Patient Testimonials

This man is very attentive and strong natured. His expertise is extensive, replacing both very worn knees with precision and excellence. I'm 8 months past surgery, easily walking 5 plus miles every day. Not bad for 71 plus years. I am just now starting a 7 month plus trip all the way around the U.S. with our 5th wheel RV. ( Oh ya, pain free ) a really good thing. Floyd Brown Oakland Oregon
