Dr. Jon Dounchis is an orthopedic surgeon at the NCH Physician Group. He has been doing robotic assisted procedures on the knee and hip for five years involving hundreds of cases, and has also been involved in clinical research, application development and surgeon training.
“I perform between 700 and 800 joint replacements per year,” Kapp said. “So for me, the learning curve becomes much shorter. I’m able to adopt newer techniques more readily. This kind of volume enables me to confer with other high-volume surgeons and discuss the latest technologies. Just because something’s new doesn’t mean it’s improved.
Before Peter Miskech consulted an orthopedic specialist for a possible knee replacement, he did his homework. He researched the training and experience of eight surgeons before choosing H. Kurtis Biggs, DO, a fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and founder of the Joint Replacement Institute in Naples.
