Our Orthopedic Experience & Joint Replacement Expertise
With nearly 50 years of combined surgical experience between our surgeons (and 60 years between our three board-certified physician assistants), the Whole Health Joint Replacement Institute knows what it takes to set our patients up for success. We assess the entirety of our patients’ health, paying attention not only to their physical wellbeing but to their mental and emotional wellbeing as well. As one of the country’s leading experts in joint replacement surgeries, we believe in the importance of sharing knowledge peer to peer in order to improve the lives of patients globally.
Whole Health’s dedication to unmatched orthopedic care goes far beyond performing joint replacements; our own Dr. Molli was actually one of the four creators/design surgeons of the Medacta MOTO Partial Knee System. Used for partial knee replacements (a procedure we specialize in), this system is a custom surgical technique and implant designed to balance the ligaments of each particular patient’s knee. The system uses a specially designed piece that is capable of fitting 10 different femur sizes and 8 different tibia sizes, with plastic thickness options designed to match the needs of our patients. To date, Dr. Molli has performed over 2,000 partial knee replacements, and nearly half of them have utilized the Medacta MOTO system.
Our Relationship with Medacta, An Educational Orthopedics Company
At Whole Health, we like to say that we operate as an educational company that happens to perform high-quality hip and knee replacements. We work closely with Medacta to provide specialized training to doctors and students globally. Medacta is an educational orthopedics company that also manufactures innovative medical devices. When observing the philosophies of both companies, it’s easy to see why we work so well together. Medacta operates with three focuses in mind: patient wellbeing, medical education, and healthcare system sustainability. This is largely intertwined with the company’s history and the fact that it is the only medical device company founded by a patient.
Medacta and Whole Health share a passion for medical education while employing a “patient first construct,” and because of this, Whole Health is proud to utilize Medacta medical devices for operations such as total hip, total knee, and partial knee arthroplasties. Both companies are dedicated to finding the perfect device and surgical technique for each and every patient, while Whole Health’s procedures are rooted in strong, reasonable, and proven surgical and scientific techniques.
Had hip replacement surgery today… back home and feeling great. Very grateful to have someone of this caliber in Crawford County. From the check in person to Dr. Molli I cannot thank you all enough for your excellent care!
Dr. Frndak is an amazing surgeon, caring, and devoted to his patients. My first experience with him was in 1994, when, as a new surgeon, he re-replaced my total knee , and most recently, in October of 2019, when he replaced my husband’s hip. I have the utmost faith in him and his skills, and can’t recommend him enough.
My father had a wonderful experience with Dr. Molli and staff! He came out of surgery and was very grateful for how well he was cared for and respected as a patient!! Highly recommend this team!! Thank you for all you do for our community!
My dad went in December 30 for a total knee replacement. February 14th he turned 85 and is back at full movement and extremely happy with the results. Thank you Dr. Molli and your staff for a job well done and helping to keep our dad active.
I am so thankful Meadville has such a highly qualified orthopedic surgeon such as Dr. Frndak. I didn’t have to do any searching for a surgeon as he has a great reputation in Meadville and “word of mouth” sometimes says it all! I wouldn’t trust any other to perform my two hip replacements, and in the near future; I will be having both knees replaced. He did a wonderful job with my hip replacements although mine weren’t “typical” hip replacement as I had Congenital Hip Dysplasia with my hip sockets not fully formed. He did a wonderful job in getting the hips in line and where they should be. His medical knowledge and ethics make him an awesome physician. There is no need to go out of town to have any joint replacements.

I had my partial knee replacement surgery 2/26/20. They give you so much information and you really learn about the procedure before surgery. They provide you with medications that are thorough for every aspect of your healing process. I feel like I was taken care from the beginning (pre-op), surgery and after care. It was an odd time during the quarantine but I knew they were just a phone call away. I cannot say enough about what a positive experience this was. I’m feeling good and looking forward to getting stronger. Such a great feeling of finally being out of constant pain. Thank you Dr. Molli and crew. I’m so happy with you all! I’m getting my life back and it’s a wonderful feeling. Thank you so much.
I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying my new knees, I am able to go on long walks and be active in other ways with NO PAIN! You did a super job!
My partial knee surgery and recovery were MADE EASY because of you! Thank you for being the BEST!
He put my mind at ease and I never once doubted anything he said. He was so good to me and I have had terrific results because of him. Thank God I investigated before I had the surgery because I feel I got the very best doctor and because of my good outcome many, many people I know have gone to him for surgery or advice. Thank you Dr. Frndak!
