Dr. Richardson specializes in adult reconstructive joint replacement with a focus on outpatient joint replacement including total hip replacement, total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, and revision total joint replacement.  

Born and raised in Honolulu, Dr. Richardson is a third-generation Native Hawaiian orthopedic surgeon. He attended college at the University of California, Berkeley.

While there, he trained in state-of-the-art hip and knee replacement techniques and worked with internationally recognized experts Dr. Adolph V. Lombardi Jr. and Dr. Keith R. Berend. 

Dr. Richardson is honored to continue his family’s orthopedic legacy in Hawaii. His grandfather, Dr. Barrister (Buster) Allen Richardson, was the first Native Hawaiian board-certified orthopedic surgeon, and his father, Allen B.

Dr. Richardson’s special interests include muscle-sparing anterior approach total hip replacement, minimally invasive partial and total knee replacement, complex revision hip and knee reconstruction, rapid rehabilitation protocols, and outpatient or same-day surgery hip and knee replacement.  

In his spare time, Dr. Richardson is passionate about sports. He was co-captain of the men’s water polo team while at UC Berkeley, and he continues to enjoy canoe paddling, surfing, swimming, hiking, and spending time with his family.

How PRP Therapy Works

If you have a slow-healing injury or you struggle with chronic pain due to arthritis, it’s time to consider PRP therapy. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses your body’s own healing cells to accelerate healing in all types of painful orthopedic problems.
