Paul S. Roettges, MD

Dr. Paul Roettges is a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon. He attended University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA, where he completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. Dr. Roettges continued his educational training and received his medical degree from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, IL. He went on to complete an Orthopedic Surgery residency at University of Arizona, Banner University Medical Center, in Tucson, AZ. Following his residency, he completed a fellowship in Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction at the renowned Mayo Clinic in his hometown of Jacksonville, FL.

Dr. Roettges has spent his career perfecting the direct anterior total hip replacement. This minimally invasive, muscle sparing approach to hip replacement leads to quicker recovery and improved patient outcomes, allowing most patients to go home the same day as surgery. He now incorporates the latest cutting-edge technology of computer assistance into each hip replacement to further personalize implant position and sizing for each patient.  

In addition to hip replacement, Dr. Roettges performs hundreds of robotic-assisted knee replacements each year. He was the very first surgeon to introduce MAKO robotic assisted knee replacement to St. Augustine, FL, and has since brought the newest advancement in robotic assisted knee surgery, The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution, to Flagler and Ascension St. Vincent’s St. Johns hospitals. This technology allows Dr. Roettges to precisely craft and perform a unique plan, limiting the need for soft tissue releases, for each patient’s individual knee. 

Dr. Roettges takes time with each patient to thoroughly review their condition and imaging studies, while determining an individualized treatment plan that best fits their lifestyle needs. 

He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Orthopedic Association and American Association of Knee and Hip Surgeons.
