A Holistic Approach to Knee & Hip Replacements | Better Outcomes, Better Performance

A Holistic Approach to Knee & Hip Replacements | Better Outcomes, Better Performance

At the Whole Health Joint Replacement Institute, our procedures are informed by our company-wide philosophies. We believe that well-educated patients can assist in optimizing the results of their same-day joint replacement surgeries. In addition to practicing exceptional and uncompromised orthopedic medicine without primary care referrals, we strive to care for all aspects of our patients’ health, including their physical, mental, and emotional status. For us, the healing process is just as much about educating our patients in regards to risks, complications, and realistic expectations as it is about joint replacement itself. With nearly 40 years of combined experience and 300 educational seminars held over the past 10 years, we believe our statistics speak for themselves.

“Excellent, well run office and staff. Very friendly. Wonderful experience.”

Pre-Operative Care & Personal Patient Concierge Services

The Whole Health Joint Replacement Institute is a medical and orthopedic practice that focuses on the comprehensive well-being of an individual throughout the processes of elective hip and knee replacement surgeries. We believe that caring relationships with our patients can help shape the results of surgery as much as the surgery itself. By providing our patients with a personal patient concierge — someone they can always reach out to with questions or for assistance — Whole Health can encourage the quickest possible recovery by recommending lifestyle changes and alternative medical practices.


Had hip replacement surgery today… back home and feeling great. Very grateful to have someone of this caliber in Crawford County. From the check in person to Dr. Molli I cannot thank you all enough for your excellent care!


Dr. Frndak is an amazing surgeon, caring, and devoted to his patients. My first experience with him was in 1994, when, as a new surgeon, he re-replaced my total knee , and most recently, in October of 2019, when he replaced my husband’s hip. I have the utmost faith in him and his skills, and can’t recommend him enough.


My father had a wonderful experience with Dr. Molli and staff! He came out of surgery and was very grateful for how well he was cared for and respected as a patient!! Highly recommend this team!! Thank you for all you do for our community!


My dad went in December 30 for a total knee replacement. February 14th he turned 85 and is back at full movement and extremely happy with the results. Thank you Dr. Molli and your staff for a job well done and helping to keep our dad active.


I am so thankful Meadville has such a highly qualified orthopedic surgeon such as Dr. Frndak. I didn’t have to do any searching for a surgeon as he has a great reputation in Meadville and “word of mouth” sometimes says it all! I wouldn’t trust any other to perform my two hip replacements, and in the near future; I will be having both knees replaced. He did a wonderful job with my hip replacements although mine weren’t “typical” hip replacement as I had Congenital Hip Dysplasia with my hip sockets not fully formed. He did a wonderful job in getting the hips in line and where they should be. His medical knowledge and ethics make him an awesome physician. There is no need to go out of town to have any joint replacements.

I had my partial knee replacement surgery 2/26/20. They give you so much information and you really learn about the procedure before surgery. They provide you with medications that are thorough for every aspect of your healing process. I feel like I was taken care from the beginning (pre-op), surgery and after care. It was an odd time during the quarantine but I knew they were just a phone call away. I cannot say enough about what a positive experience this was. I’m feeling good and looking forward to getting stronger. Such a great feeling of finally being out of constant pain. Thank you Dr. Molli and crew. I’m so happy with you all! I’m getting my life back and it’s a wonderful feeling. Thank you so much.


I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying my new knees, I am able to go on long walks and be active in other ways with NO PAIN! You did a super job!


My partial knee surgery and recovery were MADE EASY because of you! Thank you for being the BEST!


He put my mind at ease and I never once doubted anything he said. He was so good to me and I have had terrific results because of him. Thank God I investigated before I had the surgery because I feel I got the very best doctor and because of my good outcome many, many people I know have gone to him for surgery or advice. Thank you Dr. Frndak!

Patient of Dr. Philip Frndak

Thank you for the excellent surgery you did for me. I am now ENJOYING my life again. Splash Lagoon and Disney trips are planned soon!
