Muscle sparing techniques for Joint Replacement use similar hip and knee implants as does traditional surgery, but we are able to avoid cutting muscle and tendon tissue so that recovery is generally much 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 is currently The Chief of Surgery at Scottsdale Lincoln Health Network  Medical Center -Osborn, as well as past 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. We try to deliver VIP care to all patients.joinnts (1)


Dr. Kozinn also has a special interest in arthroscopic surgery for the hip, knee, and shoulder. These are most often accomplished as outpatient procedures. 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 “mature athletes  and weekend warriors”, and Dr. Kozinn is an accomplished expert in all arthroscopic and open shoulder  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. For complex shoulder surgeries, we often combine mini-open and arthroscopic techniques. Pain is managed well with regional blocks and local anesthetics.
