Jeffrey A. Geller, MD, specializes in arthritic disorders of the hip and knee. He has extensive training in joint replacements and performs surgery using some of the latest and most advanced minimally invasive techniques. These procedures include partial knee replacements, anterior hip replacements, hip resurfacing, as well as minimally invasive hip and knee replacements. Dr. Geller performs both primary joint replacement surgery and revisions of failed or painful joint replacements, but only after considering all non-operative treatment options. He also specializes in trauma of the lower extremity including hip fractures, fractures around joint replacements, and fractures related to osteoporosis. Dr. Geller’s other clinical focus is pre-emptive pain control, i.e. preventing post-op surgical pain before it can start, to enable a faster, more comfortable rehab process.

Dr. Geller is actively involved in orthopedic research and education and is conducting several large-scale research projects on some of the most advanced topics in joint reconstruction. In addition to teaching medical students and residents, he lectures at national orthopedic conferences and has authored numerous textbook chapters and peer-reviewed articles.
