Excellent diagnosis, surgery and recovey

Dr. Plancher is simply the best - he quickly diagnosed my problem, the prep for surgery was through and careful, surgery and recovery went without a hitch and three months after my partial knee replacement I was hiking over very difficult terrain in the Galapagos.

Excellent Surgeon, office and results

I was well prepared for my partial knee replacement by Dr. Plancher and his staff I needed no pain medication and was mobile without assistance in 11 days, better than before surgery in two months and without pain and limitations in three months.

Egotistical Know-it-all

Dr. Plancher performed my knee surgery. Nearly 18 months later I still have chronic knee pain, swelling and occasionally my knee gives out all together - yet Dr. Plancher insists my knee is 100% perfect. He literally refuses to even explore the possibility that there's still an issue with me knee, going so far as to call me a fool for not agreeing with him. He might be a skilled surgeon, but even the best surgeons cant' fix everything; however, Dr. Plancher is too stubborn to admit that.
