Diren Arsoy, MD, is an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee, including primary and revision hip and knee replacements, complex hip problems after trauma, and hip preserving procedures that can help young people avoid a hip replacement later in life.
Dr. Arsoy completed orthopaedic surgery residency at Mayo Clinic, followed by an adult reconstruction and joint replacement fellowship at Stanford University. He then pursued additional training in complex acetabular and pelvic reconstruction at Hospital for Special Surgery. Dr. Arsoy was awarded the Hip Society’s M. E. Mueller Foundation of North America, where he was able to learn the most advanced surgical techniques in hip preservation from surgeons in Europe.
Dr. Arsoy believes every patient is unique and many are nervous when they find out they need surgery. He takes a holistic approach to treatment in order to accommodate each patient’s needs. “I connect with my patients by learning who they are and where they are from,” he says. “I explain to them in a simple a language what clinical problem they have. This helps to establish a connection and ease their anxiety.”
In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Arsoy pursues research aimed at continually improving patient outcomes. He is especially interested in ways to minimize pain after hip and knee surgery, and to determine the best strategies to decrease complications such as blood clots and infection that can occur after a hip or knee surgery.
