After completing an orthopedic surgery residency and then fellowship in joint replacement at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Dr. Biggs entered into private practice in Massillon, Ohio. His joint replacement practice quickly grew to well over 400 joint replacements per year. The practice developed into a tertiary referral center for other orthopedic surgeons who utilized Dr. Biggs' expertise in revision joint reconstruction surgery. He was instrumental in the development of two, hospital based, joint replacement centers as well as providing daily education for orthopedic surgery residents.
During his time in Ohio, Dr. Biggs served as a national instructor for orthopedic surgeons, teaching and developing their surgical skills utilizing minimally invasive joint replacement. His practice also served as a site for multi-center investigational studies for developing new implants and procedures.
He continues to serve as a national instructor for knee and hip replacement including hip resurfacing surgery. He serves as an advisor for developing new technologies in joint replacements as well as collecting information on patient satisfaction and surgical outcomes.
Since moving from Ohio, Dr. Biggs and his four children have enjoyed becoming active members in the community and look forward to living in the Naples area for many years to come. The Biggs family enjoys many outdoor activities ranging from golf to motocross.
Dr. Kurtis Biggs, the founder of The Joint Replacement Institute, brings the experience of thousands of successful joint replacements to Southwest Florida.
