Welcome to

The Knee Hip and
Shoulder Center

The Knee Hip and Shoulder Center was founded on April 1st, 2003 by Dr. Thomas V King in an effort to establish a regional center of expertise focused on the treatment of orthopaedic conditions involving these joints. An innovator in joint replacement care, Dr. King has pioneered efforts to enhance recovery after joint replacement allowing earlier return to function and better outcomes. As a result of these continued efforts, our practice is the busiest in New England and leading the nation in same day outpatient total joint replacement.

In 2017, Dr. Parsons joined Dr. King with the mutual goal of continuing to build on the success of the center in providing the best joint replacement care in the Northeast. With a focus on patient-centered care, patient education, diligent care coordination and best surgical practices, The Knee Hip and Shoulder Center has developed a comprehensive program called AVATAR that ushers patients through the surgery and recovery process with a personalized touch that customizes the care to each patient. The culmination of years of experience has led to the development of the AVATAR Program, in the pages of our website.
