Dr. Noble has a special interest in restoring the function and mobility
of patients with knee and hip arthritis. He works with patients to develop
a treatment program that best suits their current condition and will often
provide multiple non-operative interventions through the use of medications,
injections, bracing and physical therapy.
When joint replacement is indicated, Dr. Noble utilizes less invasive techniques
in combination with several peri-operative pain relieving modalities.
Dr. Noble performs direct anterior total hip replacement with the Hana
table, robotic assisted partial knee resurfacing (Mako Technology), and
muscle sparing total knee replacement.
