Total Joint Replacement Doctors In Scottsdale Arizona


Orthopedic Surgeon in Scottsdale AZ

Scottsdale Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Russo is a third-generation orthopedic surgeon in Scottsdale,  AZ specializing in total hip and knee replacement surgery and has now performed over 3000 joint replacements since his fellowship training. He feels very grateful to have the opportunity to serve the Phoenix community as an orthopedic surgeon, just as his father and grandfather have done, for over 30 years.

Dr. Russo believes it is essential to listen to patients and to treat them just as he would his own family members. He was specifically drawn to hip and knee replacements because he finds it rewarding to play a role in the transformation of patients whose lives have been limited by their condition and to help return them to the everyday activities and lifestyle they previously enjoyed.







The principles of total knee alignment have evolved greatly over the last decade. Unlike many traditional alignment techniques, Dr. Russo offers a muscle-sparing, personalized approach to total knee replacement which is unique to each patient’s anatomy to recreate the three kinematic axes by which the knee moves. This technique allows for greater patient satisfaction, improved range of motion and earlier return to function by restoring the relationship of the native ligaments surrounding the knee.

Dr. Russo utilizes the latest technology to assist in performing accurate and personalized joint replacement with greater precision. Controlled, automated impaction combined with technology assisted component positioning systems work in conjunction with the surgeon and each patient’s unique anatomy to achieve optimal outcomes. This added level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and potential longevity of your new joint.










Dr. Russo utilizes a special portable device after your knee replacement called “Portable Connect” which is delivered to your home after your surgery and is covered by your insurance. This device allows your new knee to complete a full revolution even if you only can comfortably achieve limited motion immediately after surgery through variable pedal radius technology. This allows for a more rapid progression of your range of motion. Dr. Russo is able to monitor your progress after surgery through this device remotely through a personalized portal to ensure you are achieving optimal results.



Matthew is a great hip and knee doctor that provides great results. Follow visits he directs you in directions to keep things functioning in tip top shape.

Two Home Runs!

Dr. Matt replaced both my knees (one in July 2022 and the other in November 2022). Along with thorough explanations of the process, he provided a significant amount of information to prepare me for surgery, post-surgery pain management, and then a detailed plan for recovery. His staff is supportive, accessible, and highly competent. Dr. Matt’s surgical skill and knowledge, and my complete commitment to the recovery process, resulted in two terrific outcomes!!

Top Doc

Dr. M. Russo showed great care and concern for my R & L hip pain. He reviewed X-Rays with me and discussed recommendations. Questions were asked and answered and information provided treatment plan options. Dr. Russo showed care and concern throughout my visit. In 2019, Dr. M. Russo performed a total right knee replacement for me. Therefore, it was obvious that I would return to him for my hip problems.

Great orthopedist Did fantastic job on Hip surgery Now working on knees See Vincent Russo -Wed regarding fracture on arm


Excellent Orthopedic Surgeon!

Had a brief visit with Dr. Matt Russo to check on left hip pain. Took me a long time to get an appointment as he is very busy (over a month). In the past, he did a total right hip replacement for me (2 1/2 yrs. ago) which was very successful and an easy recovery). This visit began with X-rays and a discussion with Dr. Russo about my diagnosis. He proposed physical therapy for arthritic and other pain, which was a good remedy at this juncture! Dr. Russo is an excellent physician and very easy to engage in conversation! Highly recommended!

Definitely 5 stars or more

From walking through the door until leaving, I could not have been happier. I was very impressed with the staff and particularly with Dr. M Russo. He knew what he was doing and made me very confident with him and suggested going to SMIL for the necessary shot for my hip and it worked!! He won’t lose me as a patient!!

I am a registered nurse and recently had a partial knee replacement for arthritis. Dr. Russo was informative, precise and very professional from the beginning. He answered all questions and made sure that I was comfortable with the procedure and the outcome before deciding on the surgery. Post op care was great and he called day after surgery to see how I was doing. CK was very caring and listened to my concerns post op also. Six weeks post-op and I am almost back to normal. Will refer.

Dr. Russo is a great doctor. Had a total knee replacement, he answered all questions thoroughly. He is is kind and easy to talk to as well as an excellent surgeon. The whole office was easy to work with as well. Highly recommend.


