The company has implemented 75 Destination Centers of Superior Performance in joint and spine surgery. Prior, he was founder and president of a 16-surgeon subspecialty Musculoskeletal Center that included joint replacement, spine, sports medicine, foot/ankle, hand, and fracture care. In 1995, Dr. Steele created a system of care—named “Joint Camp” by one of his patients—that addressed every aspect of care from the patient and family perspective and created a structure that would ensure long term success. Over the next 10 years he used the model to develop similar programs in surgical specialties such as spine and vascular.
