Welcome to the Office of Dr. Tim Conlan
Canton’s Orthopedic Joint Specialist since 1996
Total joint surgeon Dr. Tim Conlan has been performing total joint replacements in Canton, Ohiosince 1996. He’s been a leader in embracing new innovations in total hip and knee replacement surgery to benefit his patients and his skills as a fellowship-trained joint specialist surpass that of most orthopedic surgeons in the area.
Dr. Conlan specializes in outpatient total hip and knee replacement and performs these procedures at the Ohio Specialty Surgical Suites, an outpatient surgical center conveniently located off I-77 in North Canton, Ohio.
He is one of the first and most experienced orthopedic surgeons in the area to utilize the Direct Anterior Approach for total hip replacement, as well as VISIONAIRE Custom Cutting Guides and VERILAST Technology for total knee replacement.
Dr. Conlan has always embraced minimally invasive surgical techniques for hip and knee joint replacement and has adopted techniques and regimens to minimize patients’ post-operative pain. These approaches, along with new and improved anesthetic techniques, have greatly improved patients’ initial post-operative pain level and minimized immediate post-operative side effects of medications, thus allowing for a rapid recovery at home.
The outpatient same-day surgery method allows for a personalized patient-driven experience with many advantages, eliminating the need for hospitalization for healthy, active patients and improving your recovery.
Dr. Conlan emphasizes that these techniques have changed the entire total joint replacement experience; which is much different than how it was done a few years ago.
“As a patient of mine you will get high quality personalized attention and guidance throughout your total joint replacement experience. We no longer treat patients having these procedures as if they are sick – you can recover safely in your own home – and many now are.”
Dr. Conlan has given many talks to community groups and will continue to educate the community and his patients on these new and innovative procedures. He always accepts new patients with hip and knee arthritis and will personally meet with you and discuss your treatment options.
Dr. Conlan also performs hip and knee replacements at Mercy Medical Center, Aultman Hospital, and Affinity Hospital. He accepts the majority of insurances.
