INOV8 Orthopedics
As a board-certified and fellowship-trained joint replacement surgeon, Stefan
Kreuzer, MD, has pioneered the development in Minimally-Invasive and
Computer-Assisted hip and knee replacement surgery. He is actively involved
in training and has been invited to lecture and demonstrate his surgical
techniques for surgeons throughout the United States, Asia and Europe. Dr.
Kreuzer is currently on multiple design teams for the development of the next
generation of knee and hip implants, and acts as consultant to many device
companies to assist them with further advancing care for patients. With many
research and academic interests in addition to his clinical practice, he has
devoted his career to improving the quality-of-life for the patient in need of
joint replacement surgery.

He also serves on several medical advisory boards, most notably as a board
member of ISTA and as the chairman of the Masters Course on Anterior Hip
Replacement Surgery with ICJR in Houston.

A native of Switzerland, Dr. Kreuzer moved to the United States in 1983. He
graduated from medical school at the University of Texas in San Antonio in
1995, and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of
Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. He then undertook a fellowship in
Adult Joint Reconstruction at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston,
Texas in 2001.

Dr. Kreuzer has performed over 4,000 anterior hip replacements and is one of
the very few experts in the world to also perform revision total hip replacement
through the anterior approach. Dr. Kreuzer is also a world expert on robotic
joint replacement surgery; he was on the development team of the MAKO
robotic system for anterior hip replacement and MAKO total knee
replacement, and was one of three surgeons to participate in the initial FDA
approval study. He is currently working with the next-generation of robotic
surgery with Think Surgical, as a principal investigator in their FDA approval
clinical trial for total knee replacement.

Dr. Kreuzer is also revolutionizing the field of outpatient total joint surgery by
working to develop care paths and protocols to allow minimally invasive joint
replacement surgery being performed in the outpatient setting, with the aim of
quicker recovery, less complications, and quicker return to a functional
lifestyle. He is working with software companies to develop a care path with
the help of activity monitors and smart phones to facilitate a quicker road to