As a retired physical therapist I found myself on the other side of a walker: needing a total hip replacement. Having just moved to Arizona, I did not have professional or personal knowledge of orthopedists in the area. I surfed the internet for orthopedists specializing in Total Hip Replacement by anterior approach. Dr. Russo’s website answered all my preliminary concerns and questions especially in regards to pain management. I couldn’t be more pleased with my outcome!!

The TKR on my right knee was performed in July 2019 I was driving at five works and back to swimming at seven. I was quickly able to get back to my usual 90 minute swim several days a week and have begun taking short hikes. Being active in order to participate in sports travel & daily life was critical to me. Dr Russo answered all questions his office staff were exceptionally helpful and the nursing and physical therapy staff at Scottsdale Shea HonorHealth were superb. Though first couple of weeks are no picnic you’re up and walking within hours after surgery -home physical therapy answered so many questions and were extremely helpful .I then continued with my own physical therapist and after about three months I barely knew anything that happened. I recommended Dr Russo to numerous friends one of whom recently had a hip replacement. I have total confidence in Dr Russo and recommend him to anyone considering the surgery my personal advice do it sooner rather than later enjoy your life.

Dr. Russo did a revision knee replacement and I am delighted with the results. If I ever need hip or knee replacement/revision he will definitely be my choice.

T. S.

Dr. Russo is the consummate professional, and I would recommend him to anyone needing total replacement surgery of the knee. I had my right knee replaced, and I am totally pleased with the results. Had 130° ROM at three weeks after surgery, and I will be returning to work at least two weeks earlier than anticipated. You cannot find a better Orthopedic Surgeon than Dr. Matt Russo, and that includes his father Vincent Russo which is considered one of the top orthopedic surgeons in Arizona.

WOW!!! I can’t begin to give Dr. Matthew Russo the thanks he deserves. Two years of dealing with a bad hip, Dr M. Russo verified I was bone on bone. After having the initial consultation with Dr. M. Russo, he explained the anterior approach, I was ready! I now have my life back. No pain or consequences from the surgery. How fortunate I have been to find Dr. Matthew Russo!!!! He is a fantastic individual, easy to communicate with, VERY SKILLED, and an Excellent bedside manner.

J. Harris

I was long overdue for revision hip surgery with a good amount of bone loss when I went to see Matt. He was very passionate about the need for surgery and I was scheduled as soon as possible. Matt surrounds himself with an entire team of professionals from scheduling to hospital staff who are very knowledgeable, efficient and kind, just like himself. I am totally pleased with the results and would highly recommend him .

Dr. Matthew Russo skillfully replaced my right hip with anterior surgery July 2018. I learned late in life that my hip was deformed at birth but never gave any grief until age 57. I could not walk long distances, sit to stand, or exercise without a grinding pain. I never had surgery and this by far was the BEST experience. I literally had NO PAIN post surgery with no need for pain medications at all. I highly recommend Dr. Matthew Russo and his team at Ortho Arizona Scottsdale!!

P. S.

I had my partial knee replaced on June 27 2018 a week later I was walking with no cane or walker in the house. I did the exercises Dr. Matt Sent everyday and i got better and better! I left for Shanghai and Italy in September and have walked everywhere up and down with no pain. I get just a little tired but can tell it’s all good from here!??

S. Gueli

Dr Matt Russo performed a total knee replacement on my right knee. I am extremely happy with his expertise, skills, and bedside manner. He took whatever time I needed to understand the procedure and answer any questions I had. It’s been 2 months since my surgery, and for the first time in many years I am pain free – I can walk-up stairs without pain, something I was unable to do before. I highly recommend Dr Matt Russo and his staff.

I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Russo 6 weeks ago. I am a pilot and was a little apprehensive as to how long I would be out of the flying game. Dr Russo explained the procedure in detail and 2 hours after surgery I was walking around the hospital floor with a LOT less pain then I had prior to the surgery. One week later and I felt completely normal….I am 76 years old and quite active thanks to Dr. Russo…..I can not say enough about how amazing he is and how well this turned out!!

R. Rina

May 14,2018 Dr. Russo completed my 3rd left knee replacement. the prior replacements were preformed by other Doctors. Three weeks after my surgery I was walking without crutches and had not felt better in many years. Dr. Russo has been a blessing in my life. Words can not the express how much I appreciate what He has done for me. His caring personality and follow up is exceptional.

