Hip & Knee Reconstruction Specialist
Microinvasive and Robotic Surgery
Brandon Gough, M.D., is an orthopaedic surgeon with extensive experience in hip and knee replacement surgery using micro-invasive surgical approaches as well as robotic surgery. Dr. Gough focuses on soft-tissue preservation and early recovery following total joint replacement. This allows for less pain after surgery, minimal hospital stay, and in some cases, outpatient total joint replacement.
Dr. Gough continues to use the latest technology available to achieve excellent results and return his patients to their active life-style as soon as possible.
Dr. Gough received his undergraduate degree from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, and earned his medical degree from Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. He completed a general orthopaedics residency and internship at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita, Kan. He is fellowship trained in hip and knee reconstruction surgery.
Dr. Gough is currently accepting new patients at Hedley Orthopaedic Institute.
Direct Superior Total Hip Replacement
Dr. Gough offers the Direct Superior Total Hip Replacement procedure using the MAKOplasty robot, which is also used in knee resurfacing procedures. This micro-invasive surgery features state-of-the-art technology and has a remarkably high record of successful outcomes. Hedley Orthopaedic Institute is the only practice in Arizona able to offer this advanced procedure. One of the primary patient-benefits of this approach is that there is no need for the surgeon to force the patient’s leg into an abnormal position during the procedure. As a result, muscular and tendon damage is prevented. Many patients enjoy a shorter recovery period, allowing them to get back to the activities they enjoy with less downtime than may be experienced following some other hip replacement procedures.

Dr. Gough has given me back my mobility, and given me hope for a healthy future, and active retirement. Finding just the right doctor for my very challenging knee replacement, to say the least, was not an easy one. We drove from Las Vegas to Phoenix for a consulation with Dr. Gough. As soon as my wife and I had our first meeting with Dr. Gough, we knew he was the only person we could trust with this procedure. He is one of the most knowledgable, caring doctors I have ever met. Without hesitation I would recommend Dr. Gough to anyone needing knee replacement surgery.
