Specialties: Joint replacement, sports medicine, arthroscopy, fracture care
Dr. Stanfield has been in practice at The Center for Orthopedics since 1997. He is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in joint replacement, sports medicine and arthroscopy. Throughout his career, Dr. Stanfield has continued to focus on joint replacement. He has studied various advanced techniques, which enables him to provide his patients with
the system that most closely fits their individual anatomy. One such system is the Stryker Mobile Bearing Hip™. He was the first surgeon in Lorain County to offer his patients this procedure.
According to Dr. Stanfield, “This innovative system provides my hip replacement patients much better stability and range of motion. Active people, like many of the patients I treat, need an implant that enables them to return to the activities they love. It’s a good feeling when my patients tell me they are back to bike riding, exercising and playing with their grandkids after having a joint replacement.”
He was one of the first orthopedic surgeons in the United States to perform hip resurfacing surgery. Dr. Stanfield also completes more than 200 total joint replacements every year.
Dr. Stanfield also performs the Zimmer® Patient Specific Instruments knee replacement procedure, one of the latest innovations which results in a much faster, less painful recovery. “These patients have done really well post-operatively. My goal is to get them back to their normal activities as painlessly as possible,” states Dr. Stanfield.
He is a member of The Ohio State Medical Association, the Cleveland Orthopaedic Society and the Lorain County Medical Society. He has served as head team physician at Steele High School in Amherst, Ohio since 1997.
Dr. Stanfield was raised in Vermilion, which is about 10 miles from The Center for Orthopedics. He received his doctor of medicine degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine and completed his orthopedic surgery residency and general surgery internship at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
