Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons from people just like you.

"I needed both knees replaced and we went to Dr. VanFlandern because a family friend had an excellent result. My knees were in rough shape and it was less than a" month from when I first saw him until surgery was scheduled. Dr. VanFlandern gave me his number in case I had questions. He called me the night before I entered the hospital to make sure I was all set. He called my wife after surgery and visited me the next morning and every other morning I was there at 5:30AM. Everything has gone well with the knee replacement and I believe he did an outstanding job. The incisions are very neat and healed rapidly. He is consistently rated one of Boston's "Top Docs" and deserves the title.

"I ended up receiving PRP injections through another provider and I am hoping that after the soreness I will be well. I will not return to Dr.
" . He IS a nice man but he simply has too many patients to be able to really listen and understand pain levels, etc.

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)

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?

Matthew Brady
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.

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.

Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
previously performed a total knee replacement for me and he was wonderful. I am very happy with the results and the care I received. This time around, he did arthroscopic surgery on my shoulder and I couldn't be more pleased. The procedure was explained in detail, including pictures from the surgery. All my questions were answered and he worked with me to design a physical therapy plan. Dr.
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is very practical, explains procedures in easily understandable terms, and offers options to his patients. I feel very confident in recommending him to anyone with knee or shoulder issues! He is very professional, thorough, and inspired confidence in me as a patient. I will continue to seek his advice for orthopedic problems.

The surgery was very successful. Now, two months later, my wife is walking again with only occasional support of a cane (which she will not need in the near future), but most importantly, she is walking without pain! What a difference from her condition before the hip replacement. We highly recommend Dr.

and his staff.

II had the surgery in April of 2014 at the Hospital For Special Surgery in NYC. The first two weeks were amazingly easy. I was told to do as much as I could and I did. The beginning of the third week, I started to go downhill. I was told it was tendenitis. Since I have had tendonitis, I was doubtful. I was now on a walker and crutches. I kept getting progressively worse. The crutches were beginning to affect my wrists, arms and shoulders and my right leg which had had a gluteus medius tendon reattached in 2008, was beginning to feel the stress of all the weight being placed on that leg. Dr.
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
told me that the bone was not liking the post and it could take six months. This was very different from the 4 week recovery that I was
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
to believe would be the case. There was no disclosure that it could be anything but perfect. I was told by Dr.
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
that I was not putting enough weight on the leg and that I shouldn't use crutches but a cane. I couldn't. I knew the pain was shocking and intense and kept communicating this, but the xray showed nothing. Finally an mri revealed that there was a fissure in the femur bone. At four months, Dr.
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
told me recovery could take up to a year, but that at six months, if I really couldn't stand it, he could do a revision by entering again, shortening the post and filling the cavity with glue. At that point, I began looking for a second opinion. I left Dr.
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
at 4 months. Cancelled appts and never showed up again. I was never contacted by him or the Hospital for Special Surgery (or rather The Hospital for Special Surgeons), to see how I was or why I had disappeared.
I found Dr. Patrict Meere,whose speciality is revision, at NY
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
's Bone and Joint in NYC. He did an MRI and indicated that there was inflamation around the post and that it looked like it wouldn't heal. He said a proper revision would be a posterior replacement as the position of the post in the anterior surgery angled the post towards the femur. If you are old or slightly overweight, there is the possibility that the minute you put weight on the leg, the post breaks through the femur which it had in my case. He did not recomment entering through the anterior place again as there were nerves that could be permenently damaged and did not recommend glue and a smaller post as the femur was injured and he didn't think glue on live, injured bone tissue was a good idea. He suggested a longer post which bypassed the fissure in the femur giving it time to heal and NO GLUE.
I had the surgery with Dr. Meere in October of 2014. In three weeks I was walking with a cane. In six weeks I was back walking without any help. I was contacted by NY Bone and Joint to see how the surgery had gone after two months, and if I had needed any revision or other aid after the surgery. I was very pleased with the follow up of NY Bone and Joine.
I highly advise anyone considering Anterior Hip Surgery to get a second opinion from a Posterior Hip Surgery Surgeon.
Dr. Meere says that he is not recommending it for anyone as he is seeing them fail at six months, 1 1/2 years, etc. He said Dr.
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
surgery was good, but the surgery shouldn't have been recommended for me. By the way, In Dr.
Washington DC Knee Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
patient notes, he says that I was told that revision would be a possibility, which was a lie. He never painted anything but blue skies about the surgery and my recovery forecast.
Please be careful before you opt for this anterior surgery. I found only positive comments about it on the web. But six months on crutches is brutal. At 73, it is very h****** the rest of your body. I would have been so much better not risking this kind of outcome and doing the posterior surgery from the very beginning. I wanted a speedy recovery. What I got was complete failure. When Dr. Meere opened me up at six months, the ball and post fell out. There was zero healing. Had I not found Dr. Meere, I would have been in serious trouble. Thanks to Dr. Meere, I am now walking two miles a day with my dog.

Very professional, honest. Old school but very educated and knowledgeable. I feel comfortable & confident in his ability to help me with my knees. He is the first doctor that did not just want to rush me into surgery. He was very honest about weight, and go to physical therapy. He treated my condition rather than just operate. Gave supartz injections to help with the pain. Overall very honest, not money hungry, and very capable. The only issue is when he would have to rush into surgery and I had to reschedule, other than that I was very pleased.

It was excellent. He is an excellent doctor and I couldn't be happier with the surgery. The staff, surgery, or the hospital. I was in the waiting room and the nurse would come in and give me all of the prep work and answer my questions. Then he would come in. It wasn't a long period time. I started reading and then he would come in.

He is very good and I recommend him highly. He is young also and very efficient and picks up everything right away I thought that's very good. I will use him again but If God helps me I never want to use him again becausev I don't want to get any injuries. He is very kind to see me again including all the people who work there are very nice and, very pleasant.
