Dr. Kanellakos says, “I am devoted to the well-being and interests of my patients. In addition to using the latest surgical techniques when caring for them, I explain advantages and disadvantages of procedures so that patients can make informed decisions about their care. Helping my patients return to an active, pain-free lifestyle with joint replacement surgery is gratifying.”
