Suffering from chronic neck, back, knee, or hip pain? Have you tried conservative treatments and failed at finding relief? If you’re experiencing chronic pain in your joints due to an injury or arthritis, you understand the effect that it has on your everyday life. When arthritis or injuries are severe, you may be a good candidate for a hip or knee replacement.

Whole Health Orthopedic Institute offers specialized orthopedic services and same-day joint replacements. Having completed over 1,200 total joint replacement surgeries in a year — four times as many as any leading competitor — we know what it takes to set our patients up for the best possible outcome. Whole Health says yes to those in need of a joint replacement and no to quick fixes that may produce long-term complications. We offer patients at higher risk, the chance to medically optimize themselves in order to undergo a joint replacement operation and reduce or even eliminate potential complications. Whole Health believes in thoroughly educating our patients about our specialized orthopedic services, which in turn leads to more successful outcomes, shorter recovery times, and healthier long-term lifestyles. Patients can work with us by modifying their behaviors and strengthening their mental health alongside their physical health.

Total Hip Replacements | Direct Anterior Hip Replacement

If you’re experiencing severe hip or back pain, a decrease in your range of motion, or stiffness that will not subside, you may be a candidate for a hip replacement surgery. As a leader in specialized orthopedic services, Whole Health offers Direct Anterior, Posterior, and Direct Lateral hip replacements. While the Direct Anterior Approach can be very challenging for any surgeon from a technical standpoint, it is also the most minimally invasive approach to completing a total hip replacement. Dr. Molli and his experienced team at Whole Health has completed over 2,500 of these same-day hip replacement procedures and counting.

Total & Partial Knee Replacements | Kinematic Alignment & The Moto Partial Knee System

If you experience severe knee pain during activity and at rest in addition to a decreased range of motion and stiffness that doesn’t go away after non-surgical treatment, you may be a candidate for knee replacement surgery. At Whole Health, we have performed over 200 total knee replacements in a single year, and fortunately for our patients, none of them required a primary care referral. Our own Dr. Molli is also one of the four creators of the medial unicompartmental replacement known as the Moto Partial Knee System, which is capable of fitting 10 different femur sizes. Should you require a total knee arthroplasty down the road, our partial knee replacements can be easily converted by our expert team of physicians, surgeons, and post-operative professionals.

Shoulder Surgery & Sports Medicine

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive joint surgery designed to repair a damaged joint, maximize its function, and preserve its lifespan as long as possible. This type of surgery is most commonly performed on knees and shoulders. An arthroscopic surgical procedure is typically performed using small (~1cm) incisions around the joint. The nature of this procedure allows it to be done as an outpatient/same-day surgery and does not require an overnight stay in the hospital. Benefits of arthroscopic surgery include:

  • less pain
  • minimal scarring (improved cosmesis)
  • less stiffness
  • earlier rehabilitation
  • minimal blood loss
  • the ability to obtain the most anatomic repair possible

This combination of attributes is what allows athletes to return to their sport quickly and makes the procedure appealing to people who are looking to get back to work or their hobbies without pain as quickly as possible. Dr. Milam underwent additional fellowship training in arthroscopic surgery and has extensive clinical experience in shoulder and knee arthroscopy, as this has been the primary focus of his practice since 2007.

Had my left knee done 6 weeks ago, no pain, cant say enough good about your staff.  Have recommended 5 people to your trusted care.  Great job! Having my right knee done next, and looking forward to it!

Thomas G.

Dr. Molli and staff are fantastic, on time, professional, and personable.  Staff at Edgewood were also very professional.  Made the surgical experience as enjoyable as a surgery can be.  I was willing to stay an extra day for the meals and staff!

Mike D.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and found Dr. Molli’s protocol not difficult at all.  The staff both at Whole Health and Edgewood were helpful, considerate and caring.

Jane C.

My surgery went very well and from beginning to the end I was very comfortable with all the stuff I came in contact with.  I was truly impressed with the organization of the office and also Dr. Molli’s expertise and bedside manner – Great Experience!

Douglas D.

If I would have known how much better I would have felt I would have done it much sooner!  Great Job Dr. Molli!

When you can have a partial knee replacement at 10:30am and be home making yourself an omelet by 5:00pm, you know your surgeon has done a good job!  This was the 2nd knee replacement Dr. Molli has done for me .  I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else.  We’re very fortunate that Dr. Molli returned to our area to provide world class care right here in Crawford County.

My hip replacement experience was very efficient and easy.  Needing a hip is much more painful than getting a hip.  Thank You!

Michael K.

I had both of my hips replaced last fall, the second one completed a year ago yesterday. We have since moved to Virginia, but I wanted to send a picture of me up on the ladder, painting the barn, so Dr. Molli could see how well I am doing! I’m so thankful for the great job that Dr. Molli did! If he doesn’t remember me, I am the farmer whose hips he had to chisel out since they hadn’t moved for years! Thank you again.

Erich B.

This medical procedure and related activity was, by far, the absolute best I have encountered!  I am without reservation, 100% satisfied with my surgical outcome and will return for my other knee.  Thank you to all staff involved.

Walter K.

Everyone was pleasant and professional.  They were concerned about pain level and were accommodating.  Pleased with the results of my new knees!
