“I chose Orthopedics because it allows me to make a very tangible difference in the lives of my patients to restore function and relieve pain,” said Dr. North. “I specialized in joint reconstruction because hip and knee replacement are two of the best surgical interventions out there. Debilitating arthritic pain is virtually eliminated, in many instances, by a well-performed arthroplasty. Restoring function and relieving pain – that’s what I do.”
