BiographyDr. Bruce Summerville is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in treating conditions of the hip, knee, and shoulder. He provides care for conditions such as arthritis, trauma and fractures, tears of the shoulder ligaments, cartilage and tendons (rotator cuff, bicep, and labrum). Knee surgeries include arthroscopy for meniscal cartilage and ACL tears. He performs primary and revision hip, knee, and shoulder joint replacement including partial knee replacement and ASI (anterior) hip replacement. Partial knee replacement allows for a faster recovery with fewer risks or complications. Anterior hip replacement may result in faster rehabilitation and reduces the risk of dislocation after surgery. Dr. Summerville still performs traditional total knee and hip replacement in appropriate cases. Ever since his Fellowship in Joint Replacement Surgery he continues to stay up to date on the latest techniques and technologies in that subspecialty as well as other conditions and treatments in Sports Medicine and Trauma. His treatment of complex conditions requires significant attention and knowledge for those patients but he provides the same care and compassion for less serious conditions as well. His goal is to treat individuals without surgery if possible but in cases where surgery is needed he provides his expertise and technical skills for that purpose. He takes the time to explain each patient’s condition and treatment options thoroughly so that patients can participate in decisions about their care. He has a passion for the field of Orthopedics and compassion for his patients.
