Dr. Stuart Kozinn is a world class orthopedic surgeon who specializes in “tissue sparing” joint replacement surgery and minimally invasive joint surgery. Dr. Kozinn has practiced in Scottsdale, Arizona for 27 years and has extensive experience and expert training. After completing Orthopedic residency at the number one ranked Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, Dr. Kozinn did an additional Fellowship in Joint Replacement Surgery at Harvard Medical School in Boston. Muscle sparing techniques for Joint Replacement use similar hip and knee implants as traditional surgery, but we avoid cutting muscle and tendon tissue so that recovery is faster. These special techniques require additional experience and training, and they provide great benefits of decreased pain and reduced recovery time after surgery. Dr. Kozinn has been the Chief of Surgery at Scottsdale Medical Center -Osborn, as well as Chief of Orthopedic Surgery. He is a Clinical assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at The University of Arizona College of Medicine in Phoenix. Dr. Kozinn has been doing complex Total Hip, Total Knee, and Total Shoulder Replacements in Scottsdale for many years, and is always available to care for you.
Dr. Kozinn also has a special interest in outpatient arthroscopic surgery for the hip, knee, and shoulder. The most common knee problems treated with an arthroscope (a small camera that goes into the knee thru a small hole) are meniscus cartilage tears in the knee and debridement of arthritic areas in a joint. Utilizing these minimally invasive treatments results in rapid return to work and athletic activities for most patients. Shoulder problems are also very common in “maturing athletes and weekend warriors”, and Dr. Kozinn is an accomplished expert in all arthroscopic surgery techniques. Many shoulder problems such as rotator cuff tears and early arthritis problems can be managed quite effectively with the arthroscope, allowing patients to return to their favorite sports and activities very rapidly.
