Dr. Matthew Dietz, Orthopedic Surgeon and Associate Professor

“What makes Palacos R+G so special is the consistency and reliability. In the operating room, it seems like every day there’s something different. To have something be there that you can trust and rely on in each case, I think is really important for the excellent outcomes for the patient.”

Dr. Dietz works as an Orthopedic Surgeon and Associate Professor at West Virginia University specializing in hip and knee replacements and complicated revisions with research interest in implant associated infections.

A journey through time with PALACOS® R+G*

* In the United States, PALACOS® R+G is indicated for use in the second stage of a two stage revision for the total joint arthroplasty after the initial infection has been cleared.
