Great surgeon. Replaced both my knees, the first being in 2009 and the second in 2010. I have not had any issue wiht them at all. I do a lot of walking, use my stationary bike daily, and my husband are members of the YMCA in Saratoga,where we workout in the gym and walk the track. He is truly the very best!!!

The phone call from his office with the results of my MRI was most unsettling and the person calling me was unable to answer many of my questions.
