Program Director, Total Joint Center

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. Many of these procedures are done arthroscopically, which often means 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 both Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital.
