Patient Education

The Scottsdale Joint Center is more than just a doctor’s office. Patient Education is very important. We want our patients to know that they will have the highest quality care available. From the initial visit and consultation, to the follow-up care after surgery, every patient gets the best care and personal attention they need. We not only want you to receive the best knee replacement or best hip replacement that you can, but we want you to experience an important life changing positive event.  So many of our patients say they turned there whole lives around after getting a new pain-free joint.

We want our patients to be educated on the procedures that we perform. Dr. Kozinn performs complex and routine total hip replacement and total knee replacement surgeries and has been operating on patients for over 27 years. The following patient education articles and information are important to him and, as a patient, should be important to you.  Read them, and call Gerry in our office at 480-994-1149 if you have any questions!