J. Jones

Being I am not the doctoring type I was at least 1 year overdo for replacing my right hip. Matt looked at the X-rays and said it was a mess. He carefully explained the procedure and showed me how he was going to fix my hip. The morning of the procedure he came in reassured me I would be pain free and walking normal. He did exactly as promised. After the procedure I could have gone home that day, no more pain! Can’t say enough how well I was taken care of and highly recommend Dr. Matt Russo.

J. Mahler

I had a knee revision of a knee replace 10 years ago. Dr. Matt Russo was informative, open and had great bedside manner, telling me what he was going to do, what to expect and how to get the most complete recovery possible. The surgery went well and I was up and walking the next day. The pain and strength in my knee was much better than the first surgery with virtually complete rehab after 6 weeks. Walking without assistance within 2 weeks and off pain meds after 2 weeks. Highly recommended.


Dr. Mathew Russo performed a surgical left hip replacement (anterior approach) for me, and I am very pleased with the result. I was quite mobile and driving by the second week, with only mild discomfort. By the fourth week I no longer needed a cane and had only mild discomfort occasionally. It is now two and a half months since my procedure and I feel perfectly well.

S. Babit

Dr Russo replaced my left hip, after 2 years of suffering while other Drs’ told me I had bursitis/arthritis. One visit and an e-ray produced the correct diagnosis. It is now 6 weeks after my surgery, I am walking without aids and have no pain! I tell people I didn’t have “surgery”, I had a “miracle”. I am 66 and I feel ten years younger. Dr Matt is professional, confident and approachable. I never once doubted his abilities.

Need a Hip replacement? If you are in need for a total hip replacement, get in touch with Dr. Matthew W. Russo. I recently had my left hip replaced and I could not be happier of the procedure, and fast healing of the anterior method that Dr. Matthew W. Russo uses. Overnight in the hospital and went home the next day. I’m 69 years old and 6 weeks post operation. Stopped taking pain medication after 4 weeks. I’m walking with zero pain and can actually climb a ladder, pain free.

G. Mitchell

I strongly recommend Dr. Matthew Russo to anyone needing a joint replacement. I had a total knee replacement in February 2018 and Dr. Russo did an outstanding job. Highest of recommendations!

V. Geiger

After struggling with severe hip pain for many months, Dr. Russo quickly diagnosed the need for a new hip. I had already had X-Rays (different MD) , did PT, had acupuncture, all with no relief. His office had me scheduled for surgery within 5 weeks. 2 Months later after surgery, I am back to my normal activities. Dr. Russo was extremely kind and compassionate during the whole process. He answered all my questions without ever feeling rushed or foolish. He is great!


This young man did partial knee replacement on me, no pain and no problems. He listens and gives excellent advice. Does things the modern way. He may even be better than his father and grandfather.


Dr Matthew Russo performed a total left hip replacement for me. He did an excellent job. He exudes confidence and rightly so. I had my right hip done in Texas 3 years ago, Both were done with the anterior approach. This one by Dr. Matt was so much easier. I was only in the hospital over night and when I got home the next day I was up and doing things around the house. The next night I was out to dinner with my sister who came to help me. I would highly recommend a very kind, competent Dr. Russo.

G. Steinhilber

I was in need of a hip replacement but with 40 yrs worth of metal running interference…this was going to be a Unique Challenge! I felt Dr. Matts confidence & compassion & Interest & felt extremely confident in him! He was willing to take on the challenge & determined to make it a success! He devised a plan as well as several back up plans & I’m thrilled to say he pulled off Plan A & Beautifully! He also put so much into the Planning & Preparation…Prior to the Surgery! He’s my Humble Hero!

P. J.

Dr. Matthew Russo did an amazing job on my right hip replacement From the initial appointment to the surgery and now in the post op recovery stage, he has been involved the entire time. The pleasure of being able to move without the constant pain has been amazing, and I will always thank him for letting me start living again.

K. Fehrenkamp

Complete satisfaction, successful partial knee replacement.


I needed a revision of a 16 year old knee replacement that had 4 prior surgeries. He diagnosed the problem and was successful in correcting the problem. I am delighted with my recovery time and am back to most of my daily activities. I would highly recommend him for orthopedic knee surgery.
