Review Us

Welcome to Orthopedic Specialists of Scottsdale, the office of Dr. Bertrand Kaper

Dr. Kaper is one of the premier orthopedic surgeons in Arizona and the Southwest for hip, knee and shoulder replacement surgery. He has been in private practice in Arizona since 1999- having performed more than 13,000 surgeries. Combining minimally invasive therapies with highly advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Kaper is able to help patients quickly return to a full and active lifestyle.

CORI (formerly called NAVIO) robotic-assisted technology offers patients the most up-to-date technology for both total and partial knee replacements, while the Direct Anterior (DA) approach provides the least invasive technique for hip replacement available.

Dr. Kaper is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (www.abos.org) and fellowship-trained in adult reconstructive surgery, specifically joint replacement surgery. He serves as Chairman of the Department of Surgery and Chief of the Orthopaedic Surgery section at HonorHealth Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center, in Scottsdale. His clinics serve both the Scottsdale/Phoenix metropolitan area and Yavapai County at two conveniently located offices.

As a recognition of his contributions to the evolving field of robotic knee surgery, Dr. Kaper was recently chosen as one of the Top Knee Replacement Surgeons in United States.

COVID-19 Protocols

Unfortunately, as we all know, COVID-19 continues to challenge our day-to-day lives.  During these difficult times, we continue to put the health and well-being of our patients as our number one priority.

In the office, we require all patients and visitors (vaccinated and un-vaccinated) to wear masks.

For patients who need surgery, it is our policy that all patients be vaccinated prior to their surgery.  This policy is to protect you as the patient as well as the medical personnel who will be taking care of you in and around the time of surgery.

We are happy to discuss any concerns you may have related to our policies as well as discuss any medical facts related to the available COVID-19 vaccines.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we strive to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

Signs You May Need a Hip Replacement

Our Patients Are Saying

,,

Dr. Kaper quickly assessed the problem and laid out a course of action (pre-surgical physical therapy; lots of information about what I could expect; surgery that was amazing quick and skillful; lots of ice; more physical therapy at home; followed by additional out-patient physical therapy), and got me back on my feet within less time than I could have imagined.
