Dr. Kuesis teaches the direct anterior approach for total hip replacements and patient specific instrumentation for his total knee replacements and is on the cutting edge of same day joint replacement surgery while operating out of Geneva Surgical Suites.

“I had the privilege of visiting Geneva Surgical Suites Surgery center with Dr. Kuesis to observe his workflow and learn about his approach, process, techniques and methods utilized to create a highly efficient outpatient total joint replacement program. As a busy fellowship trained total joint surgeon myself, it is always a pleasure to observe a surgeon with his expertise, efficiency and skill who is performing at the top of his game. I am always amazed when I can learn so much from another surgeon. Dr. Kuesis, thank you for the wonderful experience.”

Less pain, faster recovery
