My name is Todd Swanson and I am a Total Joint Replacement surgeon in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since 1997 I have performed over 4000 minimally invasive total hip and knee procedures. I teach these techniques to surgeons around the world and report my own research demonstrating the benefits of these procedures.
I graduated from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and attended Washington University Medical School in St. Louis, Missouri. I completed my general orthopedic training at the University of California, Davis in Sacramento, California and specialized in total joint replacement of the hip and knee during a fellowship at the Metropolitan/Mount Sinai Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Since finishing my fellowship in 1991, I have practiced with Desert Orthopedic Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. I direct the Desert Orthopedic Research Foundation, a not-for-profit research organization working to benefit patients with hip and knee problems. Additionally, I direct the Desert Orthopedic Center Adult Reconstructive Fellowship program, a post-residency training program that prepares orthopedic surgery graduates for a career in total joint replacement surgery. I am also serving as a consultant for orthopedic implant companies and I've developed several patents for joint implants and instrumentation.
Board certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, I focus my practice on total joint replacements and joint preserving procedures for the hip and knee. As head of the Swanson Hip and Knee Center of Excellence and Research Institute, an organization located in Las Vegas, Nevada I've recently launched a program to develop and promote cutting edge techniques and technologies to alleviate hip and knee pain.
