New Surgeon Will Offer Total Knee Or Hip Replacement Surgeries In Marysville

MARYSVILLE – A new orthopedic surgeon, Dr. David Samani, will begin seeing patients at Community Memorial Healthcare (CMH) in Marysville on Sept. 7th, 2018. Dr. Samani’s practice will offer total joint replacement surgeries to patients at the Marysville facility, eliminating travel to a larger, more urban area for the procedures.

“The added convenience to our patients to be able to have their knee or hip joint replacements performed locally at CMH is invaluable,” said Curtis Hawkinson, chief executive officer. “It will greatly decrease the anxiety and burden of travel, while providing immediate access to both a swing bed recovery option, and local physical and occupational therapy services.”

Dr. David Samani is a board certified orthopedic surgeon from Lincoln, Neb., where he is chairman of the department of orthopedics at Bryan LGH Medical Center. He also has outreach clinics at hospitals in Belleville, Mankato, Beatrice, Neb., and Osceola, Neb.

His clinic in Marysville will also specialize in fracture repair and some sports medicine.

Dr. Samani graduated magna cum laude from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1980, before accepting a health professional scholarship from the United States Air Force and receiving his Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Iowa School of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa in 1983. He completed his orthopedic surgery residencies at the University of Kansas School of Medicine and Wichita/St. Francis Regional Medical Center. Following his residencies, he served in active duty military service as Chief of Orthopedics and a flight surgeon, and was deployed in Operation Desert Shield and Storm. Upon his return from active duty, Dr. Samani was a Trauma Fellow at the University of California-Davis Medical Center, Sacramento, Calif.
