DR. JOHN KEGGI specializes in advanced techniques for hip and knee replacement. A graduate of University of Wisconsin Medical School, Madison, he further trained at Yale-New Haven Hospital and Yale University School of Medicine Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Residency Program. 

Dr. Keggi has 25 years’ experience in performing and teaching direct anterior approach (DAA) hip replacement, a specialized technique that spares the major walking muscles, generally allowing patients a rapid return to activity, work and family life. While DAA surgery has gained popularity in recent years, Dr. Keggi remains one of the most experienced practitioners of this approach in the U.S. and internationally. Birmingham hip resurfacing via the anterior approach is a procedure Dr. Keggi offers for young patients with high demand activities.

He has authored many scientific articles and frequently lectures around the country and around the world including England, Australia, France and Spain while teaching these methods to fellow surgeons.

Dr. Keggi thanks his professional and experienced office staff and hospital teams for their focus on patient education, care, comfort and rapid recovery. “We are blessed with compassionate and talented staff at every level,” Dr. Keggi says.
