The Entire JIS Orthopedics Story

In 1971, Dr. Thomas Mallory performed the first total hip replacement in Columbus, Ohio, at the Ohio State University Hospital. He founded Joint Implant Surgeons, Inc. in 1972, an orthopaedic surgery practice specializing in total hip and total knee replacement.

In 1987, Dr. Adolph Lombardi, Jr. joined the practice after completing Fellowships at both Joint Implant Surgeons and the National Hospital for Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation in Arlington, Virginia. Dr. Keith Berend joined the practice in 2003 after training at Duke University and completing a Fellowship at Joint Implant Surgeons.
