FAQ's for HSHS St. Anthony's Hospital

Don't delay your care

We don’t want anything to stop you from living your best life and painful joints can keep you from that. While no one wants to have surgery, we hope you listen to your body telling you when it’s time to talk to your doctor about joint replacement surgery. Nicholas almost waited too long to have his hip surgery but now is he is so glad he did it.

Expertise and experience

Just like he helped Nicholas, HSHS Medical Group orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Powell is ready to help you get back to your active life, with expertise and experience second to none. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Powell treats each person as an individual rather than just a case.
