Dr. Prather is one of only a few surgeons in central Indiana performing the direct anterior hip replacement. After completing his training as an orthopedic surgeon at the IU School of Medicine and University of Louisville School of Medicine, he completed a fellowship at Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas to further develop his joint replacement skills. Dr. Prather’s enthusiasm for the anterior hip procedure developed because it offers patients a much easier, faster recovery.

“I knew I wanted to do a fellowship after my orthopedic surgery residency in Direct Anterior Hip Replacement. This method is so much easier on the body, so people heal quickly. I’ve seen patients go home the same day, many go home the next day.”

Dr. Prather married his high school sweetheart from Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis; they now have two young children. Having played varsity soccer at Wabash College, Dr. Prather is passing that passion along to his children. He helps coach his children’s soccer and baseball teams. He loves woodworking and restoring cars. The Prather family is active with church, sports, school and family activities.
