In efforts to protect you the patient and our staff, we will be pre-screening every patient who presents to the office. All patients need to present to their appointments wearing a mask.

We ask for you to arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment for the pre-screening. If failed, your appointment will be re-scheduled out two weeks.

Unless the patient is a minor or needs assistance, only the patient will be allowed to enter the suite.

Our acute injury walk-in clinic will be re-opening beginning 7/6/2020. Hours will be Monday-Friday 8AM to 10AM at our Carmel and Greenwood locations.

“Folks in Indianapolis are such pleasant, hard-working, genuine people. It’s an honor to be able to serve each of them and the Indianapolis community.”

John Hur

Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. John Hur is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in adult hip and knee reconstruction and trauma. He is an expert at the Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) to hip replacement, the latest technique that requires no muscle cutting, improving recovery with less pain.

He will tell you, orthopedic surgery is the perfect combination of his love for engineering and medicine. Dr. Hur graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering in 1993. 

Outside of the classroom, he was captain and quarterback of MIT’s Division III football team. Following graduation, he worked for two years at a Wall Street investment banking firm before pursuing his career in medicine. Dr. Hur received his medical degree from SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse, New York, and completed his residency training in orthopedic surgery at Brown University in Rhode Island.

His passion for knowledge and desire to be a leader in every endeavor motivated him to complete a comprehensive Orthopedic Trauma Fellowship at Brown with Dr. Peter Trafton; followed by the prestigious Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction Fellowship Program at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Dr. Hur began practicing at Methodist Sports Medicine in 2006 and quickly developed an affinity for the city and people of Indianapolis.

Dr. Hur is the Medical Director of Orthopedics and Joint Replacement as well as the Medical Director of Rehabilitation at the Indiana University Health North Medical Center. He is driven to perfect patient care and satisfaction for orthopedic patients at his hospital, which has resulted in IU North Hospital being designated a top hospital for orthopedic joint replacement.

His career interests are in continuing to improve hip and knee replacements through research and design and the Direct Anterior Approach to hip replacement. Dr. Hur constantly seeks to incorporate the most cutting edge technology into his practice such as computer-assisted total knee replacement, minimally invasive hip and knee surgery, direct anterior total hip replacement, and outpatient total joint replacements.

Dr. Hur understands that it takes more than surgical expertise to improve a person’s quality of life. He takes his time with patients to make sure all of their questions and concerns are addressed before and after surgery. He collaborates with his anesthesiologists and nurses to ensure patients are comfortable after surgery to enable the most pleasant recovery possible. Finally, Dr. Hur ensures all of his patients receive the best possible rehabilitation using select, dedicated and caring therapists.

Dr. Hur’s greatest joy and reward is seeing all of his patients return to the happy, active lifestyle they deserve. When he is not at work, Dr. Hur enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife, whom he met on their first day of medical school, enjoy golfing, skiing and traveling with their two daughters and a son.
