Andrew T. Garber, MD is a total joint specialist who performs joint replacement surgery, or hip and knee replacements. Dr. Garber performs anterior hip replacement and robotic knee replacement.
Dr. Garber was drawn to orthopedic surgery because it enables him to improve peoples’ quality of life.
“In my third year of residency I did my hip and knee replacement rotation and was able to see how much and for how long patients struggle. After doing the hip and knee replacements you see how much improvement they have. It’s very rewarding to know that I’ve been able to help them improve their quality of life.”
As much as a joint replacement can help a patient, Dr Garber understands that each patient needs to make their own decisions about their treatment.
“As much as I love surgery, I understand that it’s always the patient’s choice as far as what’s to be done and when it’s to be done. I really focus on the fact that it is their decision.”
