Dr. Chan is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in complex fracture reconstruction as well as hip and knee replacement.
In addition to performing outpatient fracture surgery in the ambulatory surgical center (ASC) setting, Dr. Chan was the first surgeon (and the only one in Miami-Dade or Broward County) to perform both anterior approach total hip replacement and total knee replacement in an ASC.
Dr. Chan is the highest volume surgeon in Miami-Dade and Broward County for both anterior approach total hip replacement and total knee replacement. He was recently recognized by Becker’s Healthcare ASC Review as being one of the “10 ASC Joint Replacement Surgeons to Know” in the US.
After utilizing minimally-invasive surgical techniques and multi-modal pain management protocols, most patients can walk within an hour of surgery and go home within a few hours, and having physical therapy the same day.
The patient experience has been overwhelmingly positive and Dr. Chan continues to lead the way in what is quickly becoming the standard of care for patients with debilitating hip and knee arthritis.
