Dr. Hayden N. Box joined the staff of orthopaedic surgeons at Essex Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Salem on September 1st.

Specializing in hip and knee arthritis, Dr. Box’s areas of interest include total hip and knee replacements and revision joint replacement. “Essex Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is fortunate to have Dr. Box bring not only his expertise, but also his compassion to the practice, and more importantly, to the community,” said Dr. Thomas E. Hoerner. “He will be a great complement to our comprehensive services and capabilities and help keep us at the forefront of orthopaedic medicine.”

Dr. Box received his Bachelor’s in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN and his MD from Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. He conducted his Fellowship in Hip and Knee Replacement at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. Dr. Box conducted his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX.

Dr. Box sees his goal as helping people get back to doing the things that matter most to them – vacations with family, walks with grandchildren, swimming, cycling or golf with friends. He says it’s what drew him to the career. “We take all of these things for granted until they become too painful to enjoy. Helping patients thrive was a major reason I went into orthopaedics.”
