip replacement. Both procedures are less invasive and guarantee a faster recovery than traditional joint replacements.

Reverence. Innovation. Compassion.

Should you need surgery, you can rest assured that you will receive world-
class care, either at our specialized outpatient surgery center or at one of
Indiana’s top orthopedic hospitals.

Our surgeons and staff have been national leaders innovating the latest in
outpatient joint replacement surgery, but we offer inpatient surgery options
to those who may need additional care.

Where you have surgery depends on your insurance, overall health, and your
personal preference.
