Morris Hospital Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (MHOSM), a mid-size, employed group with modern state-of-the-art offices is seeking a successor for a busy and well-known physician who plans to retire in the next few years. We are seeking a physician who is motivated, has a strong work ethic and desires to become part of a successful orthopedic team. This is an AMAZING opportunity for a surgeon since you will be addressing an established community need and embedded in a well-managed practice that’s been deeply rooted in a large service area for over 28 years. We currently don’t have anyone who does revisions. We’re looking for someone who’s interested in total knee & hip; anterior hip approach is great, but not required.
