Philip A.G. Karpos, MD

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement Specialist

My name is Philip Karpos, and I have over 20 years of experience in orthopaedic surgery. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering which is helpful for understanding more about the workings of prosthetic devices used in joint replacement. In addition to adult reconstructive surgery, I’m especially interested in knee arthroscopy. I find it gratifying to be able to help people return to greater mobility.

Away from work, I spend my free time with my wife and two sons, enjoying a variety of sports and outdoor activities.
