Stephen M. Howell, M.D. Specializing in Kinematically Aligned Total Knee Replacement & Anatomic ACL Reconstruction
This website is dedicated to educating patients, orthopedic surgeons, and allied health professionals with our management of patients considering kinematic total knee replacement (TKR) and reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
Dr. Howell is an innovator in the field of total knee replacement (TKR). His preferred surgical method for TKR is ‘kinematic alignment’, a technique he developed in 2005, which creates more consistency and reliability in patient outcomes. An independent study published in 2014 confirms that kinematically aligned TKA provides better pain relief, better function, and better flexion than conventional or mechanically-aligned TKR. NBC News has reported that Dr Howell’s readmission or complication rate after TKR is among the lowest in the nation and northern California.
