Dr. John Keggi graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin at Madison where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin Medical School. He did his general surgery internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He completed a fellowship in pediatric orthopedics at Newington Children’s Hospital and a fellowship in adult hip and knee reconstruction at Waterbury Hospital.
Dr. Keggi specializes in direct anterior hip replacement and has more than 20 years’ experience with this minimally invasive technique. Many studies report better outcomes with anterior approach surgery, allowing patients to return to activities sooner than with other techniques. He also specializes in knee replacement surgery with blood-saving technologies and methods that can reduce or eliminate transfusions. Dr. Keggi teaches these techniques to surgeons all over the world and his work is often published in scientific articles and books.
He performs most of his surgeries at the Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute (CJRI), part of Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford. CJRI is a “well-organized hospital within a hospital,” says Dr. Keggi. “We work with the same teams every day which is a tremendous benefit for our patients.”
Dr. Keggi sees patients of all ages and finds joint surgery becoming more common especially among active baby boomers. “The blessing is that we live at a time when there are many, many choices,” he says.
