Bert Parcells, M.D. – Joint Replacement

Book An Appointment

Dr. Parcells believes in treating each of his patients as an individual.  Every painful hip and every painful knee is different and thus requires a treatment tailored to that person.

Dr. Parcells attended the University of Pennsylvania as an undergraduate, was inducted into the national medical honors society when graduating from medical school, completed his orthopedic training at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and received advanced fellowship training in the prevention and treatment of arthritis, including joint arthroscopy and joint replacement surgery.

Hip and knee arthritis occurs when the cartilage wears out and this causes pain.  Whenever possible Dr. Parcells offers treatments to eliminate the pain, preserve the remaining cartilage, and avoid larger surgery.  However, once these treatments fail to give pain relief, Dr. Parcells is trained in the Direct Anterior approach for hip replacement, as well as partial knee and total knee replacement, using traditional methods and the Mako robot.  He is also trained in complex revision joint replacement surgery.

Dr. Parcells enjoys camping, mountaineering and spending time with his family. He also enjoys medical teaching and has written a textbook on Joint Replacement Surgery targeted for orthopedic surgeons in training (

Dr. Parcells is currently accepting new patients.
