Dr. Philip “Flip” Clifford
Founder & CEO
We have perfected our treatment protocols over the last 5 years and now are able to perform total joint replacement surgeries in an outpatient setting. This greatly reduces our patient’s risk of infection as compared to having surgery in a traditional hospital.
Our experience in having performed over 14,000 procedures has allowed us to shorten the duration in which that our patients are under anesthesia. Additionally, our postoperative pain management has been refined to get our patients up and walking as quickly as possible.
Our postoperative rapid recovery protocol has our patients up and mobile shortly after waking from anesthesia. This increased mobility shortly after surgery puts our patients on a path to healing much faster than typical joint replacement surgeries.

“I had my surgery first thing in the morning, and was home by early evening, already walking”
“The entire experience from beginning to end was wonderful. I feel like 10 years have been added to my life and to be pain free is fantastic. I’m back to exercising, driving my car and playing full blast with my grandchildren!”
“Within 14 days after surgery I was walking with a little assistance from a cane and now am fully mobile and ready to start swinging a golf club 45 days after the surgery!”
“Dr. Clifford is an excellent surgeon, but also has a way to talk to and discuss the issues and concerns with his patients. I continue to tell everyone that asks, and some that don’t, how great it was working with him and what excellent results I had. I am very grateful I had him in my corner while going through these surgeries.”
“Dr. Clifford also insisted that I recuperate at home but that I go out for physical therapy. He said that he wanted his patients to “get up, get dressed and go out for physical therapy”. I believe that’s what saved me!”
“Dr. Clifford performed the second surgery with a fairly new and less invasive technique. What an amazing difference. I had the surgery or a Monday around noon and was home around 8pm the same night. ”
“No way! Was my first reaction to the idea that a hip replacement could be done as outpatient surgery. But now, having had both hips replaced six months apart and having returned home the same day for each, I am convinced, pleased, and walking around without pain for the first time in years.”
“I have never met another surgeon that truly loves what he does, cares about his patients and listens to what you have to say.”
