Dr. John Keggi specializes in advanced techniques for hip and knee replacement.
Dr. Keggi has more than 20 years’ experience in performing and teaching direct anterior approach hip replacement, a specialized technique that spares the major walking muscles, allowing patients a rapid return to activity, work and family life. With the direct anterior approach patients can often avoid many of the restrictions imposed by traditional replacement methods. He also offers Birmingham hip resurfacing via the anterior approach for young patients with high demand activities, heavy occupational requirements or vigorous recreational sports. Dr. Keggi has authored many scientific articles on these topics and frequently lectures around the country while teaching these methods to fellow surgeons.
He is also a leader in knee replacement procedures that speed recovery and help patients gain mobility quickly. For both hip and knee replacement, Dr. Keggi employs advanced bearings and implants matched to the patients activities and lifestyle. His professional office staff and experienced hospital teams focus on patient education, comfort and rapid recovery. Dr. Keggi performs most of his surgeries at the Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute (CJRI) on the campus of Saint Francis Hospital in Hartford, which he describes as “a well-organized hospital within a hospital”. “We work with the same teams every day, which is a tremendous benefit for our patients”, Dr. Keggi says. CJRI was recently ranked as “Top 5” in the nation for patient safety and patient satisfaction by a leading consumer organization and is recognized as a leading institution in New England.
Dr. Keggi is available for consultation at Orthopaedics New England in the Middlebury, Farmington and New Milford offices.
“Our goal is to find the right treatment for patients so they can say, ‘Life is good again!’
