Christine Pui, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon - Joint Replacement  


I enjoy caring for patients who have a wide variety of bone, joint and muscle problems and have a special interest in patients who have hip and knee arthritis. My goal is to improve my patients' quality of life by relieving pain and returning them to the highest level of function possible. I focus on total and complex hip and knee replacements, partial knee replacements and minimally invasive surgery. I have completed additional subspeciality training in Joint Replacement Surgery and had the opportunity to train at the #1 ranked hospital for orthopedics in the country. Not only do I strive to be an excellent technical surgeon, but I also want to provide my patients with a comfortable environment where they feel they are truly listened to and treated with care, compassion and respect.
