About Me

Hans F. Joseph, DO is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Altru Orthopedics & Sports Medicine specializing in fracture care and polytrauma. He believes it's the physician's role to work with the body's natural healing processes to restore the person to health. In his free time, Dr. Joseph enjoys cooking and baking, hunting, fishing, hiking, and gardening.

Philosophy of Medicine

"My practice is different than most in that I meet most of my patients after a very traumatic event and injury (usually a broken bone). I attempt to put the patient and their loved ones at ease in this stressful time. I discuss options with them to choose the best treatment plan for them as an individual to help maximize their recovery and return them as close to their prior level of function as possible."
