With over 35 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 exactly what it takes to set our patients up for success. Whole Health JRI now practices at Edgewood Surgical Hospital, where they take infections seriously, and as a result, have one of the lowest infection rates in the state of Pennsylvania. We know that an infection can significantly impact a patient’s life both now and in the future; that’s why Edgewood takes numerous steps to prevent infections before, during, and after every single specialized orthopedic replacement surgery.

Benefits of Working with Whole Health, The Region’s Top Specialized Orthopedic Joint Replacement Center

Whole Health Joint Replacement Institute offers patients same-day hip and knee joint replacements, as well as more medically and orthopedically complex joint replacements. 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 the most versatile, comprehensive and customizable partial knee replacement system on the planet. Having completed over 1,200 total joint replacement surgeries each year — four times as many as any leading competitor — Whole Health knows what it takes to set our patients up for the best possible outcome. We work to 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.

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 hip replacement surgery. 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. Whatever your pain may be, Whole Health Joint Replacement can help provide long-lasting relief, along with proper education to prevent any additional injuries.

Patient Education For Shorter Recovery Times

Whole Health believes in thoroughly educating our patients about our procedures, which in turn leads to more successful outcomes, shorter recovery times, and healthier long-term lifestyles. Dr. Molli and Dr. Frndak have always been extremely dedicated to education and have found that it makes a huge positive impact on their patients after surgery. This allows them to have a better understanding of realistic expectations after surgery, which inevitably yields happier and more satisfied patients. Dr. Molli has performed over 300 educational seminars for patients in the past 10 years, and in addition to one-on-one education, these group seminars have been mandatory for every patient of Whole Health prior to every procedure we perform.

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!
