Dr. Chesley Durgin, Celebrates Milestone of 1,000 Successful Cases Utilizing MAKO Surgical  Robotic System at TOC

Dr. Chesley Durgin, a distinguished orthopedic surgeon  specializing in knee and hip joint replacements, has achieved a significant milestone by  completing 1,000 successful cases with the MAKO Surgical Robotic System with Touch Surgery  at Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic (TOC). Dr. Durgin, who joined TOC in 2018 as a fellowship trained knee and hip joint replacement specialist, has established himself as a leader in the field  of orthopedic surgery. 

Dr. Durgin specializes in a range of advanced procedures, including robotic total knee  replacement, robotic partial knee replacement, and innovative muscle-sparing approaches to  total hip replacement, including the anterior approach. Additionally, he specializes in revision  total hip and revision total knee surgery, as well as the treatment of complex periprosthetic joint  infections and complex primary joint replacement for post-traumatic and congenital deformities. His commitment to precision and patient-centric care led him to be the first surgeon in the  Tallahassee area to utilize the MAKO robotic joint replacement system, offering patients a more  precise and customized approach based on their own 3D anatomy. 

“I am thrilled to have reached the milestone of 1,000 cases with the MAKO Surgical Robotic  System. This technology has revolutionized orthopedic surgery, allowing for unparalleled  precision and customization,” said Dr. Chesley Durgin. “My goal has always been to offer my  patients the most advanced and effective treatments available, and I am grateful for the  opportunity to make a positive impact on their lives.”

His proactive adoption of cutting-edge  technologies resonates with our vision, where precision and personalized care take precedence.  This accomplishment, coupled with recent investments in cutting-edge facilities and robotic  surgery, reaffirms TOC’s unwavering dedication to providing outstanding experiences for our  orthopedic patients.”
