Two Swedish-affiliated physicians -- John Hsiang, M.D., with the Swedish Neuroscience Institute and Paul Schwaegler, M.D., with Orthopedics International -- are the only surgeons in western Washington who are taking part in the Archus Orthopedics-sponsored TFAS® (Total Facet Arthroplasty System) Trial.
