Dr. Firestone is a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and has served on the editorial board of the Journal of Arthroplasty since 1990.

Throughout my career as a heart and vascular surgeon, I have always pursued innovation. Advances in technology have made procedures less invasive, allowing patients an easier recovery and a faster return to normal activity. When I was ready for my hip to be replaced, my research led me to select the anterior hip replacement technique and Dr. Ted Firestone at the Joint Replacement Center of Scottsdale. Six hours after my surgery, I walked the full circle around the orthopedic floor and less than 2 weeks later was back in my own operating room at the Arizona Heart Hospital. When I look back at my experience with my other hip replacement ten years earlier, there is simply no comparison. -Dr. Edward DietrichAfter looking at our website, I encourage you to give the office a call with any questions.
