Great experience with this doctor.

I have had 2 different surgeries to replace torn ACLs with Dr. Lawler in the last 5 years. He performed both surgeries using two different methods (one was a patellar tendon autograft, the other was an allograft). Both surgeries were very successful and I've been extremely satisfied with the outcomes. Dr. Lawler is professional, courteous and is willing to take the time to answer any question in detail. And he always seems to be in a great mood which I consider a big plus. I highly recommend him.
