Total Joint Replacement
Dr. Scott M. Eskildsen is a fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in total joint replacement. Dr. Eskildsen is a member of the American Orthopaedic Association, the American Association of Hip & Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). Dr. Eskildsen has a special interest in restoring the function and mobility of patients with knee and hip arthritis through Total Joint Replacement.
He works with patients to develop an orthopedic treatment program that best suits their current condition and will often provide multiple non-operative interventions through the use of medications, injections, bracing and physical therapy.
