“The staff and I have been very much looking forward to moving into the new expansive suite, which will allow us to care for our patients more efficiently,” Dr. Mills said.

The orthopedic surgeon began providing care in the new suite on April 16.

Along with his new office, Dr. Mill has utilizes some of the newest orthopedic technology.

Earlier this year, Oswego Hospital installed a state-of-the-art surgical navigation system that helps more accurately align a knee implant with a patient’s specific anatomy during a total knee replacement surgery.

“I have had tremendous success with this equipment, as it allows me to place the components in the best possible position regardless of a patient’s previous surgeries, fractures or injuries,” said Dr. Mills.

Dr. Mills joined the medical staff of Oswego Hospital last fall.

He is an accomplished orthopedic surgeon, who has been board certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery since 2001.

He offers surgical management options for advanced arthritis with joint replacements, including total hip and knee replacements, as well as shoulder replacements.

Dr. Mills is a long standing proponent and practitioner of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) procedures, which involve specialized orthopedic equipment and training.
