Dr. Jimmy ChowHip & Knee Reconstruction

Dr. Chow is a board certified hip and knee specialist with dual-fellowship training in Adult Reconstruction “total joints” and Arthroscopic “sports” Surgery.

Dr. Chow has been a key inventor of the SuperPATH® total hip procedure, which is a hybrid combination of two tissue-sparing techniques: PATH® (created by Dr. Brad Pennenberg) and SuperCap™ (created by Dr. Stephen Murphy). The first SuperPATH® procedures were performed in September 2008 as a collaboration between Dr. Chow, Dr. Harbinder Chadha & Dr. William Kurtz. These surgeons have been credited with the inception of SuperPATH®. Dr. Chow’s work in technique and tooling design is now patent pending, and comprises key components of SuperPATH’s current form. He has lectured internationally regarding his experience with microinvasive total hip replacement, and he routinely trains surgeons on the technique. As of September 2014, Dr. Chow has performed over 1,000 SuperPATH® total hip procedures.

Dr. Chow was Arizona’s first robotic knee surgeon, performing Arizona’s first Makoplasty partial knee resurfacing in 2010.  He has helped launch multiple technologies in total knee replacement from several companies, including computer prenavigation, or “patient-matched”, technologies, as well as state-of-the-art knee replacement designs.  He continues to lecture and teach internationally on the topics of minimally invasive, tourniquet-less, and rapid-recovery knee replacement.

Currently Dr. Chow is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Academy of Hip and Knee Surgeons, the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the International Society of Arthroscopy for Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine and the International Society for Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery.  He also serves on the regional board for the Arthritis Foundation, and sits on the board of directors for the Orthopaedic Research Foundation of Southern Illinois.
