Dr. Manner is a UW professor of orthopedics and sports medicine. He specializes in joint replacement surgery, including minimally-invasive hip and knee replacement surgery. His major interests relate to the care and treatment of osteoarthritis.

He sees patients for a variety of conditions, including osteoarthritis (hip/knee); rheumatoid arthritis (hip/knee), developmental hip dysplasia, metastatic disease to the hip/pelvis/knee, hip fracture and meniscus tears in the knee.

Patient Care Philosophy

Many patients express interest in minimally-invasive approaches to hip and knee surgery. I believe that this type of surgery, though technically challenging, offers many benefits to the patient, including less tissue injury, less post-operative pain, faster rehabilitation, and a shorter hospital stay.

Clinical Interests

Minimally-invasive surgery for knee and hip replacement; hemi-resurfacing arthroplasty of the hip; hip fractures; knee arthroscopy and treatment for degenerative conditions in hip and knee.

Research Interests

Clinical research on treatments for osteoarthritis; developing models of care, including cost effectiveness models for minimally-invasive surgery; research on cartilage biology and tissue engineering, particularly the role of artificial matrix constructs to replace diseased cartilage in conjunction with adult stem cells and developing new treatments for joint diseases and bringing them to practical, clinical use.
