Biography

Dr. Kris J. Alden is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon who is fellowship trained in hip and knee reconstruction. He completed a dual degree program in which he received his M.D. and Ph.D. concurrently at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His Ph.D. thesis in biophysics garnered the Outstanding Thesis Award for research excellence upon his graduation. After graduation, Dr. Alden completed a residency in orthopaedic surgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Alden began his fellowship in hip and knee reconstruction surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. While there, he trained in the latest approaches to hip and knee replacement, minimally invasive surgery, and complex revision joint replacement.

With a particular interest in using innovative techniques, Dr. Alden strives to achieve the best results for active patients with hip and knee arthritis, offering both non-surgical and surgical treatments.

Dr. Alden specializes in the direct anterior approach to total hip replacement surgery. This is a minimally invasive technique that provides less discomfort, a faster recovery, and enhanced mobility for patients undergoing hip surgery. He also performs customized knee replacements which allow the surgeon to tailor the surgery to a patient’s unique knee anatomy, reducing the risk of misalignment. These technologies improve the patient’s outcome by extending implant longevity and helping the patient regain an active lifestyle. Dr. Alden performs complex revision surgeries including direct anterior hip revision surgery, distal femur replacement, and total femur replacement.

Dr. Alden strives to significantly improve the quality of life for his patients, focusing on increasing their level of activity and mobility. He dedicates much time during appointments to answering questions and explaining reasoning for recommended care. Dr. Alden and his team do the utmost to provide you with highest level of care.
