Clinic and Surgical Services

Dr. Morton’s Approach

Dr. Morton is one of Hawaii’s premier orthopedic surgeons. As a surgeon, he provides services to patients from Oahu, Big Island, and neighboring Hawaiian Island with advanced treatments for a range of hip and knee issues. Dr. Morton’s specializations include problems arising from arthritis, trauma or fractures, occupational and sports-related injuries. He has a background in robotic joint replacements as well as revision hip/knee replacements.

One of the most common procedures Dr. Morton performs is joint replacement surgery, particularly of the hip and knees. This is where a damaged or arthritic joint is removed and replaced with a prosthesis, often made of plastic, metal, or ceramic. The goal of these procedures is to cure deformity or relieve pain, allowing the patient to live a more active lifestyle. He is active in research and uses robotic-assisted joint replacements to improve the outcomes of his patients who undergo a hip or knee replacement.

Dr. Morton also treats patients who require lower extremity joint revisions, a more complex surgery that involves the removal of a failed original implant. Such procedures are often done to solve issues related to megaprosthesis, infections, arthrofibrosis, and periprosthetic fractures. Prior to recommending the replacement of a joint, we will consider the best nonoperative and operative treatments available, providing patients with a comprehensive evaluation paired with a holistic treatment plan.
