"I highly recommend this gifted surgeon to anyone needing knee replacement surgery. I had several complicating medical problems but Dr
was" able to effectively deal with them. My new knee is working very well and is making a major difference in my lifestyle.

"Surgery, recovery and in-home rehab went very well. IU Saxony Hospital had very good orientation program - and provided a binder of info - that was very helpful" in preparing for surgery and aftermath. Though I had some concern about having just a couple nights in the hospital as well as having rehab only at home, I decided to trust dr.
( who had been highly recommended by my pcp), and everything went just as he predicted. The key was doing the exercises that were recommended and walking a lot.
, the nurse practitioner, was exceptionally helpful and always available be phone for questions or concerns. Today it's really rare for me to have any knee pain at all. Having this surgery was one of the best "quality of life" decisions I've ever made.

Orthopedics: Knees

Some orthopedic doctors specialize in the bones, muscles and tendons of the knee, from treating ACL tears and arthritis to performing knee replacement surgery.

Excess weight puts more pressure on weight-bearing joints, particularly the knees. This can eventually lead to knee replacement. (Photo by The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group)
Orthopedics - Knee & Leg

Does being overweight put you at higher risk of knee replacement surgery? Yes, but a small increase in activity and decrease in weight can make a difference.

As differences between men and women's knees are better understood, effective treatments can be targeted specific to women with knee pain, says Closkey. (Photo by Karen Geswein)
Orthopedics - Knee & Leg

Knee pain is a common problem that interferes with daily activity and women may be at a higher risk. One highly rated provider shares causes and solutions.

Orthopedics - Knee & Leg

Knee injuries are the most common ailment that runners experience. If you run and experience pain, do you need a knee brace? What kind is best? What should you do first? Is a brace the best solution?

Orthopedics - Knee & Leg

As baby boomers desire to stay fit, hip and knee replacement surgeries are growing increasingly popular.

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

He is very busy and the wait time can be a little long once you are there. He is a very skilled surgeon. He is straight forward so that you understand exactly what your situation is. He is also very down to earth. I had a series of injections and he is good with the needle. He does his best to make them as pain free as possible. His physician’s assistant is fantastic as well!

He has been seeing the doctor for about 2-3 years. He has the most advanced equipment. He is straight forward and will talk to you in great detail about your situation. His PA

Unfortunately, it wasn't a good experience. One of the primary reasons for the experience was that it took several months to have the surgery performed. Other reasons included long wait times on appointment days and poor communication on the part of the physician.

The insurer was giving me trouble getting my settlement ordered wrist braces, so I saw Dr.

Fantastic ! I was very concerned about surgery even though I was in a lot of pain. I had surgery on an ankle four years ago (another doctor and another state) and it did not go that well. This was a totally different experience. The doctor (Dr.
Santa Barbara Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
) was very personable. He understood some of my extra issues right away. He gave me information to read on the procedure. All X-rays are done right in the office and are readily available for the doctor. The staff was excellent. They call if he is going to be late for an appointment due to his surgery schedule. Like most busy practices, he does get backed up. I would advise an early appointment if possible. Office is easy to get to and is very near

hospital. He cooperated 100% when I specifically asked for a PT group that I knew about. He works with them all and has a good reputation with them. I also meet another member of the practice (sorry - I can not remember the name) for my discharge from the hospital. (My doctor had the weekend off.) He was also very good and answered all my questions about what to look for regarding blood clots (always an issue with all surgery patients.) The billing was fast though there was a strange problem with the initial billing (long story - does not have to be covered here. I am assuming that someone accidently type the wrong number) the doctor's office straightened out without my having to do anything. My share of the bill was very reasonable. I am now 200% better than what I was before surgery. :> and doing better every day. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr.

or this practice.
