Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI) has named Jay Patel, M.D., the new chief strategy officer. He replaces James Caillouette, M.D., a founder of HOI who held the position for more than 10 years. Dr. Caillouette assumed the board Chair position on January 1, 2021.

The institute performs the most hip and knee replacement surgeries in California.

“Dr. Patel is unique at HOI in that beyond his superb training as a hip and knee surgeon, he also worked as a consultant for McKinsey—a world-renown strategic consultancy group. This combination of expertise will be extremely valuable for the institution moving forward,” said Dr. Caillouette, who will remain an active surgeon and leader at HOI.

In his new role, Dr. Patel will oversee long-term planning and strategy for HOI’s continued expansion and work with HOI leaders, more than 80 orthopedic surgeons, and 300 medical staff. In 10 years, HOI has grown to include a unique inpatient specialty hospital, two clinics, and four ambulatory surgery centers, including its newest facility in Los Angeles County’s Marina del Rey.

Dr. Patel is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in total joint replacement and adult reconstructive surgery. His area of expertise includes both primary and revision surgical procedures of the hip and knee. He also brings expertise in new surgical techniques including anterior approach hip replacement surgery, computer navigation, and robotic joint replacement. He is the co-director of the HOI Joint Replacement Fellowship. Dr. Patel is an active member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, American Joint Replacement Registry, and is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He is published in multiple areas of orthopedic research including, computer navigation systems for total joint replacement, revision of complex hip and knee replacement surgery, and orthopedic clinical outcomes.

Dr. Patel completed his fellowship in adult reconstruction, arthritis, and joint replacement surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Dr. Patel performed his orthopedic surgical residency at the University of California, Irvine, under the guidance of Dr. Robert Gorab and Dr. Steven Barnett. Dr. Patel earned his medical doctorate and master's degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University. While at Stanford, Dr. Patel was a member of the Stanford Biodesign Innovation Program where he researched computer navigation systems for joint replacement surgery and assisted in the design of multiple orthopedic surgical devices. Dr. Patel graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard University with a bachelor's degree in biochemical sciences.

“It is an honor to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Caillouette and I will continue in the spirit of his sage leadership,” said Dr. Patel. “His vision for the future of HOI is my vision as well, and we plan to build on our successful past as we continue to make the institution the best orthopedic surgical facility in the world.”

HOI has performed nearly 150,000 procedures since its founding and is ranked in the top two percent of orthopedic hospitals in the nation, according to research from U.S. News and World Report. HOI has the lowest hip-knee replacement surgery complication rate in southern California and is ranked number two nationally.
