Wow

Two years ago I couldn't stand for 5 minutes, use stairs, or do much of anything. After having both knees and 1 hip replaced by Dr. Vittitoe and his DMOS team, I am a new woman. Can stand, walk, wait in line without pain. This even though I am obese. A brilliant surgeon with an EXCELLENT "bedside manner" as well!
