Orthopedic Surgery, Board Eligible Adult Reconstruction Fellowship Area of Focus in Joint Replacement
Joseph M. Nessler, MD, is a fellowship-trained adult reconstruction surgeon. He manages all general orthopedic conditions with an emphasis on primary and revision hip and knee replacements. Dr. Nessler performs robotic-assisted hip and knee replacements using minimally invasive techniques, such as the subvastus approach to the knee and the direct anterior approach to the hip. He also has interest in complex hip and knee revision surgery for those patients who are still experiencing pain after their first joint replacement. Dr. Nessler participates in the TTCO EXCEL Surgery and Recovery Program.
Prior to joining TCO, Dr. Nessler completed his fellowship at the University of Louisville and his residency at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their two dogs — hiking, camping, and enjoying the outdoors.
