What's New?


Dr. Stanat specializes in Total Joint Replacement.

His focus is managing prior total hip and knee replacements that might require revision from pain, loosening or infection. When needed, osteotomies, allograft reconstruction and tumor prosthesis are utilized. For primary joint replacement, he utilizes muscle sparing approaches, bone preserving implants, and where possible computer navigation techniques, such as MAKOplasty.

Appointments for Doctor Stanat can be made at either our North Franklin or Niantic locations.
