Don't delay your care

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. Charlie delayed having surgery on his knees for a couple of years, but when it started to restrict his activities, he knew it was time. He trusted that Dr. Donald Bassman and the orthopedic team at HSHS St. Joseph’s would help him get back to the golf game he loves.

Orthopedic expertise and experience

Just like he helped Charlie, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Donald Bassman is ready to help you get back to your active life. With over 40 years of experience, including 18 years serving as a team physician for the St. Louis Cardinals, Dr. Bassman provides orthopedic expertise second to none.

Quality you can trust

You can trust the quality of the orthopedic care you will receive as HSHS St. Joseph’s is highly ranked for overall care by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This demonstrates our commitment to elevating the quality, consistency and safety delivered to each and every patient.
