What Our Patients Are Saying
Patient Testimonals
  • This week is six months from my surgery. I just ran 3 miles this morning with no pain during or afterwards. I am not at my old pace...but I am on the way.I have been off blood thinners for two months and my muscle mass is equal on both legs. I have no knee issues and can accomplish all requirements for physical therapy. I cannot say how pleased I am to be where I am today and I could not have done it without your expertise. Thank you so much for the opportunity to run, swim, bike, play with my kids....and not hobble around the rest of my life. I have no signed jersey for your wall, but 20 years from now, be confident that I owe the ability to walk my daughter down the aisle to you.
