“The most important thing to me is understanding what each patient wants and delivering care that provides the best opportunity for patients to feel they’ve improved.”
Dr. William Robb is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in adult knee reconstruction for patients with degenerative, inflammatory or post-traumatic arthritis. He performs arthroscopic knee surgery, total and partial knee replacements, and total knee revision surgery. He has experience in less invasive and computer-assisted knee replacement surgery.
Dr. Robb is a careful listener who takes time to both care for his patients on a personal level and understand their expectations. He tailors his treatment plan individually to each patient’s desired outcomes. In many cases, he is able to treat the condition using non-surgical techniques such as activity modification, physical therapy, medications and knee injections.
