Dr. Sean Sutphen is an Orthopaedic Surgeon with specialized fellowship training in hip and knee joint replacement and complex revision joint replacement. He uses minimally invasive surgical techniques with a special interest in anterior approach hip replacement surgery and computer-assisted surgery, though he treats all aspects of musculoskeletal care (fractures, arthritis conditions, etc.).

Dr. Sutphen’s approach to caring for patients with disorders of the hip and knee involves personalized treatments, both operative and non-operative, that are supported by the latest evidence.
