John Hur

Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. John Hur’s greatest joy and reward is seeing his patients return to the happy, active lifestyle they deserve. He understands that it takes more than surgical expertise to improve a person’s quality of life – which is why he takes his time to address questions and concerns before and after every surgery. Dr. Hur is an expert at the Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) to hip replacement, a technique that requires no muscle cutting, which improves recovery with less pain. He constantly seeks to incorporate the most cutting-edge technology into all areas of his practice.

When he is not at work, Dr. Hur enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife, whom he met on their first day of medical school, enjoy golfing, skiing and traveling with their two daughters and son.
