Dr. David Pocos of Northern Ohio Medical Specialists (NOMS) Access Orthopaedics has recently completed advanced training in the Cormet hip resurfacing arthroplasty, a conservative alternative to total hip replacement.
The procedure is ideally suited for younger, more active patients. The Cormet better maintains the normal mechanics of the joint, while preserving bone.
Pocos graduated from the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine and did his residency training in Cleveland. He then went on to complete a fellowship in total joint replacement at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.
He is a member of the NOMS with offices in Norwalk and Willard. He resides in Norwalk with his wife and three children.
To schedule an appointment to find out if you may be candidate for the Cormet hip resurfacing, call Dr. Pocos at (419) 663-5000.
