Joint Replacement

Dr. Jeffrey Katzell has done an orthopedic surgeon residency under the tutelage of Dr. Frederick Buechel. Dr. Buechel was a pioneer in porous coated non cemented total joint replacements which have a much longer life expectancy than some cemented joint replacement components. Dr. Buechel’s experience as an innovator and an inventor has allowed him to devise a mobile bearing total knee replacement that remains the gold standard for joint replacement technology about the knee. Having trained under Dr. Buechel and having extensive experience in implanting artificial joints about the hip, knee and shoulder, Dr. Katzell has particular expertise and a very favorable success rate for patients who have severe degenerative or post traumatic arthritic conditions and who cannot be salvaged with less invasive techniques other than joint replacement.
