About Charles S Rutherford

Bio

Charles S. Rutherford, M.D. is the founding member of the Southwest Joint Replacement & Sports Medicine Center where he specializes in less invasive techniques for total hip and knee replacements. A native of Dallas, Dr. Rutherford graduated from SMU in 1976. He received his medical degree from University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1980, and then completed a five-year residency in othropaedics at the Medical College of Virginia. He spent another year to fellowship in adult reconstruction at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota before returning to Dallas to establish his joint replacement practice.

Dr. Rutherford has held the positions of president of the medical staff, chief of surgery, and chief of orthopedics at Medical City Dallas Hospital. For the past decade, he has had a special interest in less-invasive joint replacement techniques, including quad-sparing total knee replacements, partial knee replacements, and anterior approach total hip replacements. Dr. Rutherford is Fellow of the American Association of Orthopedic Surgery, American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, and is board certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery.

Dr. Rutherford is a member of a small group of orthopedic surgeons from around the nation involved with the development of minimally invasive total knee replacement techniques and an interest in minimally invasive hip replacements.

“It’s very rewarding when patients come to me in pain and entrust me with their most basic need—their health,” he says. “When I can replace knees or hips and within a month they’re back doing all the things they love and haven’t been able to do in a long time, I know their quality of life has improved tremendously.”
