John A. Froehlich, MD, is the program director of the Total Joint
Center at The Miriam Hospital. He is a specialist in the areas of adult
reconstructive surgery and sports medicine, and he operates on patients
of all ages suffering from a variety of shoulder, hip and knee ailments.

less pain, shorter rehabilitation and a quicker return to work. Included
among the reconstructive procedures are: shoulder surgeries for rotator
cuff disease, instability and impingement; knee surgeries for tissue
repair; corrective procedures for arthritis, including joint
replacement; and hip surgery including hip replacements. He is also
involved in research on improving cartilage properties and the quality
of joint replacements.
Froehlich is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons,
American College of Surgeons and the American Board of Orthopaedic
Surgeons. He is also a clinical assistant professor of orthopaedics at
The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. He is on staff at
